Eminem has surprise dropped a new album, and it's going about as well as you'd expect

Eminem has shock dropped a brand new album, 'Music To Be Murdered By', and managed to kick off a big old mess in the process.

Because obviously.

20 tracks and 64 minutes in length, guests on the release include the late Juice WRLD, Ed Sheeran, Anderson .Paak, Young M.A., Royce Da 5'9'', White Gold, Skylar Grey, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Denaun, Don Toliver, KXNG Crooked and Joell Ortiz.

It's the second track that's attracted criticism though. Titled 'Unaccommodating', it features the lyric: “I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.”

In light of the 2017 attack, which saw 22 people lose their lives when a suicide bomber targeted fans as they left an Ariana Grand show at Manchester Arena, the backlash came pretty quickly.

It's not the first time he's referenced the attack, mentioning it in 2018's 11-minute long freestyle 'Kick Off'

You can check out 'Music To Be Murdered By', and a video for 'Darkness' - which deals with gun violence in America - below.
