Aftermath / Shady Records / Interscope RecordsEminem‘s latest album Revival features his single “Walk on Water,” with vocals by Beyoncé.
But, Em’s longtime producer Denaun Porter says in a new ThisIs50 interview that Bey’s guest feature was actually intended for British singer-songwriter Adele.
He says, “I had a whole different idea that included Beyoncé being on the song. The first person I heard, when I heard it was Adele.”
“I was like, ‘Yo, this would be cool’ and I think something happened with her [Adele] with her voice and she couldn’t do it,” Denaun adds.
“It got to them using Beyoncé. Obviously my mind was already there. There’s only a couple of people that could pull that off.”
Porter’s revelation is particularly interesting because many fans believed Beyoncé was robbed from receiving the Grammy for Album of the Year in February.
Adele took home the coveted trophy.
