Paramore frontwoman unknowingly collaborates with Eminem
Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams has revealed that she recently recorded vocals for a track on the forthcoming debut album from rapper BoB, ‘The Adventures Of Bobby Ray’, only later discovering that Eminem was also on the track.
Williams told MTV: “I was given the track a while ago while we were on tour. The guys and I all loved it. They told me I was crazy if I passed it up. I liked the part too much anyway, so of course I was down. It means a lot that I got to collaborate with a hip hop artist who is from Atlanta. Not far from home. We Southern gals love us some Southern gentlemen. I only found out about Eminem getting on the track, like, a month ago. As if the song couldn’t get any better. He just slays me, he’s such a genius”.
Williams and Eminem appear on ‘Airplanes (Part II)’, which closes the album. Williams also appears alone on part one of the track. Other guests on the album, which is due out next month, include Lupe Fiasco and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo.
