Earworm: My Life – .50 Cent Gt. Eminem & Adam Levine

I first the heard Eminem‘s distinct rap as I was half listening to the radio a few day’s ago.  I looked at the song title on my SiriusXM and I saw ‘ My Life – .50 Cent, Eminem, Adam Levine.  I was taken aback for a second, and had to rewind the song.  Now after listening to it a few times since, at first I was sort of disappointed with Fitty’s opening rap, but then he did pick it up in his second one.  Em’s is as alway’s good, and I guess, it’s not so weird with Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine doing the hook, as Eminem has done collaborations with Taylor Swift and Dido in the past.  All in all is a good song, and it’s nice to see .50 back.
