Work with P!nk Edit
Eminem has collaborated with P!nk on multiple occasions.
In 2010, P!nk recorded vocals for "Won't Back Down," a song taken from his seventh studio album, Recovery. He returned the favor by featuring on "Here Comes the Weekend," taken from P!nk's sixth studio album, The Truth About Love.
P!nk has called Eminem "one of the most poetic, ballsy, and hilarious people this industry has ever seen," while he noted that, "I've always respected what she does."
