"Walk of Shame" "Where Did the Beat Go?"

"Here Comes the Weekend" is the highly anticipated second collaboration between P!nk and Eminem (following the song "Won't Back Down", in which Eminem was the lead artist, whereas in this song P!nk is). "Here Comes the Weekend" appeared on P!nk's sixth studio album, The Truth About Love, although the song was leaked a few days before the album's release and received a good amount of radio airplay. The song received mixed reviews, as some critics found it "classic P!nk" while others found the song, especially Eminem's part in the song, somewhat pointless. The song is four minutes and twenty-four seconds; it is the eleventh track on the album.

"Here Comes the Weekend" was planned to be released as the first single from the album, but was scrapped in favor of "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)". [1] Because of this, it received some radio airplay prior to the album's release, causing speculation that it would receive a future single release, although it never did. "Here Comes the Weekend" is also only one of two songs (the other being "Where Did the Beat Go?") from the standard edition of The Truth About Love that were never performed live.

BackgroundEdit

P!nk revealed to Australia's Herald Sun that the pair decided to collaborate organically without fussing over contracts and just entered the studio to record the track. "He said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' 'Fuck yeah!' I said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' and he said, 'Fuck yeah!' Handshake. Nothing signed. Done," she recalled. [2]

P!nk spoke to Spotify about the song and stated, "This is a song that found me, uh... through Eminem, actually, he found this song for us, and I did a song with him on his last record, and the... the friendship swap was that he would do it on mine, and I'm... I've always been a huge Eminem fan, and I think he's a brilliant lyricist. He makes me laugh. And... I'm stoked that he's on my album." [3] She further described it as "a fun song".

In a live chat with fans on the day of the album's release, P!nk was asked what it was like working with Eminem. She replied, "Eminem is a genius. He's brilliant. I think he's hilarious. I love him. I think he's just one of the most wonderful lyricists of all-time, and I'm just pretty stoked that whole thing went down." [4]

LyricsEdit

[P!nk]:
Here comes, comes the weekend
Hear it calling like a siren oh oh
We don't want no problems
We don't like them, keep it moving

Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh
Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh

I just wanna play, big city, holiday
So get out of my way
If you know what's better for you
I'm tearing up the night
Lipstick and leather tight
Not looking for a fight no oh oh

High heels and cherry wine
Not wasting any time
We're ticking like a bomb
About to blow oh oh

Here comes, comes the weekend
Hear it calling like a siren oh oh
We don't look for trouble,
Just enough to seeing double

Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh
Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh

Drink some pink champagne
I don't know you yet
But we'll forget so
Fuck what they say
Let the rum flow until it rains oh oh
I'm tearing up the night
Lipstick and leather tight
Not looking for a fight no oh oh

High heels and cherry wine
Not wasting any time
We're ticking like a bomb
About to blow oh oh

Here comes, comes the weekend
Hear it calling like a siren eh oh eh oh
We don't look for trouble,
Just enough to seeing double

Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh
Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh

[Eminem]:
Nothing high class in my glass
Only bottles of pop
My bottles are popped so when I pop up in the spot
I'm probably not gonna be wanting to pop bubbly or Ciroc
I'm not Puffy but I'ma run this city tonight
When I hit it, I might act like a frickin' idiot
Diddy mixed with a medieval knight, big city lights
Little indignity, hot diggity
This Biggie is gettin' me hype
I don't get some liquor, I'll hurt you
I'll knock a dick in the dirt, bickerin' worse
Than that bitch in that Snickers commercial
A mixture of Stiffler and Urkel
Hangin' from the light fixture
I hope you pricks are insured for this building
'Cause we're tearin' it down, security get out
The frickin' way, Jesus Chrysler LeBaron it's loud
I swear the only thing I hear is the sound
Of sirens going eeeeeh cause...

[P!nk]:
Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh
Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh

Oh oh

Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens
Here comes the weekend
Set off your sirens oh oh
