Eminem Tricks Fans With New Album Announcement on April Fools Day

Eminem fans thought they were in for a treat with his new album announcement until the rug was snatched from under their feet.

Eminem Hits Fans With April Fools’ Day Prank

On Monday morning (April 1), Eminem shared an album announcement trailer via X, formerly known as Twitter, which contained tweets from fans begging and pleading for Em to unleash a new album. It initially appeared that Slim Shady supporters were going to get what they’ve been asking for. However, that was until it was revealed that the album trailer was actually for Em’s Infinite album, which arrived back in 1996.

The narrator said in the visual: “The highly anticipated next studio album goes back to where it all started. Infinite but now it’s even more infinite. Out today.”

Considering today is April Fools’ Day, Eminem‘s Stans unfortunately fell victim to the joke, but it’s unclear if they’re actually laughing.
