Today is the day Eminem returns! The Detroit rapper's highly anticipated album, Revival, is finally here!

The star-studded record features a bit of a new, more mature Slim Shady. Em's made a smooth transition from arrogant, crass, and murderous to a more self-deprecating, introspective, and politically aware rap icon. The first single off the album, "Walk on Water" featuring Beyoncé, welcomes fans into Eminem's mind, as he lists out all of the reasons why he is not the rap god many fans have built him up to be.

Meanwhile, with the release of Revival, Em also dropped a new single this morning. The latest track off the album is called "River" and features pop sensation Ed Sheeran. Take a listen.        

Sheeran, who co-wrote the track, says working with Eminem was a highlight of his young career. He also shared the story of how the collaboration came together -- at actor Russell Crowe's house.

Sheeran also shared this candid photo on his Instagram earlier this week.
