It is not the first time that the two singers appear together on stage, since, last November, performed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The union of the two music stars in Detroit was special because it is the city where the rapper grew up. As a result of this appearance, many fans have speculated on social networks with a possible collaboration.
fan since childhood
The singer-songwriter’s admiration for rap and, especially, Eminem, goes back a long way. In 2015, Ed Sheeran admitted during a speech to the American Institute for Stuttering that listening to the rapper’s songs had helped him cure his stuttering as a child. The British soloist claimed that when he was a child his uncle Jim told the future pop star’s father about him that “Eminem will be the new Bob Dylan”. “My father bought me the album ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ when I was 9 years old without knowing what was in it and I ended up learning every word”.
Eminem has not been the only luxury guest at the concerts of ed sheeran tour. Shawn Mendes appeared during performances in canada from the British a month ago.
