Music Video: Eminem, We Made You

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Song: We Made You
Artist: Eminem
Album: Relapse
Label: Shady / Aftermath / Interscope
Producer: Dr. Dre
Notes: 1st single from LP
Analysis: Interesting marketing technique to release your first single for consumption the same day as the music video. Usually there is some time for the lead single to marinate with the public before the visuals are unveiled, but the Interscope team decided that giving both to the fans on the same day is the way to go. It’s a smart tactic, but only if the material is good. The video for ‘We Made You’ is again, the typical video from Em, dressing up as random celebrities in goofy scenarios to go with the weak lyrics. I’m actually glad that we got both of these on the same day, because the sooner this song gets played out, the sooner we get to the juicy stuff that has earned Eminem his crown as one of the best rappers alive. That is, if he still has it in him.
