Eminem previously collaborated with voice-for-hire Sia on The Marshall Mathers LP 2 bonus track “Beautiful Pain”. That song wasn’t particularly memorable, so the unlikely duo have something to prove with their contribution to The Equalizer soundtrack — a new action movie starring Denzel Washington, which is based on the similarly-titled TV show.
You can hear a snippet of the song in the film’s trailer. “Afraid I will never find a way out, so here I am and I will not run,” sings Sia in her typically throaty tone while Em raps: “it’s too late to start over, this is the only thing, only thing I know.” The collab sounds a little underwhelming but it’s hard to judge when the song is interspersed between dialogue. Watch the preview after the jump.
