Eminem sought after P!nk for “Won’t Back Down”
HollywoodNews.com: Eminem’s latest album, “Recovery,” has only been out for a mere two days, but it’s projected to sell over 500,000 copies in it’s first week. One track on the album entitled “Won’t Back Down” features P!nk, but she wasn’t the original singer slated for the track.
DJ Khalil, who was the producer on the track told MTV, “He [Eminem] called me, and originally we had another vocalist, Liz Rodrigues, who is in my group.” He continued, “Originally she was on the song, but she was already on “25 to Life” and “Almost Famous. So, we were thinking, ‘Who else could we get for this record that would actually fit?'”
“When he brought up Pink, I thought she would kill it, she’d murder it. He set up the session in Malibu and we did the session and she was done in like 20 minutes. She nailed it in her way. I was kind of married to the original, but once I heard what she did and she put her stamp on it, it was like perfect, ’cause she just brought the attitude out.”
I think it’s safe to say that anything P!nk touches, sounds amazing.
