And that just happened to be one of the world’s most successful hip-hop artists: Eminem. Pink and Eminem had previously worked together on the rapper’s Recovery album track “Won’t Back Down” in 2010. Even so, though, the singer was still nervous about approaching the hip-hop star to discuss the possibility of collaborating again.
Indeed, Pink would later tell Entertainment Weekly that she had only felt brave enough to ask him about a guest appearance after she had consumed copious amounts of alcohol. In particular, after she had been working – and drinking – with Max Martin in the studio, the star decided to email Eminem at home alongside a few more glasses of wine. “This is why they call it liquid courage,” she joked.
