In September, Eminem duetted with Pink on the track 'Here Comes The Weekend', taken from the Pink's new album 'The Truth About Love'.
Speaking about how she and the rapper arranged the collaboration, Pink said: "He said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' 'Fuck yeah!' I said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' and he said, 'Fuck yeah!' Handshake. Nothing signed. Done."
