Jelly Roll Reflects on Eminem Duet: ‘Coolest Moment’ of My Career

When I think about coolest moments of my career, right now at the top, there has to be this thing that I got to go sing with Eminem in Detroit, I got to sing ‘Sing for the Moment’ with him, which is a record where he sampled Steven Tyler. I mean, just what an incredible night and I got to go do it in Detroit. It was unreal.

The performance, recorded on June 6, featured Jelly Roll harmonizing parts of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” alongside Eminem, who also treated the audience to his latest single “Houdini” during the event.

According to Jelly Roll, the concept for the duet was initiated by Eminem himself. Jelly Roll recalled:

Em reached out, his team reached out and said, ‘Would you be interested in doing this since he was already there doing the secret tribute? I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was a joke until I met Eminem himself … As soon as I met Eminem, it was like the coolest moment ever, man.
