Pink teased her Eminem collaboration a few weeks ago, saying that both artists were enthusiastic to work with each other, and now fans have a chance to hear the record in full. Listen to “Here Comes the Weekend.” The new release is the second track from Pink’s upcoming September 18 album The Truth About Love.
