Bhasker told MTV News he has one artist at the top of his musical bucket list: Eminem.
“I would love to work with Eminem, he’s one of the most brilliant writers and vocalists that we have,” he said of the reclusive MC, whose follow-up to 2010’s hit Recovery is reportedly slated for a post-Memorial Day release. Bhasker is putting the finishing touches on his solo debut, which tackles the story of an Iraq War soldier’s experience, and he said his aim is to find other things to write about besides, well, love.
“He’s [Eminem] another guy who has found other subjects to write about,” Bhasker said. So far, the phone hasn’t rung, but that doesn’t mean Bhasker is sitting around at his cozy Mar Vista, California, home studio waiting for work.
