Looks like Eminem saw something special in MTV’s Sway Calloway, because he just scored a new morning program on Eminem’s sirius station Shade 45. Sway will be hosting the spankin’ new show called, “Sway In The Morning”, which will air Monday through Friday at 8-12 PM EST. The show begins in July.
Eminem on the new show:
“I got my start on radio with Sway and so it only makes sense for things to come full-circle and have him join the family at Shade 45. I’m looking forward to the honor of Sway making mornings better on Shade 45 on Sirius XM for a long time to come.”
Sway on his new job:
“I’m constantly striving to be a part of winning teams and movements and Shade 45 on Sirius XM embodies this spirit,” he said in the same release. “We plan to tap into hip-hop and pop culture, global and domestic news and classic and groundbreaking new music. This is truly a labor of passion for me with two of the best at what they do, Eminem and Paul Rosenberg. We plan to make more history!”

A few months back David Guetta shared a snippet of this track while performing abroad. Today, the dance music king premieres the new video for “Where Them Girls At” featuring Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida. Apparently this tune will be featured on Guetta’s new album, Nothing But The Beat.
