The teaser shows Eminem and Blaine discuss collaborating during a FaceTime call, with Eminem asking Blaine, "What I was wondering is like, how far can we go with this magic? Like, can we do a stunt or something?"

Blaine responds with, "You mean something like this?" before downing a glass of wine and biting into the glass.

"Well, for my last trick, I'mma make my career disappear," Eminem replies before hanging up abruptly.

"Houdini" is the lead single from Eminem's forthcoming 12th studio album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce), a reference to his alter ego "Slim Shady."

Eminem teased the album in April with a clip from the fake true-crime show Detroit Murder Files featuring 50 Cent.

The rapper released his most recent album, Music to Be Murdered By, in January 2020.
