Apple’s Zane Lowe teases first Beats 1 interview with Eminem

According to an image that former BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe shared on Instagram and Twitter, Beats 1—Apple’s new 24/7 Internet radio—will interview hip-hop artist and music producer Eminem as its first guest. Lowe is one of the there celebrity DJs on Beats 1. Lowe will be providing live radio programming from Los Angeles, with a little help from Ebro Darden in New York and Julie Adenoma in London.

Given Eminem’s close relationship with Dr. Dre — who now works at Apple following the company’s Beats acquisition — it’s not too surprising he is one of Apple Music’s first guests. But this isn’t the first time Lowe has interviewed the rap star.

Eminem was also a guest on Lowe’s show at Radio 1, along with other high-profile artists like Kanye West, Jay Z, Chris Martin of Coldplay, and Paul McCartney. Interviews are likely to become a big part of Beats 1, and will help separate it from other internet radio services that just stream music.

As per Nielsen SoundScan, Eminem was the second-bestselling male artist as of June 2014, the sixth-bestselling artist in the United States and the bestselling hip-hop artist, with sales of 45,160,000 albums and 31 million digital singles.
