Today, 11 Years Ago, Eminem Released “Shake That,” featuring Nate Dogg



On this day, exactly 11 years ago (January 17, 2006), Eminem released the second single “Shake That,” featuring Nate Dogg, off Curtain Call: The Hits.  A remixed version of the song, with Nate Dogg, Obie Trice, and Bobby Creekwater, appears on Eminem Presents: The Re-Up (2006). Eminem does not have a verse on the remix, he does, however, still rap the intro to the song.


The single was released in early 2006 in the United States. It became a big hit, peaking at #6 on Billboard Hot 100 and it’s 10th commercially most successful single in his career. In the UK, the song was released as a download only single in April 2006, managing to peak at #28 on the UK Download Chart. The song also manged to peak at #59 in Sweden.


“Shake That” was nominated for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration” at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards, but it lost to Justin Timberlake and T.I.’s “My Love”. The song was certified Gold in Sweden, and Platinum in Denmark, both due to strong digital downloads.


The song received mixed reviews from music critics. Rolling Stone called this song a “Nate Dogg throwaway.”
