It will be many more years before Eminem and Rihanna become Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, but with collaborations like this, both will be there.
When they first joined forces on the hit “Love the Way You Lie” from Eminem’s Recovery album, fans were smitten. Their latest duet is no less electric.
The two music superstars have come together again this week for a "Monster" music video that is as dark and disturbing as it is compelling and catchy:
In the video, Rihanna and Eminem lament their relationships with their own personal demons in a violent, sexy and mesmerizing new music video.
It fits the overall tone of Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2 album well, as the rapper looks freaked out and starts acting out, frightened at who he is.
The screen fills with images of the oft-troubled rapper getting violent, popping pills, and hanging out with his daughter, Hailie Scott, when she was little.
As he confronts his “monsters,” Rihanna plays an equally messed-up therapist who's tasked with helping him out. It only gets crazier from there.
Watch it above and see what transpires ... it's interesting to say the least!
