The newest single from Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2 gets a video today. In it, Rihanna, who’s featured on the track, plays doctor, trying to decode the mental maze that is the Detroit rapper’s cognitive history. We’re talking about ”The Monster,” a song that tries to re-create the magic of the power duo’s insanely popular, 2010 hit “Love the Way You Lie.”
Images from the past flash on a screen before Eminem’s face, he rides a creepy elevator, there’s a strong emphasis on his 2001 Grammy performance with Elton John… There’s a happy ending, though. At least by Eminem standards.
Watch “The Monster” below.
