Eminem and Rihanna first joined forces on the song "Love the Way You Lie," which went on to become a worldwide success in 2010. For his new album "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," he enlists Rihanna once again for a feature.
While "Love the Way You Lie" was more an intense ballad, "The Monster" is more of a playful midtempo track. Em channels his Marshall Mathers persona with a looser rap flow and some comical rhymes. Rihanna is solely featured on the chorus when she sings, "I'm friends with a monster that is under my bed / Get along with the voices inside of my head." The two artists wear crazy well on the kooky "The Monster."
Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers 2 LP" will be released on November 5. Rihanna is currently promoting her "Unapologetic" album with the single "Right Now."
