With the success of ‘Love the Way You Lie’ still prevalent on the Billboard charts, it looks like Eminem and Rihanna are looking to recapture that magic by recording a sequel to the hit duet. According to reports, RiRi will take the driver’s seat in ‘Love the Way You Lie, Part 2,’ offering up the female perspective of the song, which details a volatile relationship.

“Even angels have their wing cut schemes/ And you take that to new extremes/ But you will always be my hero, even though you lost your mind,” she sings.

The track, courtesy of by U.K. producer Alex Da Kid, who is also responsible for the original, will appear on Rihanna’s upcoming release ‘Loud.’ “The name of the album definitely reflects the attitude of it,” Rihanna said in an interview. “It’s really sassy and flirty, and it grabs your attention, and that’s why I enjoy it. It takes you through a really really interesting ride.”

If the success of the first ‘Love the Way You Lie’ is any indication as to how big its follow-up will be Rihanna and Em will have another hit on their hands. Aside from spending seven weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 charts, the song also debuted atop the Billboard Digital Song charts with 338,000 downloads in its first week and has since been certified 4x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Rihanna’s ‘Loud’ hits stores Nov. 16.
