Rihanna and Eminem’s ‘Love the Way You Lie Part 2′ Leaks
Eminem and Rihanna‘s sequel to their hit single ‘Love the Way You Lie’ leaked today, two weeks before Rihanna’s highly-anticipated fifth album, ‘Loud,’ hits shelves.Though reportedly unfinished, ‘Love the Way You Lie Part 2,’ continues their volatile narrative of an abusive relationship, this time with more singing from Rihanna, who refers to herself as a masochist for her role in the torturous affair.
Em reprises his appearance on the original version, from his platinum-selling comeback album, ‘Recovery,’ defending his side of the mutually debilitating relationship. “Try and touch me so I scream at you not to touch me,” he raps. “Run out the room and I’ll follow you like a lost puppy/ Baby, without you I’m nothing/ I’m so lost/ Hug me and then tell me how ugly I am/ But that you’ll always love me.”
Though the unlikely pairing has proved both commercially and critically successful, Rihanna initially said that she had concerns about recording a sequel, but was so impressed by Em’s “crazy verse,” that she had no choice. “Something is wrong with Eminem,” she told MTV. “He has so much in his mind that I almost feel lucky for him that he has music … music is such a great release for him. He’s one of my favorite artists.”
