Eminem and Rihanna have teamed up again! The duo has released a part two of their wildly successful hit, “Love the Way You Lie.” The song will be featured on Rihanna’s new album, “Loud.” The album won’t be released until November 16th, but “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)” has already leaked online. Click the video below to hear the song.

Well, maybe not Rihanna’s eyes per se, but the female half of the “Love the Way You Lie” couple.  Where Eminem’s version was angry and bitter, Rihanna’s is sad and remorseful.  The songs complement each other well.

“Love the Way You Lie (Part II)” starts out with Rihanna describing a happy beginning to their relationship. She sings, “On the first page of our story, the future seems so bright.” Things quickly go downhill. She explains that “this thing turned out so evil, I don’t know why I’m still surprised.” She shows that she still seems to be willing to make things work when she sings, “But you’ll always be my hero, even though you lost your mind.” You can read the full lyrics here.

Could this song possibly reflect the way Rihanna felt while she was involved in an abusive relationship with Chris Brown? It’s sad to consider that for this young beauty, the lyrics may have been written from the heart. Once again, Eminem and Rihanna have delivered an exceptional song with a powerful story line. Fans will be happy with “Love the Way You Lie (Part Two).”
