Eminem and Rihanna have teamed up again! The duo has released a part two of their wildly successful hit, â€œLove the Way You Lie.â€ The song will be featured on Rihannaâ€™s new album, â€œLoud.â€ The album wonâ€™t be released until November 16th, but â€œLove the Way You Lie (Part II)â€ has already leaked online. Click the video below to hear the song.
While the chorus of the song is the same as the first, â€œLove the Way You Lie,â€ this version seems to examine life through Rihannaâ€™s eyes. Well, maybe not Rihannaâ€™s eyes per se, but the female half of the â€œLove the Way You Lieâ€ couple.Â Where Eminem’s version was angry and bitter, Rihanna’s is sad and remorseful.Â 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, â€œOn the first page of our story, the future seems so bright.â€ Things quickly go downhill. She explains that â€œthis thing turned out so evil, I donâ€™t know why Iâ€™m still surprised.â€ She shows that she still seems to be willing to make things work when she sings, â€œBut youâ€™ll always be my hero, even though you lost your mind.â€ 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? Itâ€™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 â€œLove the Way You Lie (Part Two).â€
