We have been waiting for Eminem to collaborate with Rihanna ever since their 2010 smash hit ‘Love the Way You Lie.’ The wait is over!
The hip hop artist has released ‘The Monster,’ his fourth single from ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2′ album — this one featuring Rihanna. The frequency-produced song was definitely made for radio and we smell a hit.
The single premiered on Oct. 28, 2013 and was released as a promotional single with the album’s pre-order on iTunes the same day. It will be officially serviced to contemporary hit radio in the U.S. on Nov. 5, 2013.
This is Eminem’s eighth studio album. After a three year hiatus, the rapper premiered his lead single ‘Berzerk’ at the 2013 MTV VMA Video Music Awards on August 25. It peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100. He followed that up with singles two and three — ‘Survival’ and ‘Rap God’ on October 15.
The 41-year-old entertainer has thirteen Grammy Awards and has been praised for having “verbal energy and high quality lyrics.” MTV ranked him number nine on their list the The Greatest MCs of All Time.
