This song was so popular when it first hit the airwaves and now I can’t believe it’s already two years old. Time really does fly, doesn’t it?
It describes an abusive relationship, specifically the one Eminem had with his ex-wife, Kim. Rihanna was asked to participate following the incident between her and Chris Brown. She could personally relate to the song and she liked the lyrics.
Love the Way You Lie was released as a single in August of 2010 from Eminem’s seventh album, Recovery. It was a HUGE hit all over the world taking the number one spot in the US, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Ireland, Italy, Russia, Spain, Sweden among many others. In fact, this is the first song I’ve written about that charted so highly in so many countries. It kind of makes you wonder about relationships…
In November 2010, Rihanna released Love the Way You Lie (Part Two) on her fifth studio album, Loud. Eminem also participates in the song. Listen to the second version HERE.
Above is the official music video. A short commercial may play before the video starts. You’ll see Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan as the main characters.
