Eminem + Rihanna Release ‘The Monster’ [VIDEO]
The much anticipated video for Eminem and Rihanna’s ‘The Monster’ was finally revealed and if you’re a fan of the “old school” Eminem, get ready to reminisce. The video features Rihanna as Doctor Ri-Ri to a Marshall Mathers who slips into a hypnotizing journey that looks back on his entire career.
We see clips from ’8 Mile’ along with visions of Dr. Dre, Elton John and many more moments that have defined Eminem’s storied career. At one point, Em finally comes face to face with his former drug-addicted self, which finally gives us a little clarity about that “monster” that’s been under his bed and in his head.
As to how the #1 hit record came together, Eminem says that he knew Rihanna would be the perfect fit.

I think it’s safe to say, both Em and Rihanna have found a chemistry together.
And that chemistry really, really works.
