Eminem and Rihanna 'Love the Way You Lie'

Eminem sings about being part of an abusive relationship in his new track "Love the Way You Lie" featuring Rihanna. As soon as the song leaked fans picked up on the tune and now it's a summer anthem!

The song leaked off of Eminem's album Recovery which was release on July 22. In "Love the Way You Lie," rather than using hateful words against his ex-girlfriend, Eminem is apologetic. In the beginning of the song, he describes the relationship as a roller coaster; he goes on to describe what happens when the anger from an argument mounts and he snaps.

He says "I laid hands on her, I'll never stoop so low again." Eminem admits to abusing his former wife and acknowledges that what he did was wrong.

With such truthful words, fans connected with Eminem on this single and appreciate his frankness. With the added chorus by Rihanna, this collaboration has been one of the greatest this year and will definitely be one that will be remembered.

As Eminem sings about being the abuser, Rihanna knows a thing or two about being the victim of domestic violence. The topic hits very close to home for Rihanna because she was subjected to abuse from her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The video is as real is the tune's lyrics: Rihanna stands in front of a burning house donning her new, signatire red hair. Eminem on the other hand is seen in an open field with blue skies.

Transfomers hottie Megan Fox and Lost actor Dominic Monaghan play the troubled couple that go from physically fighting to a steamy make-out scene. The video, despite being graphic and rough, has an addictive quality to it. Once you start watching the it, you can't take your eyes away.

With such an impressive song, the video follows through! Check out the video for "Love the Way You Lie" and let us know what you think.
