The next single which is set to drop off Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP2″ is “The Monster” which is scheduled to hit the public November 5.
This single will feature Rihanna. Eminem and Rihanna are no strangers when it comes to working together. They have teamed up on “Love the Way You Lie,” Love the Way You Lie 2,” and “Numb.”
Rihanna spoke with Complex about how she felt while working with Eminem on past collaborations.
“The moment I worked with him on ‘Love the Way You Lie,’ I wanted to work with him again, and we did ‘Love the Way You Lie Part 2,'” Rihanna said. “And then I wanted to work with him again. I just love working with Eminem. He’s just one of my favorite rappers, and his lyrics—he’s a true poet, and I enjoy that about him. For this song, I needed someone with not only his skill, but his personality. And I needed someone who really understands the perspective and the metaphor in the song of going numb and being numb to everything around and to say, ‘Fuck you.’ Eminem is definitely the perfect guy for that.”
Detroit, Michigan radio station 98.7 reports that they are scheduled to premiere the single “The Monster” October 28.
