Eminem recently dropped his new single “The Monster” which features Rihanna. He talks about the collabo during an interview with SiriusXM radio station on Shade 45.
“The perception of the record, what it’s saying, I thought it would be a good idea to have her on it because I think people look at us like we’re both a little nuts” Eminem continues, “That’s one of the things that I was telling her in making the record: I think that people look at us a little crazy.”
Eminem chose Rihanna for the single and knew she would be perfect for the track.
“As soon as I got the beat I just heard her on it,” Eminem said. “I wanted to make sure that I had it finished first to be able to present to her, but once I had the rhymes done, I sent it to her…I had to send it to her because schedules were conflicting and sh– like that. Plus, the record it was kinda pulled together at the last minute. I sent it to her, she laid the hook, sent it back. She smashed it like she does always. It’s pretty incredible.”
