Review of Love The Way You Lie Ft. Rihanna Single by Eminem
Eminem brings Rihanna IN on chorus duties on this strange yet effective musical mix. Why strange, well the chorus is very country-esque but ya know what? It works. It tells the heartfelt story of a couple that have gone through hell with each other. They have abused, hit and fought with each other. Yet they tell of how they still love each other in this love hate relationship. It's the haunting chorus that really hits home. 'Jus gonna stand there and watch me burn but that's ok coz I like the way it hurts. Just gonna stand there and here me cry well that's ok coz I love the way that u lie'.
In places it sounds like a couple on the Jeremy Kyle show lol, but it's the hate, passion and love that it is delivered with that makes this song so believable. This could easily be as big as one of Ems biggest pop hits 'Stan'. It's the kind of song that is so good that even non fans of Eminem will download it.
