Eminem's "Not Afraid" music video has been out for full viewing pleasure. The Slim Shady is seen standing on the rooftop of a skyscraper, looking down the street. In one point, he is seen throwing himself from the edge of a destroyed road.
"The overall concept is basically just being in a dark place and trying to get to the light," Eminem previously said in an interview with Skyrock FM in Paris. The music video is directed by Rich Lee and was partly filmed on the streets of Newark, New Jersey in early May.
"Not Afraid" is the lead single of Eminem's upcoming effort "Recovery" which is slated to hit the U.S. market on June 22. It debuted atop Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs Chart, scoring the biggest sales week for a digital track this calendar year with 380,000 first-week digital download.
