The second single off 'MMLP2' album features the Detroit MC rapping about how he can't deal with his own fame.
Eminem's collaboration with Rihanna, "The Monster", has arrived online. Premiered on SiriusXM's Shade 45 on Monday, October 28, the new track is set to be featured in the rapper's "MMLP2" that is set to be released on November 5.
The song opens with Rihanna singing about herself dealing with something that other people don't think exist. "I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed/ Get along with the voices inside of my head/ You trying to save me, stop holding your breath/ And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy," she croons.
Eminem, once again, shows the world that he's still uncomfortable with his own fame. "I wanted the fame but not the cover of Newsweek/ Oh well, guess beggers can't be choosy," Em raps, making a reference to his October 2000 magazine cover.
"The Monster" has been confirmed as the second cut off "MMLP2". The new single is not the first collaboration between Eminem and Rihanna. Both artists previously teamed up for a massively successful 2010 single, "Love the Way You Lie", which hit No. 1 on Billboard 100.
The two artists later reunited for the second part of the track, "Love the Way You Lie (Part II)". They worked together again for "Numb", which was recorded for Rihanna's "Unapologetic".
