Eminem ft. Rihanna - The Monster

Posted 2 years ago
Frequency & Symbolic One

In 2010, Eminem recruited Rihanna to assist him on Love the Way You Lie.  The record was an absolute smash, entering the US Billboard Hot 100 chart at #2 and eventually spending seven weeks at #1. It also not-too-shabbily debuted at #1 on the US Digital Songs chart, selling a solid-day-at-the-office 338,000 copies.  Three years later, the duo look to repeat history with The Monster, a song whose title accurately describes its massive potential.  The track, produced by Frequency and Symbolic One, is the most instantly likable among Slim’s pre-MMLP2 single releases, thanks to the Jon Bellion-penned hook, and should offer radio programmers across multiple formats an easy add into rotation.  So, will The Monster outperform previous singles Rap God and Berzerk? Will it lead to a strong first week for Mathers? Find out when The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is released on November 5.
