If you’re a hip-hop artist and you want a good commercial, yet credible song that’s going to blow up around the world, then Rihanna’s your girl. Miss Fenty has lent her vocals to some of hip-hops heavyweights, from Jay-Z, to Kanye West, to T.I. And each song has exposed each rapper to a wider pop crowd, yet maintaining a credible sound that also appeals to their hardcore hip-hop fans.
Now RiRi has teamed up with arguably the biggest rapper of our generation, Eminem. I love Em and although his album has outsold every other rap album this year, he hasn’t had a defining hit single of late. Remember how iconic “Stan” was, or the impact that “My Name Is” and “The Real Slim Shady” had on contemporary popular culture? None of his recent singles have had that type of impact. But I think that may be about to change with his new single “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna. The song and lyrics are so deep and powerful. I think it could have the same impact and significance as “Stan” did ten years ago.
These sizzling pics of Rihanna are from the video set. The video also has a cameo from sexy Actress Megan Fox and will reportedly air sometime this week. I think this one is going to be a BIG one. I can’t wait to see it.
Blast From The Past
Bellow is the video of “Stan” – hopefully this new video can be as good as this. Well it’s near enough impossible for it to be as good as this, but if it’s half as good as this, then it will be amazing. For me this is Eminem at his BEST. Simply AMAZING.
