Before 2013 comes to a close, a few remaining pieces of music business need to be wrapped up. That includes the release of one of the most anticipated music videos of the year, "The Monster" by Eminem. The track features Rihanna.
An almost one-minute trailer for the video has been released online. The video features Eminem and Rihanna in a dark therapy session. Rihanna looks amazing in the video, wearing a black dress. Eminem is watching a video that is playing his career highlights, including his very public battle with addiction.
The video ends with two military grade guards watching what appears to be a caged monster.
The hype around this video is off the charts. The single became an instant number one for Eminem off of his latest album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
Eminem and Rihanna have a become a match made in musical heaven. Their ability to play off each other musically, has translated into successful singles. Both artists bring a very dark tone to their performances, which brings out a raw emotion. Capturing this emotional and dark song on film will be a challenge, but this teaser proves that this has been done right.
The last time Eminem and Rihanna teamed up for a music video was "Love The Way You Lie," which set YouTube records.
