Eminem Releases “The Monster” Music Video

By: Lindsay McCane - December 17, 2013

Since Eminem released his newest single The Monster in October, it has consistently topped the singles charts in 12 countries, and remains number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Over the weekend, Eminem and Rihanna released a teaser trailer for their latest song since their collaborations Love the Way You Lie in 2010, and Numb in 2012. The Monster appears on Eminem’s newest album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 that was released on November 5.

The video shows Rihanna and Eminem sitting in a dimly lit room with Eminem watching a video montage of himself and Rihanna taking notes, acting as his therapist. The video highlights the struggles in Eminem’s life as images of bottles of pills and his daughter Hailie as a young child stream across the screen, along with the words violence, family, insanity, fame, death, and addiction. The video then turns slightly darker showing Eminem trapped in a cage, wrapped in a straitjacket, and plunging from a building.
