After sharing a teaser clip over the weekend, Eminem on Monday released the full version for “The Monster.” The video shows Eminem as patient to Rihanna’s sexy therapist, watching career-spanning clips of himself in a dim hospital room as she takes notes. The dark video goes on to show Eminem trapped in a cage, wrapped in a straitjacket and falling from a tall building — all real moments from the rapper’s videos and career — until the present-day Eminem ultimately confronts his former self, then turns the other way.
“The Monster” has topped singles charts in 12 countries since its release in October. The track appears on “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” and marks Eminem’s latest collaboration with Rihanna, after the 2010 smash hit “Love the Way You Lie” and Rihanna’s 2012 song “Numb.”
Watch the new video for Eminem’s “The Monster” featuring Rihanna. The video is directed by Rich Lee.
