Eminem and Rihanna have collaborated before, on 2010’s US number one single ‘Love The Way You Lie’, ‘Numb’ from Rihanna’s 2012 album ‘Unapologetic’, and ‘The Monster’ from ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’.
An unexpected new release from Eminem would be in keeping with the rapper’s recent trend of surprise albums. In January he released ‘Music To Be Murdered By’, his second surprise album following 2018’s ‘Kamikaze’.
Last month, meanwhile, he teased 10th anniversary plans for ‘Love The Way You Lie”s parent album ‘Recovery’.
His most recent release came earlier this month in the form of ‘The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady’, a collaboration with Kid Cudi announced via the latter’s young daughter Vada.
Last November, meanwhile, a leaked track from 2011 appeared to see Eminem siding with Chris Brown after his assault of Rihanna. The lyrics were changed before its release.
