I am not a fan of rap music at all. But this song gripped me from the start.
After watching the Video I think we are looking at the next Grammy Awards Winner.
Rihanna adds great strength to the video, it is about domestic violence and uncontrolled feelings. Eminem has a troubled background but so too has Rihanna and together they add strength to the subject matter.
At the same time the porduction value of the video is great, it is nothing short of a short story. Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan both have a strong presence on screen and convey the troubles of a torn relationship very well, I daresay it is among their best performance ever.
As for the lyrics, it could be argued that rap at is best is the strongest form of modern poetry. More so since it doesn't carry the song - that is Rihanna's line as is normal with rap music.
The sum of the whole is near perfect and I suspect that we are looking at the next Grammy Awards best Music Video Winner.
