Since the release of Recovery, one of Eminem‘s most successful albums to date, Slim Shady has been doing most of his work behind the scenes. Now that Shady is done mixing and producing Slaughterhouse’s upcoming album, he has said he is now focused on his next solo project. In honor of this announcement, Musical Breakdown brings you undoubtably the most successful track from Recovery.
“Love the Way Y0u Lie” struck a tone with many groups of people. The joint was definitely radio ready but it was the depth of the lyrics which made listeners put the track on repeat. Describing all the intricacies of an abusive relationship, Em’s storytelling is at its peak on “Love the Way You Lie”. This combined with the emotion set off by Rihanna’s introspective chorus made “Love the Way You Lie” Eminem’s best-selling single.
