Those yearning to see Eminem and Rihanna’s on-screen chemistry won’t have to wait much longer. The highly-anticipated video for the superstars’ No. 1 collaboration has a premiere date.
The clip for “Love the Way You Lie,” the second single from Eminem’s chart-topping album Recovery, will debut Thursday night (Aug. 5) on MTV. “Got the new @Eminem video featuring Rihanna,” tweeted the MTV Jams account. “Very cinematic…Good shit! We’re premiering it too. This has been a good season for videos.”
Director Joseph Kahn finished editing the video on Monday and had one request of his viewers. “Watch it fully streamed, volume turned up, quiet room, turn off your phone. Thanks,” he wrote on Twitter.
In addition to Eminem and Rihanna, the blockbuster video also stars Hollywood hotshots Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan.
UPDATE: The video will premiere on MTV and VEVO on Thursday, August 5, at 9 p.m. EDT.
