Rap-Up TV: Alex Da Kid Talks ‘Love the Way You Lie (Part II)’

One of the last songs to make Rihanna’s new album Loud was “Love the Way You Lie (Part II),” the follow-up to her No. 1 hit with Eminem from Recovery. The producer behind the original and sequel, Alex Da Kid, tells Rap-Up TV how the last-minute addition came to be, how he got Eminem involved again, and the tough task of working with the Bajan babe. “She’s great, she’s a pop ion,” says Alex. “It’s not like I have to go to a job where I hate what I do.”
