"Love the Way You Lie" is a song recorded by American rapper Eminem with
Barbadian singer Rihanna, from Eminem's seventh studio album Recovery
(2010). Skylar Grey and Alex da Kid collaborated on a demo of the song,
which compares Grey's life in the music industry with an abusive
romantic relationship. Eminem rewrote the song and asked Rihanna to sing
the chorus, adding his own verses. The song describes two lovers in a
dangerous love–hate relationship who refuse to separate. Backed by
guitar, piano and violin, the track is a midtempo hip hop ballad with a
pop refrain, recorded in Ferndale, Michigan, and Dublin, Ireland. It was
released as the second single from Recovery in 2010. Critics praised its
melody but were divided over its representation of domestic violence.
Its accompanying music video, directed by Joseph Kahn, stars Dominic
Monaghan and Megan Fox in a violent relationship, and shows Eminem and
Rihanna in front of a burning house. Critics listed "Love the Way You
Lie" as one of the best of the year. Eminem's best-selling single, it
received several awards and five Grammy nominations.
