So, after a month away, I have to deal with these two again?
single: “The Monster”
artist: Eminem featuring Rihanna
Does it even matter what this song sounds like? Putting Rihanna and Eminem together is as predictable as pairing chocolate and peanut butter. The most bankable, accessible singer and rapper (respectively) of the past decade meet again (after their first monster song, “Love The Way You Lie”) for another dark-ish collaboration that snaps and resounds in the usual way that their respective singles often do.
I like to think of these two as the Halloween version of Jay-Z and Beyonce. That gives me a giggle. It kind of illustrates the nature of their artistic compatibility, as well.
But mainly it gives me a giggle.
