New Music | Rihanna Ft Eminem – Love The Way You Lie Part 2

After the hugely succesful Love The Way You Lie by Rihanna and Eminem, they’ve decided to go down the Empire State of Mind route with a broken down Part II. It’s pretty fantastic, its firmly on repeat on the iPod although im still unsure if it beats the original…? Initially a piano based broken down version of the track was recorded but then drums were added to give the song a new lease of life.


The song is produced by Alex Da Kid and will appear on Ri’s forthcoming album Loud, which drops in stores November 16th.
You can take a listen to the part II version below. What do you think….?

Chart News : Roll Deep debut at No.1 in singles chart!

Roll Deep have emerged the victors of a close chart battle with Eminem & Rihanna for this week’s number one single.

‘Green Light’ is the London-based grime collective’s second track to reach the top of the UK charts, after their previous release ‘Good Times’ achieved the same feat back in April.

‘Love The Way You Lie’, meanwhile, remains at two for a second consecutive week, despite initially outselling Roll Deep in the midweek charts.

Last week’s number one, ‘Club Can’t Handle Me’ by Flo Rida and David Guetta, slides two spots to three, with another former chart-topper, Ne-Yo’s ‘Beautiful Monster’, right behind them at five.

The Saturdays, who were once on course to top the charts with ‘Missing You’, settle into the lower half of the top 10 this week after falling four places from three to seven.

Elsewhere in the chart, Chase & Status rack up the second-highest new entry of the week with ‘Let You Go’ landing at 11, while Inna’s ‘Amazing’ is another high-charting new arrival at 14.

Just behind them is Tinchy Stryder’s ‘In My System’, which falls out of the top 10 on its second week of release, plummeting six spots to 16.
