Rihanna ”connected” with Eminem”s song on abusive relationship

Posted on: July 28, 2010

R&B singer Rihanna has revealed that she agreed to duet with Eminem on his new track as she could relate to the song”s references to an abusive relationship.

The ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker lends her vocals for Eminem’s new track ‘Love The Way You Lie’ which focuses on domestic violence.

It features the lyrics, ‘I laid hands on her/I”ll never stoop so low again/I guess I don”t know my own strength.’

Rihanna admitted she instantly ‘understood’ the song because of her experiences with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown – who famously attacked the singer in 2009.

“It”s something that, you know, we”ve both experienced… on different sides, different ends of the table,” the Daily Star quoted Rihanna as telling Access Hollywood.

“He (Eminem) pretty much just broke down the cycle of domestic violence and it”s something that people don”t have a lot of insight on.

“I knew if he sent me a record there must be something to it. It couldn”t just be, ”Oh, Duh! She was in that relationship so we have to get her.” The lyrics were so deep, so beautiful and intense. It”s something that I understood, something I connected with,” she added.
