With a little over a week before Eminem releases his upcoming eighth studio album, there’s bound to be mixed expectations based on the tracks that have been heard so far. Looking to take the radio by storm for the second time, Eminem reveals his collaboration with Rihanna entitled “The Monster” just in time for Halloween to arrive, which the forceful pair will hope to follow in similar footsteps of “Love The Way You Lie” from back in 2010. Don’t forget that The Marshall Mathers LP 2 will be available on iTunes and in stores on November 5th.
We almost forgot about this song, up until a week ago when Rihanna started posting pictures of this video shoot on her Instagram page. Then our hormones perked up and awaited ratchetness. Just last night, she released the behind-the-scenes video for it, and we can specifically remember her saying that there would be twerking on water.
Although we didn’t see much of that, our girl RiRi channeled her inner FREAK for “Pour It Up,” bringing out the real King Of Diamonds skripper in her. The way she was dancing all up and down that pole shaking that ass, she can get our money. It’s one of the reasons why we love her in the first place. We’d join the illuminati just to get a taste.
Don’t believe us, though. Peep the GIFs for yourself.

There’s no doubt that alike every other one of Rihanna’s albums, Unapologetic was one of the most anticipated projects of last year. The songstress returns for a remix of standout track “Pour It Up,” which contains a star-studded line-up of Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Juicy J and T.I. The Mike Will Made-It-produced track seemed to be enough on its own, but the inclusion of a number of our favorite artists is certain to increase the much-deserved popularity.
Following the release of her seventh studio album “Unapologetic,” the Barbadian bombshell Rihanna immediately embarked on her “777 Tour” last November. The tours background was 7 days, 7 countries and 7 shows in promotion and celebration for the album. Stops included NYC, Toronto, London, Paris Mexico City, Stockholm, and Berlin.

Wow, what a week. We can definitively say this was the best week in 2013, thus far, in terms of videos released. We had real superstars up to bat, as they make a strong push for their Spring album release dates. Valentine’s Day might have sped up the process a bit, but when it was all said and done, the visuals were fire this week.
All bases are covered too, as James Blake hit us with the alternative flavor, Melanie Fiona showed us the wrong side of a love song and JT made a comeback.
Fresh off some GRAMMY wins last night, Rihanna decides to drop her video for her latest single “Stay.” As she explained it last night the video is simple and to the point. This was one of the standout tracks from RiRi’s Unapologetic album and should pick up more radio steam with this dope video. She is also in a bathtub for the majority of this one too so that is pretty awesome. Check it out above.

In the cover story interview she talks about her newly ignited relationship with Chris Brown and how different it is now than it used to be.
