The video for Eminem and Lil Wayne's Haddaway-samping "No Love" premiered last night on Vevo. The third music video off Recovery, which Weezy filmed prior to his prison sentence, continues the public service announcement-like tone from Eminem's previous clips like "Not Afraid" (suicide) and "Love the Way You Lie" (domestic abuse.) This time around, Eminem focuses on teen bullying, with a subplot featuring a small teen who's the target of harassment from his fellow classmates (he finally fights back during the last chorus). The video comes during a week in which multiple gay teens have committed suicide, thrusting the issue of bullying into the national conversation.
"No Love" marks the third time that Wayne — whose I Am Not a Human Being dropped this week — and Eminem have co-starred in a music video ("Forever" and the Rebirth highlight "Drop the World" were the first two instances). The single, which comes on the heels of "Love the Way You Lie" topping the Hot 100, will hit radio on October 5th.
