Eminem and Rihanna first teamed up on the 2010 song "Love the Way You Lie" before reuniting for "The Monster," which the rapper released at the end of October as the fourth single from The Marshall Mathers LP 2. In a Rolling Stone cover story this past fall, Eminem said that the new collaboration with Rihanna was "not necessarily a sequel, as much as it is a revisitation" to his past. "To me, it's more about the vice, and it's more about the nostalgia," he said.
In 2010, Eminem and Jay-Z performed two shows at Comerica Park as part of the Home & Home tour, in which the rappers performed two shows each in Detroit and New York.
