[artist id=”1940303″]Rihanna[/artist] and [artist id=”502642″]Eminem[/artist] are joining forces to shoot a music video for their hit song, “Love the Way You Lie,” this week, director Joseph Kahn confirmed on his Twitter.
“Got off a call. Emergency music video. Gonna write and turn in a treatment in three hours to shoot asap,” wrote Kahn, who has helmed other clips for Eminem, as well as Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson and Lady Gaga. “Video is gonna happen. Lots of work to do now. Did I say three hours? I f—ing lied. Finished and sent. 45 minutes. FTW. Video is awarded. Starts shooting Tuesday. Eminem & Rihanna. Off we go!”
The pair performed “Love the Way You Lie,” off of Eminem’s already-platinum Recovery, live together at Activision’s E3 party last month.
“It’s really beautiful, and it really stands out,” Rihanna has said about the duet. “It’s a really unique record. I’m really excited about it.”
Kahn directed Eminem’s videos for “Without Me” and “We Made You.” For 2002’s “Without Me,” he won a Grammy, and VMAs for Video of the Year and Best Direction. And while “Love the Way You Lie” will mark the first time he’s worked with Rihanna, he directed two of her ex Chris Brown’s recent videos , “Crawl” and “I Can Transform Ya.”
