[artist id="502642"]Eminem[/artist] is no Vincent Chase, but the rapper — sans entourage, save for a security team — recently shot a video for “Space Bound” that co-stars porn actress-turned-thespian [url id="http://www.mtv.com/photos/eminems-space-bound-video-shoot/1658321/5706732/photo.jhtml"]Sasha Grey[/url]. The latest clip for a track from the Detroit MC’s Grammy-winning comeback album, Recovery, was directed by Joseph Kahn and was shot over three days in Los Angeles.

“Space Bound” follows the Kahn-helmed “Love the Way You Lie” video, and like that Rihanna-assisted visual, this one also features an intense love story line.
Em and Grey — who appeared on HBO’s “Entourage” last season as the love interest of lead character Chase (portrayed by Adrian Grenier) — play a pair of star-crossed lovers, which relates to the lyrics of the Jim Jonsin-produced song.
“We touch, I feel a rush,” Em raps on the track. “We clutch, it isn’t much/ But it’s enough to make me wonder what’s in store for us/ It’s lust/ It’s torturous/ You must be a sorceress/ ‘Cause you just did the impossible/ Gained my trust/ Don’t play games, it’ll be dangerous/ If you f— me over/ ‘Cause if I get burnt/ I’ma show ya what it’s like to hurt/ ‘Cause I’ve been treated like dirt before ya/ And love is ‘evol,’ spell it backwards, I’ll show ya.”
Jonsin, who also has produced songs by Beyoncé, Lil Wayne and others, said his collaboration with Eminem was unlike any of the Detroit MC’s previous tracks.
“We touched on something that I haven’t done anything like that before,” Jonsin told MTV News last year. “It’s unique in a way for myself. It’s a place I’ve been wanting to go, and I’m so happy he allowed it to go down. He played a huge part in the record. Without him on it, it’s not the same. I don’t wanna give up too much about what it is and what direction.”
The video is the fourth overall clip from Recovery, following “Not Afraid,” “Love the Way You Lie” and “No Love.”
As of press time, no date has been set for the premiere of “Space Bound.”
