Eminem is wishing fans an “Unhappy Valentine’s Day” this week.
On Monday (February 12), Em shared the first look at his new video for the Ed Sheeran-featuring Revival cut, “River.” The song’s lyrics deal with abortion, infidelity, and dysfunctional relationships — not exactly your lightest topics — and it looks like the video’s going to adopt a fittingly dramatic tone. In the 30-second clip, we see documentary-style footage of a woman screaming at Em. The stone-faced rapper later shows off his acting chops by dodging an interviewer who asks him, “What does love mean to you?”
“My personal life is not exactly a highlight reel,” Slim answers. The newly engaged Sheeran adds, “If you don’t have the trust element, you’re fucked.”
