Back in the day artists would use videos to help propel songs to #1; today however things are just opposite and such is the case with Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie.” According to the latest edition of Billboard magazine, the single has been #1 for 3 weeks straight and has sold over 300,000 copies. This is pretty remarkable considering the video is only just now being released. And despite how much of an Eminem fan I am not, it is no small feat that he doesn’t have to use imagery to sell his music. No doubt the video, co-starring “Transformers” actress Megan Fox and “Lord of the Rings” actor Dominic Monoghan, will help peak even more interest in a song that seems to have struck a chord with both the urban and pop audience.
