A sequel is rarely as good as its original. Just ask The Matrix and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Still, Rihanna and Eminem have chosen to tempt fate, releasing a follow-up to their number-one smash, 'Love the Way You Lie.'
Love the Way You Lie, Part 2 In this version, Rihanna takes the lead, while the rapper sits back and gets his own verse near the end of the four-minute plus single. What prompted the female singer, who was initially opposed to the idea, to go along with part two?
'We heard a broken-down version that was stripped down, just piano... I fell in love with it. We recorded it, then we did another version to the stripped-down version with drums, then we did another version with drums and Eminem. And then that was the one that just felt really good.'
