It looks like fans can expect some cool things from Eminem pretty soon. This past Friday the “Monster”rapper announced via Twitter that he would be hitting the road for a “mini tour” with his frequent duet partner Rihanna in August. It will for sure be a can’t miss event. Seriously, if you sleep on this you could miss it. As of now the show only has three stops on the schedule. According to XXL Magazine the hit makers will be making stops in New York City, LA, and Em’s native Detroit.
Even though it’s quick, we’re betting it will make some big cash. Everything these two have done together so far has gotten big results. Their first pairing, which occurred in 2010 for Eminem’s hit “Love The Way You Lie”, topped Billbaord Hot 100 chart, the digital sales chart, and went number 1 on 28 global charts total. Naturally, that success inspired “Love The Way You Lie Part II.” This time the hit was for Rihanna, helping beef her hit album Loud up with artistic acclaim. It served as a great testament for the writing talent of its composer, Skylar Grey Part II essentially consisting of the lyrics from Grey’s original demo version, prior to selling the song to Eminem. Eminem did still make a short appearance on the track though, helping Rihanna’s art imitate real life events of her abusive relationship with then boyfriend Chris Brown.
Most recently, “Monster” has also gone to number 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, and came with its own “Inception” inspired music video that has been seen over 100 million times on You Tube. Not too shabby right? Will you be getting one of the few tickets?
