Eminem and Ed Sheeran tease 'River' video
A post shared by (@eminem) on
Eminem has shared a first look at his upcoming video for “River”, which features the rapper and the newly engaged Ed Sheeran talking about love.
The rapper posted the video teaser to Instagram with the message “Unhappy Valentine’s day!” and revealed that the full video will in fact drop on Valentine’s Day, this Wednesday.
The love-themed teaser opens amidst a scene of domestic quarrel, seemingly centered around a pregnancy test, which fits with the song’s themes of abortion and infidelity. This footage is interspersed with interviews in which a woman is asked, “How would you describe your relationship with men?” and Eminem later responds to the question “What does love mean to you?”
“My personal life is not exactly a highlight reel,” responds the brooding rapper.
Sheeran appears at the end of the clip talking about the importance of “the trust element” in a relationship. JB
