Eminem is not here for your Valentine’s Day. The Detroit rhymer delivers a dramatic video for his latest single “River” featuring Ed Sheeran, which is from his album, Revival.
Much like the song, the visual features Em in a volatile relationship with his lover, played by actress Sarah Ashley Toups.
"What does love mean to you?" a voice asks Em at the beginning the video. "My personal life is not exactly a highlight reel," Em responds back. Sheeran later adds, "If you don't have the trust element, you're fucked."
The clip then goes into a narrative Em meeting his love interest at a boxing gym and it quickly developing into a romance. However, the love and kisses soon turn into hate and anger when his lover tells him that she's pregnant.
Eminem is not happy with the baby news, which reflects in the song's lyrics, “With her in the womb, we can’t bring her in this world / Shoulda knew / To use protection before I bit into your forbidden fruit.”
We then see the couple fighting and screaming at each other. Later, Eminem is sitting in a chair contemplating his actions while debris falls down on him.
This is certainly an anti-Valentine's Day video. In fact, Em's team has been promoting the clip using the hashtag #UNHAPPYVDAY.
In the end, love hurts. Check out Eminem's new video above.
