    "Love The Way You Lie (Feat. Rihanna)" is a track written by Alex da Kid, and recorded for Eminem's well timed and enjoyable record Recovery. As a single, it was one of the biggest songs of the year. No duh, but there's more! Following the motif of his B.O.B. helmed song "Aeroplanes" (with a sequel that also featured Eminem), Alex da Kid felt it appropriate to give "Lie" a second version for the Rihanna record due out in a few weeks. It leaked today, and hoooooooo boy! Check it out after the jump.

    Eminem is a crazy person.

    Rihanna had her reservations about doing this:

    "When I first heard the idea about doing a part two, I was just completely against it," she revealed to MTV News. "I just felt like you couldn't beat the original. There's no way you can outdo that, so why compete with it?" ... We heard a broken-down version that was stripped down, just piano ... that's going to be a bonus on iTunes," she said. "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."
