No, there isn’t going to be an Eminem and Rihanna collaboration after all

An image of Rihanna's 'R' mashed up with Eminem's 'E' sparked speculation

A rumoured collaboration between Eminem and Rihanna has been denied by the former’s marketing firm after an Instagram post confused fans.

An image shared on the Instagram stories of Burn It Down Group last week showed Rihanna’s ‘R’ logo used on her ‘Rated R’ album cover combined with Eminem’s backwards ‘E’, fuelling the rumour mill that a collaboration was on the cards.


It turns out that a representative for the team was simply “reliving the good times” from Eminem and Rihanna’s co-headlining 2014 ‘Monster Tour’ by posting images from the concerts.

“There is no new song,” Burn It Down agency wrote on a fresh Instagram story shared yesterday (July 27). “I will do a better job of respecting my power and be more detailed to you guys, the fans. Never want to lead you guys astray.”

Eminem and Rihanna have collaborated before on 2010’s US number one single ‘Love The Way You Lie’, ‘Numb’ from Rihanna’s 2012 album ‘Unapologetic’, and ‘The Monster’ from ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’.

In January Eminem released ‘Music To Be Murdered By’, his second surprise album following 2018’s ‘Kamikaze’.

Last month, meanwhile, he teased 10th anniversary plans for ‘Love The Way You Lie”s parent album ‘Recovery’.


His most recent release came earlier this month in the form of ‘The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady’, a collaboration with Kid Cudi announced via the latter’s young daughter Vada.

Last November, meanwhile, a leaked track from 2011 appeared to see Eminem siding with Chris Brown after his assault of Rihanna. The lyrics were changed before its release.
