Skylar Grey :: Post II – Upcoming “Love The Way You Lie” Video
—- —- —- —-
So its been a while since “Love The Way You Lie” officially hit iTunes, airwaves, and CD shelves everywhere.
While Skylar Grey (who wrote Rihanna’s hook in LTWYL) has been tucked away secretly working on her own material, LTWYL has been keeping busy.
After initially being released on Eminem’s Recovery LP, LTWYL quickly topped the iTunes and Rhapsody charts at # 1, and became the best-selling track off of the album (338,000 in first-week downloads, 314,000 the following week).
Since then, the track has enjoyed its chart success, including #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 (below photo courtesy of Alex Da Kid).
LTWYL has also reached Number 1 in Australia (in both the Top 40 Singles and Top 50 Digital Tracks charts, respectively), been picked by E! Entertainment’s Clinton Sparks as one of his Get Familiar!: Top 5 tracks, and has been hailed by DrJays.com’s Chris Yuscavage as possibly Eminem’s “most important song ever”.
Overall, the track has been making quite a splash on the music scene, finally being released as an official non-U.S. single on June 21st.
Now there’s news of a Joseph Kahn directed music video being filmed on the 20th of July (today), with a still unknown release date (I’ll be posting the video as soon as it’s available).
