Love the Way You Lie” is a song performed by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna & American rapper Eminem. It is also the second single by American rapper Eminem from his seventh studio album, Recovery.

The single features vocals from Barbadian R&B singer Rihanna and is produced by Alex da Kid & Makeba Riddick.

Rihanna’s rendition where she takes lead vocals, from her album Loud, as you all know hit #1 everywhere – is still going strong as a single.

Skylar Grey originally recorded the demo of which she co-wrote herself – now The Hype Factor asks this: Who’s version is better – Rihanna or Skylar Grey’s?

Last month Idolator talked to “Love The Way You Lie” producer Alex Da Kid, who had this to say about Skylar:

“She’s signed to my production company and I’m just in the middle of negotiating a label situation through a major record company. We figure probably by January or February I’ll make it concrete and we’ll go from there. To me she’s an amazing artist. She plays like nine or ten instruments. She writes amazing songs. She’s the real deal.”

“Love The Way You Lie” is currently nominated for a total of five Grammys, including Record and Song of the year, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
