Eminem just dropped the teaser video for "River." The rapper collaborated with Ed Sheeran in the track.
The emotional 31-second clip opens with a woman being asked how she really feels about the rapper. The next scene shows a man and a woman fighting. The man pushes the woman to the ground. In the third scene from the teaser, an unnamed man is being interviewed about the woman that broke his heart.

Eminem also sits in front of the cameras for what looked like an interview, but it is still unclear whether or not this will be featured in the official music video for "River." The rapper takes a few seconds before he could answer the question, "What does love mean to you?"
He declares that his personal life is not necessarily a highlight reel before Sheeran is shown on screen. The 26-year-old singer briefly talks about "having the trust element" before the title of their collaboration is shown on screen.
Ed Sheeran Talks About Eminem Collaboration
Eminem was the one who uploaded the teaser video on his Twitter account. He also confirmed that the official music video for "River" will be released on Feb. 14 to commemorate Valentine's Day. "River" is Eminem and Sheeran's first collaboration, and the "Shape of You" crooner previously revealed how this happened.
"I get an email from Paul Rosenberg, Eminem's manager, and he said, 'We're gonna start putting the album together, send any ideas.' So I used the studio at Russell's [Crowe] house ... played the drums on it, and then played the guitar, and then recorded the thing and wrote the chorus and did the piano on it, and then sent it off and then didn't hear anything back. This was like March 2016," said Sheeran.
In May 2017, Sheeran and Eminem's common friend told the "Perfect" singer that Eminem already recorded his parts in the song. Sheeran also had the chance to meet Eminem in Detroit thereafter.
Eminem's Successful Album
"River" was released last year, and it is part of Eminem's Revival album. Following its release, the track debuted at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Eminem's album also ranked at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. The success of River named the rapper as the only artist to have eight albums debut at the top of the chart.
Some of the songs included in River are "Walk On Water," "Believe," "Untouchable," "Bad Husband," and more.
