With Eminem’s Rihanna-assisted track “The Monster” now No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Em stoked anticipation of the song’s full music video by releasing a teaser trailer yesterday (December 13) that also co-stars Rihanna.

The teaser, which is slightly shorter than a minute, finds the pair in a dim office where Eminem is seated in front of a TV on which he silently watches a montage of clips of himself. Rihanna sits nearby taking notes, and a camera trained on Eminem also captures his reactions.
The 57-second “The Monster” video preview ends with an outdoor scene showing a pair of guards with huge guns trained on a large metal crate, the contents of which are not revealed.
