I can’t say that Eminem’s last album Revival was good at all, but the video for River is one of the songs that I can somewhat stomach. This song dealt with one of the more common issues in a relationship, infidelity. The video gives us a visual of a girl (Sue) cheating on her husband with Eminem, and how it all comes crashing down when he says he doesn’t want her anymore. Add an unexpected pregnancy to the mix, and things get even more complicated.
I will admit the director did a great job at bringing this video to life and sheds a light on this constant issue in domestic relationships. Think twice before you get into situations like this.
