And what an emotional video it is.  It’s been exactly 15 years since Eminem starred in the hit movie, 8 Mile and now Eminem has returned to his acting roots once again.  The video follows Eminem’s relationship with a woman who is married (or dating) and then later learns she’s preggo.


At the beginning of the video, Eminem says, “My personal life is not exactly a highlight reel.”


As Billboard explains, “The confessional, documentary-style visual begins with Em sitting in a bare room pondering the question, “What does love mean to you?” The six-minute clip begins on an emotional high, as the songs’ lyrics describe Shady hooking up with a woman behind her boyfriend’s back, and falling in love.  As the murky video progresses on, it transitions from cool waters to a raging current. A series of lo-fi clips of Shady and his new girl move from secret love to full blown arguing.”



And in the final verse, Eminem admits that to him, ‘River’ means, “Something I needed to get off my chest.”
