Rihanna spoke to MTV News about her initial reluctance to record the song.
She said, "When I first heard the idea about doing a part two, I was just completely against it. I just felt like you couldn't beat the original. There's no way you can outdo that, so why compete with it?"
But she quickly changed her mind once they got into the recording studio.
"We heard a broken-down version that was stripped down, just piano ... that's going to be a bonus on iTunes," she said. "I fell in love with it. We recorded it, then we did another version to the stripped-down version with drums, then we did another version with drums and Eminem. And then that was the one that just felt really good."
And Rihanna had nothing but praise for Eminem.
"Something is wrong with Eminem," she said. "He has so much in his mind that I almost feel lucky for him that he has music. ... Music is such a great release for him. He's one of my favourite artists."
