Eminem released the fourth single off the Marshall Mathers LP 2, today. It is called “The Monster” and features Rihanna. It is the second time these two have collaborated. They’ve previously worked on the Recovery album song “Love The Way You Lie.”

The song was first played on Shade 45 on Sirius radio at 4:45 ET this afternoon. Shortly after, Eminem released the song on Soundcloud for fans to listen to while they await the midnight release of the single on iTunes.

The early feed back has been widely positive and the song has been a huge hit already. In less than two hours on the Soundcloud website, the song has already been played over 700,000 times and that number is growing rapidly.
