    LTWYL was actually very well received when Recovery was leaked.
    Just got so overplayed

    Monster is a decent Pop/Rap record too.
    I remember @Koolo called it a 10/10 before anyone heard it.

    I never really minded records getting overplayed tbh, always loved these two just like other overplayed records like Empire State Of Mind by Jay, for example.

    lmao Em could make an album with the stuff that was worse than that song. Even a deluxe.

    Yeah, it hurts seeing him on top of the world, it's been so long

    I have to admit that I enjoy LTWYL more than The Monster. I love both though.

    You can tell they said "let's just go stupid with this one and have fun instead of chasing another hit and the pressure that comes with it"

    Rihanna's part was kinda cool, but Em went in like it was C’mon Let Me Ride pt 2 or something.

    Still convinced that this direction that Em took is a reason why he fell off since dropping Recovery up to Revival. He wasn't consistent at all with his music during that period, the popy singles ruined him.

    Monster is easily the best song they made. Rest of them are trash...or at least just not my cup of tea.

    I think the reason he fell off is because he kept doing the same thing he did in Recovery. I rap, a singer sings, I rap and a singer sings again. This worked for Recovery and it was cool cause it was completly different from Relapse. He tried something different and it worked. Then he got too comfy and kept doing the same thing over and over again.

    And also Rihanna was a hit maker, none of his songs with other pop stars ever blew up, not even the one with Beyoncé which should have been a big deal.

    I saw Em and Rihanna at the rose bowl in Pasadena I think something that would surprise a lot of people is here is that their set was pretty split. They did a few opening songs together like renegade/run this town remix and opened with numb, what's funny though the stadium was pretty f---ing empty for Rihanna's set list but the later it got in the night and Rihanna's set was coming to an end it's like everyone knew Em was coming and the place got jam packed and went nuts for him.
