As most of us know it did happen and they meshed together to form their song “River.” Recently, the official music video was released on February 14, 2018. It begins with Eminem being asked, “What does love mean to you?” Ed Sheeran mentions trust in the video and sums up to say, “If you do not have that then it will not end well.” So what does this song really mean? These lyrics paint a picture of a true time in Eminem’s life. He was the other man in a previous relationship with his ex-girlfriend. Ed Sheeran’s calming voice comes in to say that Eminem wants to be washed clean of his wrong choices. The video is an emotional rollercoaster as they go from smiling to rain falling, things crashing around them, and disappointing fights. He says the word “Sorry” over the last portion of the video. The final question asked to Eminem is, “Explain to us a bit about what the song means to you.” His response is, “What the song means to me is something that I felt like I needed to get off my chest.”
