Crafting Eminem X Rihanna’s ‘The Monster’: Writer Jon Bellion Breaks It Down

Chances are you’ve never heard of Jon Bellion, but that’s OK, because both Eminem and Rihanna know him quite well. A quick YouTube search of the 22-year old singer/songwriter will turn up a collection of hopeful pop pieces like “Ungrateful Eyes” and “One More Time,” but diehards will have to look closely at the liner notes for the Eminem’s November 5 album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 to find Bellion’s name listed as a songwriter for Slim Shady’s new single “The Monster.” Hear him explain to MTV News how the new track came about.
