Alex Da Kid got four GRAMMY nominations, including ones for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for producing Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love The Way You Lie.” The British producer told us how Em and Rihanna hooked up for the track.
“He heard the demo and he loved it and they reached out to Rihanna and made it happen. He really wanted to put her on it, once he heard the demos there was only one person he wanted on it.”
Alex added that the song was put together very quickly.
“He kind of heard the song and recorded it within two days and I went down there to mix it with him and it was just so rushed it was the last song for his album and Rihanna was recording it as we were mixing it. It was just amazing, it all kinda happened at once but yeah it was an amazing experience.”
Alex is also nominated with Eminem for Rap Album of the Year and for the coveted Album of the Year for Recovery.
