In the video, Rihanna plays a therapist, while Em plays a patient who reflects on the highs and lows of his careers; he revisits some crucial moments that fans are sure to remember—with allusions to 8 Mile and his Grammy performance with Elton John.

The overall dark video, however, doesn’t gloss over the difficult times either, as there are also references to his failed marriage to his ex-wife.
