In addition to that, she’s also known for writing last years biggest hit.  Can you guess which song?

Best known for writing “Love The Way You Lie” the song that brought AMP Artist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm] together.

Although she admits “I didn’t write it with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna [/lastfm]in mind, I just wrote what I felt over the beat, thinking that I would sing it. I felt honored that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm] was drawn to the song because I’ve always respected him as an artist.”
