Il video musicale del mese: River di Eminem ft. Ed Sheeran, con testo e significato

LEGGI IN 4'

15 febbraio 2018 - Uscito ieri in occasione del San Valentino, il video di River, la canzone di Eminem con Ed Sheeran, ha fatto letteralmente il botto di visualizzazioni su YouTube nel giro di sole 24 ore dalla messa online. Più di 5milioni di clic in un giorno, tanto che la clip è entrata di diritto nei trend del momento.

Il motivo? Una piccola burla da parte di Eminem, che ha augurato un Unhappy Valentine's Day su Twitter e Facebook, per preparare i suoi fan al video, dedicato alle storie d'amore sbagliate. Più precisamente quelle in cui lui non è esattamente il Principe Azzurro, ma ammette con un certo orgoglio di non esserlo. La cosa deve aver incuriosito in molti, visti i numeri da capogiro.

Il testo della canzone è un po' forte e per questo traduciamo solo l'inciso. Anche le immagini non solo leggere e mostrano liti di coppia, anche piuttosto infervorate. Per chi volesse leggere le lyrics originali in versione integrale, lo può fare subito dopo la clip ufficiale di River.

Notizia interessante, Ed Sheeran pare abbia registrato la sua parte vocale in uno studio di registrazione speciale. Quello allestito nella casa dell'attore Russel Crowe e più precisamente nella sua fattoria australiana, dove Sheeran era ospite quando gli è arrivata la proposta di duetto da parte del rapper americano.

RIVER "Fiume" di Eminem ft. Ed Sheeran
Inciso
"Sono stato un bugiardo, sono stato un ladro
Sono stato un amante, sono stato un traditore
Tutti i miei peccati hanno bisogno di acqua santa, la sento mentre mi lava
Oh, piccola, non voglio ammettere qualcosa
Se so che causerà solo dolore
La verità nelle mie bugie in questo momento sta cadendo come la pioggia
Quindi lascia scorrere il fiume"

RIVER di Eminem ft. Ed Sheeran

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
A little one, I don't want to admit to something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth in my lies right now are falling like the rain
So let the river run

He's coming home with his next grasp to catch flack
Sweat jackets and dress less, mismatch
On his breast jackets is sex addict
And cheaters want to egg sack it for being checked, get back
It's a chest match, she's on his back like a jetpack
She's kept track of all his internet chats
And guess who just so happens to be moving on to the next
Actually, just shit on my last chick and she has what my ex lacks
'Cause she loves danger, psychopath
And you don't fuck with no man's girl, even I know that
But she devised some plan to stab him in the back
Knifing hands, says the relationship hanging by a strip
So she's been on the web lately
Says maybe she'll be my Gwen Stacy, to Spiderman
And I know she's using me to try to play him, I don't care
Hi Suzanne, but I shoulda' said "Bye Suzanne" after the first night, but tonight I am

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
A little one, I don't want to admit to something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth in my lies right now are falling like the rain
So let the river run

One night stand turned into night stayin'
It was cold, some lights gram
Y'all be hung tight and
He found out, now she feels deserted and used
'Cause he left, so what? He did adverse to her too
Now how am I supposed to tell this girl that we're through?
It's hard to find the words, I'm aloof, nervous and suited
When it's too hurt but what you deserve is the truth
Don't take it personal, I just can't say this in cursin' to you
So I revert to the studio like Hole In The Wall diners
Don't have to be reserved in a booth
I just still like the person who I'm turnin' into
Irreversible, I pray for you like a church at the pew
And now that I got you I don't want you
Took advantage of my thirst to pursue
Why do I do this dirt that I do?
Get on my soap box and breach, my sermon in speech
Detergent and bleach is burned in the womb
'Cause now with her in the womb
We can't bring her in this bullshit in new
To use protection 'fore I pity to your forbidden crew, fuck

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
A little one, I don't want to admit to something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth in my lies now are falling like the rain
So let the river run

My name's (ooh)
My name's (ooh)
Denver, never run
Call me (ooh)
Call me (ooh)
River (ooh)
We'll let the river run

Always the bride's maid, never "The bride, hey!"
What can I say? If life was a highway
The sequels are non-clay
But be swerving in side lanes
Speeds at a high rate, like I'm sliding on ice maybe
That's why I'm made, that came at you sideways
I can't keep my lies straight, what I made you
Terminate my baby
This love triangle, left us in a rectangle
What else can I say? It was fun for a while
That I really woulda' loved your smile
Didn't really want to abort
But fuck it, what's one more lie to tell an unborn child?

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
A little one, I don't want to admit to something (I'm sorry, I fucked up)
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth in my lies now are falling like the rain
So let the river run
