Eminem and Ed Sheeran's new video for River may have been released on Valentine's Day, but it's certainly not a cheery love story.

Instead, River's narrative casts the rapper as a boxer whose relationship is complicated by an unplanned pregnancy, featuring several minutes of dialogue hearkening back to Eminem's 8 Mile days. Sheeran, who cameos on the song, also appears in the nearly seven-minute long video, brooding in dark rooms and singing as it rains inside a house.

River appears on Eminem's latest album Revival, released in December.
