Eminem released his compilation Shady XV today and decided to include a new video for single “Guts Over Fear” as part of the album’s promotion, featuring the story line of a boxer who is working to overcoming the obstacles of poverty.
It also looks like model Chantelle Brown-Young is standing in for Sia, who sings on the track’s chorus. Sia also chose to hide her face during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and her own video for “Chandelier“; where she was represented by Lena Dunham and Maddie Ziegler, respectively, both in blonde wigs.
The rapper has been using some of his old tactics lately to stir up controversy prior to the album’s release. He threatened singer Lana Del Rey with violence in a new cypher to promote the album, before turning his attention to Iggy Azalea in his new song “Vegas.” Azalea responded to the lyrics, which concerned sexual assault, via her Twitter. She also took home two awards during last night’s American Music Awards for the categories where both she and Eminem were nominated.
