''The remix begins with broken static, as Eminem transitions into his rap ballad, saying, “Said you want a little company/And I love it ‘cuz the thrill’s cheap.” But rather than just rap, Eminem clearly matches the pitch of his words to that of The Weeknd, making the transition to the chorus seamless.
As the track continues, Eminem becomes more aggressive in his tone of voice, rapping, “And every time he hurt you, I heard you / Your shoulder to cry on / And I’ll be damned if I weren’t who you turned to.” Here, he uses subtle lyrical techniques to emphasize his frustration, such as alliteration, assonance, and plain cursing.
In comparison to the original, the remix version does what the original could not. Eminem breathed new life into the 21-week-charting track. He added a part to the song that I did not initially think was needed, but now most certainly do. All in all, the remix is a clear example of how music is a progression and relies on the development of others to improve.'' (TheRaiderReview)
