The sequel appears on Rihanna's fifth studio album, Loud as the final track. A piano version, which excludes Eminem's part of the song, appears as a bonus track on the iTunes edition of Loud. Rihanna performed the song during the American Music Awards of 2010 together with her US number-one singles "Only Girl (In the World)" and "What's My Name?".
