It Has Been Confirmed That Eminem Will Be Producing Skylar Grey’s Debut Album
Aside from producing the album, Eminem will also be singing the hook for Skylar Grey‘s new single “C’Mon Let Me Ride.” Eminem has confirmed on being the executive producer for Skylar Grey’s debut album, Don’t Look Down, which is set to be released in Spring 2013.
In a recent press release, Skylar Grey listed Eminem to sing the hook on her first single, “C’Mon Let Me Ride.” The single will be set to be released on December 11th, and the video for the song was already shot in Detroit, Michigan. The video will be released the same day as the single. On the single, Eminem will be mixing up the hook from Queen’s “Bicycle.”
“Putting out a debut album is a bit scary – I want it to be just right so I took some extra time to finish it. Eminem’s increased involvement has been such a blessing; I’m getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust,” said Grey. “Having written many new songs, the album has become a completely different animal, hence the title change. This new single with Em, in particular, is very exciting. We have worked on so many serious songs together – it’s a nice change of pace to do something fun and sarcastic.”
Eminem added, “When I was working on “Recovery” I was introduced to Skylar by Alex Da Kid and I was blown away with her talent as both a songwriter and vocalist. This album is really going to give her a chance to connect with the fans who probably know her music, but might not know her yet. I think they will be as impressed as I am.”
