Eminem Sings Classic Queen Hook On Skylar Grey's 'C'Mon Let Me Ride'

As well as executive producing Skylar Grey's new album Don't Look Down, Eminem also features on lead single 'C'Mon Let Me Ride', singing a classic hook from Queen's Bicycle Race. Grey famously penned the rapper's smash hit single 'Love the Way You Lie.'

Speaking to Rolling Stone about the idea of having Eminem sing the chorus to the single, Grey explained, "That was an Eminem move. The first time I heard his verse, he had added that part in as well and it made me laugh, so we kept it." The original idea was to have Freddie Mercury's original vocals on the track, though Grey said, "I love hearing Marshall change his voice like that and just, like, be a character, play a character, so I thought that was funnier, personally." The playful, satirical tune about music, the media and girls is likely to be a hit anyway, though the Eminem factor won't hurt its release. The superstar rapper has plenty of faith in Grey too, "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," he said in a press release. "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."

Grey's new album Don't Look Down is scheduled for a Spring 2013 release.
