Who is Skylar Grey and Why is Eminem the Executive Producer of Her Debut Album?

These are the questions we were asking as soon as we found out the news- who on earth is Skylar Grey? And What does she do? Is she a female rapper? Is she the newest, hottest urban artist to hit the world? No. No she's not. But, she does have a really nice voice, which is definitely a good start for a singer.

It's odd that no one knows who she is, because she's done collaborations with Dr Dre, Fort Minor and Lupe Fiasco. She also was part of the writing team for Rihanna and Eminem's 'Love the Way You Lie'. Part of the reason Skylar Grey is so illusive is that for many years she was going under the name 'Holly Brook'- a distinctly more 'grey' name than her Grey name. She will be released a single called 'C'mon Let Me Ride' from her forthcoming album 'Don't Look Down', that was originally going to be called 'Invincible'.

Eminem will be producing 'Don't Look Down' which is set to be released early next year. Grey has become Slim Shady's shadow lately, with multiple collaborations as well as appearing on two tracks from  Slaughterhouse's 'Welcome to: OUR HOUSE', with which Eminem was also heavily involved. MTV quotes her saying: "Eminem's increased involvement has been such a blessing; I'm getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust," Grey said. "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." Well, whoever Skylar Grey is, if Eminem likes her then so do we.
