10 Famous Musicians You Didn’t Know Wrote Songs for Rihanna | Clevver ::
“….like all artists, there are tunes the 30-year-old puts on her albums, some of which are her most popular, that she actually didn’t write at all. She’s truly the queen of collaborations, working with some of the top names in the industry to put out bop after bop after bop. So which artists have written for Rihanna over the years? Some are more commonly known and actually sang on the track as well whereas others are shockers….

7 of 10: SKYLAR GREY
Skylar Grey not only wrote “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)” for Rihanna and Eminem to perform, but also lent some vocals to the track. Part 1 of the song was already amazing but Part 2 was even better — do you agree?….”

Nick Jonas Talks “Right Now” w/ Skylar Grey | Teen Vogue ::
“….Teen Vogue: ….Are you working on music as well?

Nick Jonas: I’ve been working on a lot of new music. And I have some new music coming out in about two weeks. It’s a song with Robin Schulz which I’m really excited about called “Right Now” that I wrote with Skylar Grey. It’s a song that I’ve been sitting on for awhile, but I was looking for the right time to put it out and the right person to collaborate with. I’ve also been in the studio with Timbaland and TMS which is a great production group out of the UK. Some new and inspiring influences that represent the next statement I want to make as an artist….”

Skylar Grey MCXXXIII :: ‘Skylar Grey is a Genre-Defying Songstress’ Interview w/ Kasey Caminiti – DuJour Magazine, AUG-2018 | Photos

“….I’m so grateful for my right hand girl, Vanessa. She always makes sure I have everything I need to put on a good show….”
– Skylar Grey, Dujour

Kasey Caminiti has published a brand new interview piece with Ms. Grey for DuJour Magazine, entitled Skylar Grey is a Genre-Defying Songstress – wherein they chat about a new perspective on songwriting, touring the world with Eminem, giving fans a taste of her new album with upcoming singles, and love.

Read a couple of excerpts below, and click any of the photos to view the full interview piece!

This DuJour piece also contains a 16-photo Tour Diary, so be sure to click View the Gallery photo/link at the beginning of the article on their website when you’re ready to have a peek at that!

Interview w/ Skylar Grey | DuJour ::
“….as I sit across from Grey earlier this summer, just moments before she’s set to perform on stage next to rap phenom Eminem, she’s wearing jeans and a black tank top with her tapestry of tattoos peaking through. Her boyfriend Elliott Taylor sits beside us and offers a few quiet giggles throughout our chat. Grey is delicate and relaxed as she sips her tea and I feel a mess of butterflies in my stomach as I hear the audience erupt when Eminem walks on stage….

After working heavily in hip-hop and with rappers in particular, Grey says she’s ready to change directions, but with a new perspective on songwriting. As a younger songwriter, Grey focused more on the sound of a song, harping on the melody and the music. “When I started working with rappers, it became all about wordplay and storytelling. I got inspired to take that idea of creating really good, clever lyrics back into folk music,” she explains….

Departing from what she’s done in the past musically, Grey is prepared to give the world a new taste of Skylar Grey, in love and happy. Although she admits she loves a body of work, she wants people to have time to digest her rediscovered musical roots. So, listeners can expect singles in the near future and a full-length album further down the road….”

Skylar Grey MCXXX :: Interview w/ Global Grind – Global Grind Exclusive, 22-JUN-2018

“….I believe good songs are good songs. No matter how they are heard….”
– Skylar Grey, Global Grind

In a brand new, exclusive interview with Royce Dunmore for Global Grind, Ms. Grey talks her upcoming album, Kendrick Lamar and Céline Dion, and her favourite rap hook written by someone else.

Read a short excerpt below, and click the Global Grind logo to access the full interview!

Interview w/ Skylar Grey | Global Grind ::
“….The depth of her talent continues to grow….

….What’s it been like connecting to today’s generation using folk music? Do you think it’s different to how you connected to it growing up?
Yeah, well I grew up making folk music with my mom, and for the past 10 years I took quite a departure from that. So I felt it was time to take it back to my roots. The songs I am writing these days are reminiscent of the classic Laurel Canyon vibe of the 1970’s artists like Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, which I used to listen to on vinyl. But my songs will come out on things like iTunes and Spotify! Haha. I believe good songs are good songs. No matter how they are heard. What matters most is if the lyrics and melody are meaningful and moving….

You’ve also worked on blockbuster movie soundtracks. Any summer movies you’re excited for? Any one you’d like to create a song for?
I’m so out of the loop on whats coming out… other than the soundtracks I’m currently working on! But they’re top secret….”
