Skylar Grey MLXXX :: Forbes’ 30 Under 30 – Music Judge for Class of 2018, Full Class of 2018 Announced

The class for Forbes30 Under 30 Class of 2018 has been chosen, and senior editor Zack O’Malley Greenburg has published the fill list to Forbes.com!

Ms. Grey was previously hand-chosen to be included in Forbes30 Under 30 in 2012, and this year served as one of the judges to hand-pick which artists would be included in 2018’s music category.

Check out two excerpts from the article below to see what Ms. Grey had to say about 29-year-old Detroit singer-songwriter/producer Mike Posner and 25-year-old New York singer-songwriter/producer Emily Warren, and click the Forbes logo to see the full feature and gallery on the Class of 2018!

Skylar Grey – Music Judge | Forbes‘ 30 Under 30 Class of 2018 ::
“….our list highlights best and brightest singers, songwriters, rappers, DJs, agents, managers and entrepreneurs in the business. The only requirement, aside from receiving the most votes from our judges, is that candidates must be under age 30 as of December 31, 2017, and must not have appeared on a previous 30 Under 30. This year’s honorees hail from genres ranging from hip-hop to country to contemporary Christian, and vary in age from 17-year-old opera sensation Jackie Evancho to 29-year-old pop maestro Mike Posner.

“There is more than what meets the eye with Mike Posner,” says Grey. “Although he’s had a big career as an artist, his songwriting abilities have made him responsible for many other artists’ hits. With all he’s accomplished by age 29, this is like the ‘lifetime achievement’ award of 30 Under 30.”

The 30 Under 30 Music Class of 2018 has also unmasked previously anonymous stars Marshmello and H.E.R. while including behind-the-scenes players like WondaGurl, a producer responsible for hits by Rihanna and Drake; Chris Zarou, the manager of suicide prevention advocate Logic; and Emily Warren, who has penned songs for the likes of The Chainsmokers and Shawn Mendes.

“Her sound and style of writing is so fresh, and I find a lot of other writers trying to emulate it,” says Grey of Warren. “She’s young, but she’s been in the game for a while, so this isn’t some flash-in-the-pan writer. I think she’ll be killing it for a long time.”….”

Eminem’s 30 Biggest Billboard Hot 100 Hits | Billboard ::
“….this chart is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods.

12. “I Need A Doctor” – Eminem and Skylar Grey
Hot 100 Peak Position: 4 (2011)

The respect and loyalty between Dre and Eminem is in full view on the Alex da Kid produced “I Need A Doctor. Singer Skylar Grey told San Francisco’s WiLD 94.9 that Em’s lyrics, which he recorded in two hours after presented with the hook, brought her to tears.

2. “Love The Way You Lie” – Eminem feat. Rihanna
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 for seven weeks (2010)

Eminem and Rihanna touch on the heavy subject of domestic abuse with sincere emotion. The mid-tempo track takes a look into the minds of both the abuser and the victim. “Love the Way You Lie” held on to No. 1 on the Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks and was Em’s second No. 1 from Billboard 200 No. 1 Recovery….”

Skylar Grey MLXXVI :: ‘Room For Happiness’ w/ Kaskade – Kaskade’s 20 Best Songs: Critic’s Picks, Billboard, 24-OCT-2017

In her second Billboard list of this month, Ms. Grey‘s Room for Happiness collaboration with Kaskade has made contributor Kat Bein‘s newly published Kaskade’s 20 Best Songs: Critic’s Picks list, placing at #9!

Read the introduction to the list as well as the “Room for Happiness” section below, and click Billboard‘s logo to check out the other 19 Kaskade selections that made the list!

Kaskade’s 20 Best Songs: Critic’s Picks | Billboard ::
“….when you talk about the modern dance music scene, certain names invariably come up. Kaskade is one of this generation’s most prolific house harbingers. He was raised in the genre’s native streets of Chicago, going out to raves before he was legally allowed to drink. There, he learned to control a crowd with treble and bass, but if was after he moved to San Francisco that he began his professional career.

That city’s vibrant creative community boosted him to release his first album It’s You, It’s Me in 2003. The work heralded a fresh, uplifting progressive house sound that would go on to become Kaskade’s trademark.

Some 15 years later, Kaskade remains a forward-thinking voice on the dance circuit. He fully embraces the big-room Las Vegas shows, but he also caters to the underground’s diversity with his Redux EPs and small-venue tours. He always lends his voice to the important discussions this scene faces, from drug use to violence in what should be safe places.

He is a man who lives the positivity that is felt in his songs, and those songs should be celebrated. So, today we give you Billboard Dance’s 20 favorite Kaskade songs.

9. Kaskade (feat. Skylar Grey) – Room For Happiness
This last cut from the fiery half of 2011’s 
Fire & Ice is absolutely iconic. You know what it is the moment that fat synth melody hits over that bold kick. Skylar Grey’s vocals are a thing of mysterious beauty and absolutely perfect as the song melts into airy refrain. The uplifting chorus is a message we could all use to hear a little more often. Next time you need a pick-me-up, throw this glowing gem of a song on your earbuds and find the silver lining in any cloudy day….”

Skylar Grey MLXXV :: ‘I Need A Doctor’ w/ Dr. Dre x Eminem – Eminem’s Top 8 Collaborations With Female Artists, Billboard, 16-OCT-2017

Billboard contributor Bianca Alysse has compiled a list of Eminem’s Top 8 Collaborations With Female Artists for the publication, with Ms. Grey‘s 2011/classic Eminem x Dr. Dre feature I Need A Doctor coming in at #7!

Read the introduction to the article as well the write-up for “I Need A Doctor” below, and click Billboard‘s logo to check out the list in its entirety!

Eminem’s Top 8 Collaborations With Female Artists | Billboard ::
“….like him or not, Eminem is beyond blessed with the gift of gab. Whether using his voice seemingly as a voice for chaos or speaking out for the greater good, the MC’s lyrics have been placed under a microscope since his ‘99 breakthrough record, “My Name Is.

And despite frequent (and not entirely unfair) media complaints about the rappers’ sometimes misogynistic expression, some of the charts’ most beloved empresses have seen fit to join forces with him in the studio. 

Art is not created to be polite, and Eminem’s often record-breaking career is one to be respected. Women always seem to push the culture forward, and it is clear — some of the lyricist’s most outstanding efforts have come alongside queens of the pop and hip-hop worlds. Take a listen to eight heroine-assisted gems dropped by Eminem….

7. Dr. Dre feat. Eminem & Skylar Grey  – “I Need a Doctor”

….He went from barely being able to support his family to becoming the best-selling artist of the 2000s in the U.S. — none of which Eminem thought would be possible without the help of his mentor and friend, Dr. Dre. On Dre’s “I Need a Doctor, he describes grappling with downheartedness, before coming the realization Dr. Dre lost his son, Andre Young Jr, and managed to persevere.

Skylar Grey sings of the legendary entrepreneur’s ability to revive the dead with the chorus, “I need a doctor, call me a doctor/ I need a doctor, doctor/ To bring me back to life.” Still, the track wasn’t complete without a hungry Dr. Dre capping the song with a final verse, while acknowledging Eminem’s invaluable loyalty to him throughout the years….”
