For anyone that hasn’t yet seen the August issue of Billboard Magazine, there was a write-up about and interview with Alex Da Kid by Billboard’s Associate Editor Ms. Monica Herrera ::

The article made mention of Grey; I’ve quoted the selections below ::

A virtual unknown at the top of 2010, Alex Da Kid has since made a serious impact on the charts. “Airplanes” reached No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” (featuring Rihanna), which he conceived with his own artist Skylar Grey, has spent four consecutive weeks atop the chart.

What’s your reaction to the song’s [“Love The Way You Lie”] success?

“I’m not surprised at all by how people reacted to it. I think it’s like classic Eminem mixed with a different sound, and with Rihanna on it, it just has all the elements.
My artist Skylar Grey worked on the song with me–she’s signed to my production company, Wonderland Entertainment. Everyone wants to sign her now, so we’re working out a deal toward the start of next year.”
