MusicWorld – The Shadow and The Spotlight: Skylar Grey | BMI ::
“….If there’s a thread coursing through Skylar Grey’s hot-streak, it’s UK beat-making phenom Alex Da Kid.

Diddy Speaks On Skylar Grey | Star Tribune ::
“Why did Diddy use Grey when he already has two top-notch vocalists in Diddy Dirty Money?

“….Skylar Grey’s voice is beautiful. Skylar Grey was like one of 15 guest appearances,” the boss explained. “It’s not like I don’t respect my talent because I let Justin Timberlake do a verse or let Drake do a verse. Same thing: We want to work with great artists. We don’t have a problem with sharing the spotlight. That’s what makes it better, when you play with great people….”
