Massage Kept Skylar Grey from Super Bowl Moment | The New York Post ::
“….Grey had one of the biggest moments of her career during the Super Bowl when Budweiser aired an ad featuring her song, “Coming Home, Part 2,” a stand-alone version of her part of Diddy’s 2010 hit, “Coming Home.” But Grey didn’t even watch it unfold.
“Actually, I was in Hawaii on vacation during the Super Bowl, and I didn’t even see my commercial play because I was getting a massage,” she told The Post Thursday at the American Express Skybox after the Marissa Webb show at Lincoln Center. “But when I got out of my massage, I had all these text messages and e-mails from people congratulating me, telling me it was amazing.”
Her friends weren’t the only ones who took note — the song shot into the iTunes top 40 overnight….”
Grey Shares Intimate Video | Idolator ::
“….Bruno Mars isn’t the only artist getting a post-Super Bowl sales boost….the song has rocketed into the top 40 on iTunes overnight and talented singer/songwriter wisely had a video ready to drop….
It’s a simple affair. Skylar performs the song at her piano with a couple of candles to set the mood but the no-fuss visual suits the song’s stripped back sound and introspective lyrics.
Could this become a hit for Skylar all over again?….”
