“….”I’ve walked around downtown. I came to visit my sister quite a few times,” Grey says. “Honestly, the most I know about Boston is from the movie ‘Good Will Hunting.

Fans should expect a more mature set from Grey, as she believes her music has evolved over the years.

“I think I’ve grown up a lot in the past couple of years, and I’ve evolved as a human,” she says. “All of my music reflects my real life. A lot of the music that I’m writing these days lyrically talks about these realizations and things that have made me grow recently.”….”

Skylar Grey Talks “Glorious” | Billboard Hot 100 Interview ::
“….How did you and Macklemore end up collaborating on “Glorious”?
I had met Macklemore a few years ago when we did a show together, but we had never worked together. I think he heard a song that I had worked on for
Fast and Furious — it was called “The Good Life, with Kehlani and G-Eazy — and the story I heard, anyways, is that he heard that song and he was like “Who wrote that? I wanna work with whoever that is.” And so then we were linked up and I was very excited, because ever since I’d met him previously I’d wanted to work together and it just didn’t happen, so this was the opportunity. And when we got together, it just kind of happened really fast.

How did you approach writing the chorus with what he already had in place verse-wise?
When I do songwriting with people, a lot of the session is just a conversation, almost like therapy. With Ben [Macklemore’s real first name], it wasn’t that long of a therapy session. I just kind of wanted to feel out where he was in his life, career and mental state, and what he wanted to actually say in the song. And I happened to be in the same place, so it worked out.

I didn’t write the song with myself in mind as a vocalist. I was thinking, you know, “this is kind of gospel-sounding, it’d be dope to have like a gospel singer on it,” and I kind of wrote a little bit out of my range vocally. But it was just funny because a month later [Macklemore] hit me up and was like, “I want you to stay on the song.” They liked the fact that my voice wasn’t gospel, so it made it less expected with that type of melody, I guess. So I ended up staying on the song, and I had to practice a lot, playing it, to be able to perform it live — but I figured out how to do it.

It’s very rare that I write something thinking somebody else is going to be on it, and then I end up on it. Usually it’s kind of the opposite, I write a song and I think I’m gonna sing it, and then somebody else takes it from me [Laughs].

One place your voice seems to really work is in rap — do you think that’s where you fit best, at least in terms of collaborations?
[Fort Minor’s]
“Where’d You Go” was the first rap song I was ever part of [credited as Holly Brook]. I kind of fell into it. It’s just weird because, then when I wrote ‘Love The Way You Lie’ years later, it had nothing to do with that — it wasn’t like working with Mike Shinoda was a springboard for me working with rappers. So I don’t know what the universe was thinking and why I keep getting put in the room with rappers. I really like it though, I think it’s great because it’s such a contrast between what I do and what they do. It kind of like makes the hardcore like rap style a little bit more vulnerable, to have like a soft, pretty part of a song.

So now that you’ve worked with the likes of Eminem, Big Sean and Macklemore, ideally, who’s next?
I think my dream person to work with would be Kendrick Lamar, as far as like rappers go. I think it’d be pretty fun….”
