Skylar Grey | AUDIENCE Music Concert Series ::
“….“This is such a great opportunity, I think especially for an artist like me, who’s going through a transition and a rebirth because it doesn’t necessarily click with just one song. So being able to show people a handful of songs at a time and really show them what you’re doing. It’s such a great opportunity to be able to do that,” Skylar Grey says on set while taping a concert for this season’s AT&T AUDIENCE Music Concert Series….

….as Grey points out, a show like this, which has included everyone from Imagine Dragons, Bebe Rexha and Sam Hunt to Dashboard Confessional, Ne-Yo and En Vogue this season, gives artists who might not otherwise be on TV a chance to be introduced to new audiences….

….Grey was actively involved in her set on this day. “Very rarely do I invest the time, energy and money into stage sets,” she says. “But I felt like it was very important because I am going through such a transformation I wanted to bring the audience into the new world that I’m in with not just the music, but also an aesthetic. So I chose these yellow flowers that are inspired by Napa, where I live now. I wanted to bring a little piece of home up onstage with me.”….”

The Music of Fifty Shades | Pre-Order ::
“….LOS ANGELESJan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — On February 14, UMe brings together the individually released soundtracks for one of the most successful film trilogies of all time as The Music Of Fifty Shades – Complete Soundtrack Collection. This deluxe 4CD, 76-track box set includes all three film soundtracks — 2015’s Fifty Shades Of Grey, 2017’s Fifty Shades Darker, and 2018’s Fifty Shades Freed — plus a bonus disc featuring the Fifty Shades Of Grey Remixed album and a previously unreleased version of Liam Payne & Rita Ora’s international singles chart hit “For You (Fifty Shades Freed), in addition to rare remixes and other bonus tracks. An exclusive, lavish hardcover collectible coffee-table photo book with images from all three movies is also part of the overall package.

Fifty Shades fans will now be able to enjoy such indelible songs as Annie Lennox’s haunting cover of “I Put A Spell On You, The Weeknd’s dramatic reading of “Earned It, ZAYN and Taylor Swift’s smash-hit duet “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever, and the uplifting Hailee Steinfeld & BloodPop® singalong “Capital Letters, along with the remixes of key tracks by Laura Welsh (“Undiscovered”) and Jessie Ware (“Meet Me In The Middle”) and a number of selections from each movie’s score by noted film composer Danny Elfman, all in one complete collection.

Fifty Shades is one of the most successful film trilogies of all time, with a cumulative global box office gross of over $1 billion. Noted British author E. L. James inaugurated her Fifty Shades erotic romance novel series in 2011 with the first electrifying installment, Fifty Shades Of Grey, introducing the world to the ever-deepening relationship between college graduate Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson in the film trilogy) and young business magnate Christian Grey (played by Jamie Dornan). The series quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, and a pair of high-octane best-selling sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, both released in 2012, added even more heat to the series and its ongoing success.

Since its release, the Fifty Shades book trilogy has been translated into well over 51 languages worldwide and sold more than 100 million copies in e-book and print combined, making it one of the biggest and fastest-selling book series ever. 

The Music Of Fifty Shades – Complete Soundtrack Collection is the perfect aural companion for fans of both the film trilogy and book series alike.

Check out the excerpt below, and click the Black Girl Nerds logo to read the other interview pieces featured in the article (including with the film’s composer Rupert Gregson-Williams, the film’s screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, and Cyborg actor Ray Fisher).

Interview w/ Skylar Grey | Black Girl Nerds ::
“….what was it like doing the music for Aquaman?

I am very excited to have my first untitled performed by me, but also I wrote it with my fiance, Elliott Taylor. James Wan and I worked together in the past and he reached out to me again to work on this song. He kind of wanted a Titanic Love Ballad moment, and so I attempted at that. And then the melody of my song is used throughout the film during the love scenes and things like that.

Did you grow up reading comic books?

I didn’t grow up reading comic books but I got more into comics when they became movies. Like Batman, I am obsessed with and then I worked on the Suicide Squad movie. I did some of the music for that as well….”
