Skylar Grey DX :: USA Today Playlist – “Skylar Grey, Plus 10 More”

USA Today‘s Brian Mansfield and Elysa Gardner have compiled an 11-song playlist – it’s led by Ms. Grey‘s Eminem-assisted “C’mon Let Me Ride” single, with the rest of the slots being filled with holiday-friendly tracks.

Read the notes on “C’mon Let Me Ride” below, and click the logo to view the rest of the songs in USA Today‘s playlist.

Skylar Grey, Plus 10 More | USA Today ::
“….if the sexual metaphors of Queen’s Bicycle Race have escaped you all these years, Skylar Grey’s C’mon Let Me Ride will be happy to make them plain. Her raunchy single, available Tuesday on iTunes, may have a sing-song melody, but Grey’s attraction to things with two wheels is hardly childlike. And you can be sure the bikes that’ll hold her interest are properly inflated and have banana seats.

Beyond the racy top pick, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas on the playlist….”

Skylar Grey DIX :: The Wall Street Journal, 10-DEC-2012 | Online Edition

After posting their first business news article on Ms. Grey yesterday (December 9), The Wall Street Journal‘s Christopher John Farley has published another article via the WSJ‘s Speakeasy column – the article features more of Farley’s exclusive interview with Ms. Grey regarding both her upcoming Don’t Look Down album, as well as her “C’mon Let Me Ride” single with Eminem, which drops tomorrow (December 11).

You may again read an excerpt from the article below, and click the photo to view the full-length article on the official WSJ website!

Eminem Finds the 51st Shade of Grey | The Wall Street Journal ::
“….so what exactly is Eminem doing as executive producer? Did he just lend his name and credibility to the project or did he provide something more?

“Well, being an executive producer in this case means he is helping me pick the songs for the album, Grey said in an interview. “And he is making suggestions where he thinks I could make a song better. Basically anything he feels he can do to help, his opinion counts and matters in this scenario.”

So what’s one specific thing Eminem did to make the album better? “Especially on the single, ‘C’mon Let Me Ride, when I first played that for him, it was just a hook and a verse. He thought that my verses just weren’t right yet and that I need to go back to the drawing board on the verses but he loved the hook. So I did that and he was totally right because I love the verses a lot better now, and he added his verse. Also it was his idea to put the Queen interpolation [from the band’s “Bicycle Race”] on the song.”….

She says the song is more about satire than sex, and she’s not out to promote the 51 Shade of Grey. “I think it’s funny how sex leads the way in so many different industries. It’s kind of ridiculous and the song is kind of ridiculous. And we put out a lyric video that’s kind of a little bit dirty and sexual and ridiculous as well. The music video emphasizes the sarcasm in the song where I’m making fun of overly sexual aspects of the music industry and the world”….”

Skylar Grey DVIII :: The Wall Street Journal, 9-DEC-2012 | Online Edition

The Wall Street Journal has published a feature article on Ms. Grey, written by Senior Editorial Director Christopher John Farley.

The online edition of the WSJ is subscription-based, but the article has been made free-to-read for a limited time – check out an excerpt below, and click the photo to access the full-length article while it’s still available!

Skylar Grey by Christopher John Farley | The Wall Street Journal ::
“….Grey aims to make the most of her latest chance to make a first impression.

The singer-songwriter is set to release her debut album “Don’t Look Down” in the spring for KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. Vivendi SA’s Interscope recently announced that chart-topping rapper Eminem will serve as the executive producer of the coming release, a move that is nearly certain to increase Ms. Grey’s commercial prospects….

“It’s really nice to have his eyes and ears there because I trust them, and I can bounce things off of him and know that I’m getting good feedback, Ms. Grey said in an interview….

Ms. Grey faces a challenge in her musical rebranding because her roots are in folk and pop, but the public knows her primarily as a vocalist who collaborates with rappers….

Ms. Grey said she isn’t concerned about whether or not people will think that her musical makeover is authentic. “I think only time will show people that, she said. “I think when people hear the whole album and live with it for awhile, they’ll realize there’s a real person in all of that”….”
