Skylar Grey DCXXX :: FINAL WARNING Single – Reviews and Buzz

Having been released nearly one week ago (April 16) today, the feedback for the newest Skylar Grey single FINAL WARNING has been mostly positive, although the dark nature of the song has surprised some listeners and reviewers – check out some of the comments on the song below.

Be sure to check out the official lyric video on YouTube, and tweet @SkylarGrey your own thoughts on the song as well!

Skylar Grey’s “Final Warning” | Idolator ::
“….after the darkly playful irony of her lead single “C’mon Let Me Ride, Skylar Grey is going for the jugular with her newest effort “Final Warning, a skittering midtempo ballad that’s not playful or ironic — it’s just dark. Produced by her frequent collaborator Alex da Kid, the track evokes Grey’s biggest hit as a songwriter — Eminem and Rihanna‘s “Love the Way You Lie” — toying with themes of violence and vengeance. (“Someone’s gonna get hurt / And it’s not gonna be me,” she intones ominously on the chorus.) It’s effectively eerie and weird, but “Final Warning” is no radio hit, even as it features one of her catchier melodies to date.

In interviews, Grey has described “Final Warning” as her favorite song on her upcoming debut Don’t Look Down, and it’s not difficult to see why, since it’s a nice encapsulation of what she does as an artist: It’s melodramatic, a little bit menacing and impressively infectious, and there’s something thrilling about hearing her sing, “Good afternoon, dear / How does the rope feel around your neck?” with the sing-song detachment of a horror film villain.

Whether it’ll resonate with listeners is another matter entirely, but even if it doesn’t, Grey will be fine. She wrote one of the best-selling songs of 2010 — she’ll be laughing all the way to the bank either way….”

Grey’s “Final Warning” Takes A Dark Turn | About.com’s Top 40 ::
“….pop songs don’t get much darker than the sentiments of Skylar Grey’s new single “Final Warning. The song has a catchy hook delivered in a sing song, emotionally flat voice by Skylar Grey. With words of revenge it plays out like the soundtrack to a creepy horror movie….”

New Music | stupidDOPE ::
“….Grey has been on all of our minds since dropping her track with Eminem, and she returns today with a dope new track called “Final Warning”. The track is an interesting, dark, emotional number that finds Ms. Grey speaking from the heart about the sweet taste of revenge.

Her brutally truthful bars has a dark, humorous quality that will definitely make you want to get out and do something with yourself. If you’re sleeping on this young lady, its time to wake up, check out the track after the jump….”

“Final Warning” | DJBooth.net ::
“….on the surface, Skylar Grey might seem like your ordinary alt-pop songstress. Upon closer inspection, however, she has a sharp edge, as evidenced by 2012’s Eminem-assisted C’mon Let Me Ride. Her latest effort, Final Warning, is a lot like her persona: while Skylar’s irresistibly raspy, yet soft vocals make for an intoxicating, catchy listen, the record’s ear-pleasing qualities belie its dark subject matter. Backed by a string-driven beat from Alex Da Kid, Grey takes up arms against a new ex, refusing to be heartbroken and vowing that she will come out on top at any cost….”

4 Out of 5 Stars | PopCrush ::
“….the track tells the tale of a relationship stuck in a maelstrom of dysfunction and a woman who can’t take it anymore. Instead of just gathering up her things, including her self respect, and walking out, the protagonist of the track plots to murder her philandering lover.

It’s a song reminiscent of Grey’s mentor Eminem‘s track ‘Kim, in which the Detroit rapper threatened to kill his ex-wife. But Grey’s colder, more calculated, than the heated, passionate Marshall Mathers was. Grey is a woman with a plan.

And if you listen long enough, the singer’s haunting, Lana Del Rey-like vocals croon over an argument and a gunshot. It’s creepy, yes — but hell if it’s not a compelling listen….”

New Music | Sway’s Universe ::
“….Grey means business in her latest single, Final Warning off her Don’t Look Down Interscope debut album, due July 9. In the passive-aggressive-spooky record, she warns her love interest to get his act together before“someone gets hurt.”

Fun fact: Skylar wrote this record almost three years ago….”

New Song: ‘Final Warning’ | DirectLyrics ::
“….watch out guys! Skylar Grey is in for the kill….

….the whole vibe of the song is really spooky, but Skylar sings the hook in a really naive-y way that makes a fun contrast…. It’s like she’s almost happy to be able to do ‘it’…. If ya like “Final Warning” buy it or request on radio!….”

‘Final Warning’ Single | Jon ALi’s Blog ::
“….“Final Warning” brings back why we fell in love with Skylar in the first place. The song is dark, melancholic, and even a bit twisted – I love it!….”

Listen to Skylar Grey | PureVolume ::
“….edgy popstar/songwriter Skylar Grey has an ominous new single for you to hear: “Final Warning.

Even if you haven’t heard of Grey, trust us—you’ve heard of Grey: She’s responsible for writing the hook to Eminem and Rihanna’s mega hit “Love the Way You Lie, along with Dr. Dre’s “I Need a Doctor, Diddy-Dirty Money’s “Coming Home” and way more.

The dark “Final Warning” comes off Grey’s highly anticipated debut album Don’t Look Down, which features Eminem as its executive producer. ….”

Hope She Was Worth It | Dropout UK ::
“….Grey has unveiled the spooky second single from her forthcoming debut album.

The singer displayed her more playful side in her Eminem assisted ‘C’Mon Let Me Ride’.  A contrast to the sound of her first single, ‘Final Warning’ is dark and emotional. Apparently Skylar wrote the track over three years ago, but wanted to keep it waiting in the wings until her album.

Hear Grey speak about the sweet taste of revenge in ‘Final Warning’….”

FINAL WARNING | The Chronic ::
“….she’s due to release her hotly anticipated debut album in July. Her latest single is ‘Final Warning‘ and is the kind of dreamy, dark pop that we’ve come to expect from Skylar Grey. It’s a lovely track with soothing vocals juxtaposing its dark lyrics. Definitely worth checking out and I look forward to hearing the album when it drops…..”

In response to a fan question via Twitter earlier today (April 21), RiFF RAFF again made mention of his Skylar Grey & Skrillex collaboration, which based off of past tweets is seemingly titled “Drunk Girl”, though the final released track may of course have its titled changed.

Ms. Grey has also posted a couple of pictures to Instagram in recent months of her and Skrillex working on music together – possibly on the “Drunk Girl” song, although what music they were working on specifically wasn’t confirmed at the time.

The track is set to be released on RiFF RAFF‘s Neon iCON album, which is currently slated to drop in the third-quarter of 2013 – check out the tweet below, as well as the Skylar Grey Instagram photos from February of this year!
