Eminem Set to Produce Skylar Grey’s Debut Album “Don’t Look Down” @SkylarGrey @Eminem

13-time GRAMMY winning producer, songwriter and rapperEminemhas signed on as executive producer of the hotly anticipated debut album from five-time GRAMMY-nominated singer songwriterSkylar Grey, it was announced today. The first single, Cmon Let Me Ride featuring Eminem,which is produced by Alex Da Kid and mixed by both Eminem and Alex, will be released to all digital retailers onDecember 11. Greys debut album, now titledDont Look Down,is due out Spring 2013 fromKIDinaKORNER/Interscope.

When I was working onRecoveryI was introduced to Skylar by Alex Da Kid and I was blown away with her talent as both a songwriter and vocalist, said Eminem. This album is really going to give her a chance to connect with the fans who probably know her music, but might not know her yet. I think they will be as impressed as I am.

“Putting out a debut album is a bit scary I want it to be just right so I took some extra time to finish it. Eminem’s increased involvement has been such a blessing; I’m getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust, said Grey. Having written many new songs, the album has become a completely different animal, hence the title change. This new single with Em, in particular, is very exciting. We have worked on so many serious songs together its a nice change of pace to do something fun and sarcastic.”

Skylar is one of the first artists that I worked with in a meaningful way. I was immediately impressed with her vision, fearlessness, artistic talent and overall musicianship. I was determined to make her the first artist signed to KIDinaKORNER. KIDinaKORNER was founded on the principals of signing innovative artists that have the ability to blur our perceptions of genres. To me, Skylar Grey represents the embodiment of this principal,” said Alex.

The music video for Cmon Let Me Ride featuring Eminem was shot in Detroit last week and will also be released with the single on December 11. Currently, Grey can be heard on two tracks onSlaughterhousesWelcome to Our Houseon Shady Records/Interscope the title track Our House, which also features Eminem, and Rescue Me and on the song Building a Monster on the soundtrack for the new Tim Burton animated filmFrankenweenie.

Grey is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who is responsible for co-writing some of the most memorable songs to light up the Billboard Hot 100 and iTunes sales charts, totaling more than 25 million singles globally. Grey co-wrote the biggest selling single of 2010: Eminems Love the Way You Lie, which earned her two GRAMMY Award nominations for Best Song and Best Rap Song of the Year. She also co-wrote and appeared on Dr. Dres I Need A Doctor, which she performed alongside Dre and Eminem on the 2011GRAMMY Awardstelecast and for which she was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards. This past January, Grey releasedThe Buried Sessions of Skylar Grey, which featured special acoustic performances by Grey of three songs she wrote and produced: the original demo of Love the Way Part III (the original Love the way You Lie made popular by Eminem and Rihanna), Coming Home Part II (originally performed by Diddy-Dirty Money) and Words (originally Words I Never Said, performed by Lupe Fiasco).
