Eminem to Exec. Produce Skylar Grey’s Debut Album “Don’t Look Down,” Single Drops Dec. 11
Rapper Eminem is taking Skylar Grey under his wing.
The “Not Afraid” emcee is set to executive produce Grey’s debut album, Don’t Look Down.
“When I was working on Recovery I was introduced to Skylar by Alex Da Kid and I was blown away with her talent as both a songwriter and vocalist. 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,” said Eminem.
Her first single, ”Cmon Let Me Ride” features Eminem, and was produced by Alex Da Kid. Both Eminem and Alex mixed the track, which will be released to all digital retailers on December 11. Grey’s debut album is due out in Spring 2013 under KIDinaKORNER/Interscope.
“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.”
