Eminem, Skylar Grey Unite for New Album, Rapper Sings on ‘C’mon Let Me Ride’
Slim Shady is bringing his expertise to a new project.
Eminem will executive produce singer Skylar Grey‘s forthcoming album, Don’t Look Down, due in spring 2013. The two previously collaborated on the rapper’s 2010 hit “Love the Way You Lie,” featured on his Recovery album.
“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,” Eminem said in a statement. “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.”
The first single to come from the effort is “C’mon Let Me Ride.” Em lends his vocals to the song, produced by Alex Da Kid. Rolling Stone reports that he sings the hook of Queen’s “Bicycle Race” on the track, arriving Dec. 11.
A video for “C’mon Let Me Ride” was recently shot in Eminem’s hometown of Detroit.
