Get Into It: Skylar Grey

You may not know her name ...yet. But you definitely know her voice. She is Skylar Grey, a singer/songwriter/producer. She was instrumental in writing all three versions of the Eminem/Rihanna hit "Love The Way You Lie," as well as the guiding voice of Dirty Money's smash hit "I'm Coming Home." I actually prefer the J. Cole/Skylar Grey version of "Coming Home" to the DM one. She is currently featured on Eminem's latest single "I Need A Doctor" which also features Dr. Dre. And, on Lupe Fiasco's "Words I Never Said" which is sure to be a controversial song. I actually liked her demo version of "Love The Way You Lie" more than Rihanna's vocals. She has a great voice. I happen to love singer/songwriters who can do both perfectly. She falls into this category for me. So, here are some of her songs and features. Get into it!!


  1. Her singing "the way you lie" gives me chills and is so much more intense. Provokes emotions you know... And as far as Lupe ft. her on The Words I Never Said - that's my shhhhhhhhhhhhht! Great post. I'm going to keep my eye (/ears) out for her!

  2. She is def a great voice. Her singing LTWYL is awesome. I am also very much in love with the Em & Dre track as well.
