It was almost two years ago to the day that the world was truly introduced to Skylar Grey when she provided the vocals to Dr. Dre’s I Need A Doctor alongside Eminem. So the timing couldn’t be more perfect for the two to re-unite on Skylar’s new single C’mon Let Me Ride. Produced by Alex Da Kid, who also produced (you guessed it) I Need a Doctor, Let Me Ride features a brighter and more pop beat than we’re used to from Alex as he uses Queen’s Bicycle Race for inspiration. Similarly Skylar’s vocals are lighter and more playful than we’re used to hearing…although a schizophrenicly humorous verse from Em is certainly nothing new. If this one has you down to ride with Skylar and Slim Shady you’re in luck. Em will be executive producing Grey’s upcoming Don’t Look Down album, due out this coming spring.
