You may, or may not be aware of Skylar Grey previously known as Holly Brook who featured on Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda's side project Fort Minor, but she's had her work most likely playing around in your subconcious for the past 6 months or so. She was the one who penned Eminem and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie," which has now been Grammy nominated to boot. We also recently heard her vox on the Dre and Em's track "I Need A Doctor" earlier in the week and just yesterday heard her in Lupe's new track! So get familiar.
Today we have her original piano driven version of "Love The Way You Lie" a track she originally wrote for herself but upon RiRi's people hearing it they just had to have it for their album. Quite right too given it's catchy nature. Check it out in full up at the top and look out for her own album in the not so distant future. As PopEater reports she stated, in relation to the album:
"We're in the very early stages...I can tell you that we're probably going to do a few songs that are similar to my hooks on these songs, but full-length versions. The sound of the 'I Need a Doctor' chorus, I'm probably gonna have some songs that similarly sound like that, but instead of rapping, it'll be me singing the verses." Watch this space and keep your eyes peeled for this talent coming to the radio waves near you soon.
