New Music: Skylar Grey – ‘Dance Without You’ [Snippet]

Dance Without You

You’ve heard her on Diddy-Dirty Money’s “Coming Home,” Dr. Dre’s “I Need a Doctor,” and Lupe Fiasco’s “Words I Never Said,” now Skylar Grey introduces herself on her buzz single “Dance Without You.” The singer-songwriter, who previously recorded under the name Holly Brook, is gearing up for the release of her Wonderland Music/Interscope debut this fall. She teases with a 30-second snippet of the drum-heavy Alex Da Kid production. The full song will premiere next Tuesday followed by an official first single later in the month.

    @Uhm, LMFAO get a life man. I didn’t see anything emo about her. I find funny that some (very idiotic) people relate black clothes with emo… I wonder if they’d consider Freddy Mercury emo now, because I remember seeing him using black nail polish with black clothes on stage.

    Ehh, from the 30 second preview, this buzz single sounds disappointing compared to her work with Diddy, Em, Tip, & Lupe. I’ll reserve full judgement for when the full thing drops, still love Skylar though, and am reserving hopes for the first official single

  10. listen

    def doesn’t sound radio friendly. what void is she filling? is she even culturally relevant? very important questions to answer before trying to break a new artist in this tough market.

    Is she depressed, or am I missing something?

    Well, is she urban? cause she doesn’t sound like it. If she releases emo music then rap-up should not feature her. Just like with Lady Gaga. Shes not urban but rap-up keep on featuring her.Please stop :)

    Sounds good.

    i think that she shuold try doing some trip/hop stuff. her pop hooks are all the same and her previous album (as Holly Brook) is boring. :/

    I feel that almost 90% of the people who posted above this message are close minded BLACK people who don’t like opening their minds to anything different. #JustSaying.
    I personally find this teaser to be dope & I see greatness for her future. She is bringing something different to the table. I think the song sounds hot. OPEN your fucking MINDS people. It’s 2011, not 1930. 0_0

    def interesting….AND we heard about a few seconds so no judgement please…

    I respect this girl so much for she did this last year and even before….

    ANYWAY, the talent she has shouldn’t be ruined by trying to be “strange”…don’t like this genre of music…

    we’ll see … but what’s sure is: she’s TALENTED and alex da kid (that I hate, such an asshole) is a monster…like…SERIOUSLY, they are gifted
