Album Cover: Skylar Grey – ‘Don’t Look Down’

Don't Look Down

Skylar Grey has been a bad, bad girl. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter unveils the dark and twisted cover for her debut Don’t Look Down. A sexy Skylar, who turns 27 today, models lingerie as she leans over a laundry machine with a bloodied axe sitting on top.

Her sick sense of humor can be heard on the album, due this spring on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope. Eminem will serve as executive producer and guests on the first single “C’mon Let Me Ride.”

“Putting out a debut album is a bit scary—I want it to be just right so I took some extra time to finish it. Eminem’s increased involvement has been such a blessing; I’m getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust,” said Skylar, who penned Eminem’s 2010 hit “Love the Way You Lie.”

Video: Skylar Grey f/ Eminem – ‘C’mon Let Me Ride’

Eminem and Skylar Grey

Skylar Grey is good at being bad in the naughty video for “C’mon Let Me Ride” featuring Eminem. The singer-songwriter sheds her dark image and shows a sexier side in the provocative clip, which was shot at a trailer park in Michigan. Skylar works up a sweat as a scantily-clad lumberjack, while Slim Shady makes a comical cameo.

“I can be really goofy and I know that a lot of people think I’m just dark and sad and melancholy all the time, but that’s just one huge part of me,” explained the Grammy-nominated Skylar. “I’m also really silly and I have a really dirty mind. I can’t help it. It just goes there.”

The video also carries a deeper message. “I’m kinda poking fun at the overly sexualized aspects of today’s culture and music and everything.”

“C’mon Let Me Ride” is the first single off Skylar’s KIDinaKORNER/Interscope debut Don’t Look Down. Eminem will executive produce the project, which is due next spring.

“Why does everyone think I’m from a fu**ing trailer park? Why can’t I not break that stereotype?” laughs Em. “I’ve lived in them, many of them, for years. But that doesn’t mean I’m from a trailer park.”
