Over the last few days 2dopeboyz.com has been putting up some of the ultra mysterious Skylar Grey’s songs. She has been making quite a name for herself over the last year. She landed a feature on Diddy-Dirty Money’s smash hit, “Coming Home”, made an appearance on a Dr. Dre track, “I Need A Doctor”, and sang on Lupe’s newest single, “Words I Never Said”. Not only has she been on one mega hit and what looks like will be another, she wrote all three versions of “Love The Way You Lie” (pt.1, 2, and the acoustic version), along with “Castle Walls” on T.I.’s album No Mercy. Apparently Lupe wants to make her his female version of Matthew Santos by giving her multiple features on Lasers (I don’t know how much truth there is to this but I hope there is a lot).
Before Skylar became Skylar, she went by the name Holly Brook. She released a solo album named Like Blood Like Honey and worked with a rapper/producer named Apathy along with the group Fort Minor. If you want a great album, go get Like Blood Like Honey, the title track is amazing and her voice is perfect throughout the album. I don’t know why I am so intrigued in her music, maybe its her mysterious ways, but I want an album, hell I would take some of her stuff she made with Apathy and her demos when she first became Skylar Grey. Her version of “Love The Way You Lie” blows Rihanna’s out of the water. She is extremely talented so don’t sleep on her.
