Skylar Grey CXVII :: Album Feature Speculation+Interview w/ BMI | Video
After Rap-Up posted their video interview with Ms. Grey, interest arose about who exactly the unknown featured artist on her upcoming album is. PopDust just posted an article speculating on who they think the feature might be – check out the list below, and click its title to read their full article on the upcoming album!
Skylar Grey Album Feature Speculation | PopDust ::
“….who are we as bloggers to leave it at that without total speculation? Here are four people we think could be potential collaborators, from most plausible to least:
Plausible: Marilyn Manson
Marilyn Manson is in fact the frontrunner. This makes more sense than you’d think:
Exhibit A: Manson has a 2011 album in the works, in case you’re not up on his continued music career. What better timing to start showing up on more famous people’s tracks? After all, if Skylar Grey can help the world stop forgetting about Dre (whose Detox is about eight years gestating now), Manson’s not entirely a remote possibility.
Exhibit B: Manson, Grey and Alex da Kid are apparently bizarro BFFs, having been spotted together in pictures and tweets. If pictures are gonna lead to collaborations, though, we’d much rather hear a (completely hypothetical) Lindsay Lohan track.
Still plausible: Nikki Sixx
Again, this didn’t come completely out of nowhere; the Twitter version of the story is that the Mötley Crüe co-founder heard Grey at the Grammys, liked it, and offered to work on a song with her. And she’s also got a new album in the works.
Probably only plausible on paper: Avril Lavigne, Christina Aguilera
Now we’re reduced to mining Alex Da Kid’s other collaborations. The producer worked with Lavigne on a couple tracks that didn’t make the cut for Goodbye Lullaby, and Xtina shows up on T.I.’s “Castle Walls.” What does that mean for Skylar Grey? Not much, we suspect. The gloss of Lavigne’s newest stuff is Grey’s sonic opposite, and Aguilera is her vocal opposite, as Grey herself has admitted. But they’re still closer to the Alex camp than some.”
BMI has now also released their video interview from the May 17th BMI Pop Awards, talking with Ms. Grey about how and why she writes lyrics, “Love The Way You Lie“ (for which BMI presented her with an award), and about being supported by BMI over the years. View it via YouTube below!
