Skylar Grey, Don’t Look Down, and Eminem | Rolling Stone ::
“….Eminem has faith in Grey, as well. “When I was working on Recovery, I was introduced to Skylar by Alex Da Kid and I was blown away with her talent as both a songwriter and vocalist,” says the rapper in a press release. “This album is really going to give her a chance to connect with the fans who probably know her music but might not know her yet. I think they will be as impressed as I am.”
The title of Don’t Look Down comes from the song “Tower,“ one of four holdovers from INVINSIBLE, an album she originally intended to release as her debut under the Skylar Grey moniker (it was ultimately scrapped). “I think a song that can make it through the past year that I’ve had of writing new songs and throwing ones away is worth having the album title named after,” she says.
“I put out [the single] ‘Invisible’ and I was feeling like I was so busy promoting an album and a song and I felt like I hadn’t finished my album yet,” she says. “So I kind of took a step back and had a conversation with Jimmy [Iovine] and he was totally on my side. He said, ‘Look, this is your first album; it has to be exactly what you want it to be.’ So we mutually agreed to slow down the whole process and let me take my time finishing the songs until I felt like it was there.”….”
