Skylar Grey heads to the backwoods of Detroit in the video for her first single “C’mon Let Me Ride” featuring Eminem. The singer-songwriter has revealed photos from the shoot, which took place last month in Em’s hometown.
Skylar shows a sexier side, wearing a bra and trucker hat as she lounges in a chair. Some of the residents are seen gathering around a BBQ and grilling a squirrel, while one older lady throws up the middle finger.
The song, produced by Alex Da Kid, samples Queen’s “Bicycle Race,” and will hit iTunes on December 11. “The song is something totally unexpected from me,” said Skylar. “Sometimes I can’t even believe that it came out of my mouth. But it did. And soon, it will be in your ears.”
Eminem has signed on to executive produce Skylar’s forthcoming debut Don’t Look Down, due next spring.
