After much talk on social media recently about Eminem’s encouragement, today Skylar Grey released a duet with the Detroit hip-hop icon in “Kill For You.” With Eminem both handling production and contributing a verse, the eerily cinematic track features a sound-effect laden beat that’s Eminem’s known for, with Grey’s haunting vocals adding a dream-like gravity to the affair.
Collaborations with Eminem have been fairly rare, but Em and Skylar Grey collaborated several times over the years. She’s one of the few who can claim she was on Dr. Dre’s now mythical Detox album after “I Need a Doctor,” but she’s taken up referring to him as Marshall in interviews.
“Kill For You” can be found on Skylar Grey’s third album, Natural Causes, which drops today. Skylar performs Sunday, October 2 at Skyway Theatre’s Studio B.
