Skylar Grey Signs To Interscope, Preps Album

It's Jimmy Iovine time for the Eminem and Dr. Dre collaborator.

Hip Hop's newest hook girl is gearing up for a solo career.

Skylar Grey has signed to Interscope Records and producer Alex Da Kid's Wonderland Music, reports rap-up.com.

The singer, who has been featured on songs such as Dr. Dre's "I Need a Doctor," featuring Eminem, Lupe Fiasco's "Words I Never Said," and the original version of Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie," is due to release a lead single this spring, with an album to follow this year.

Grey has made two high-profile appearances on stage so far this year, the first of which was for a live rendition of "I Need a Doctor" at last month's Grammy Awards. Yesterday (March 10), she performed the song she co-wrote for Diddy-Dirty Money, "Coming Home," on "American Idol."

“Getting to perform on television with Eminem and Dr. Dre still doesn’t feel real to me and now to perform with Diddy-Dirty Money in the course of a month is unreal,” said Skylar. “I’m really excited about the opportunity to perform on ‘Idol.’ It’s incredible to have all of this leading into my album coming this year—I am so fortunate.”

Alex Da Kid will be producing the album.

    Hopefully this signing doesn't mean she'll be on every single big rap release from here on in because as good as her own music maybe (I don't listen to her), I personally do not want her in my rap songs. imo.

    Skylar Grey (aka holly brook) is a genuine talented singer, and we defintely need more of that in the industry. Just hope the label doesnt try to turn her into another pop manufactured gimmicky artist by trying to change her look to be more sexually appealing (u know the colorful wigs & costumes) and making her beats & voice ridiculously computerized to the point where u cant tell if shes vocally talented or not. Lets hope they let her be her she as much as possible.
