Skylar Grey has been a favorite of ours for years now, so we were stoked to hear that she was coming for radio dominance with her provocative-sounding new single “C’mon Let Me Ride,” including a sexy new look and a guest spot from Eminem, who has signed on to executive-produce Grey’s debut LP Don’t Look Down. Skylar dropped the lyric video for “Ride” and it’s — well, pretty much exactly what you’d expect. The singsong chorus is infectious as a nursery rhyme, but we’re pretty sure she’s singing about riding something other than a bike.
As promised, Em sings the hook to Queen‘s “Bicycle Race” (in his Pee-wee Herman voice), although thankfully, he drops the shtick for his rap. Maybe it’s just us, but “Ride” feels a little dated, like a late-90s Sugar Ray song or something. Then again, the ’90s are back, so maybe Grey’s got exactly the right idea. Hear it up top, and check out the single’s animated artwork after the jump.
