Skylar Grey’s “Dance Without You” Video Shows Her Split Personality Disorder

As we noted with her “Dance Without You” video preview, emerging singer-songwriter Skylar Grey needs a doctor, and she needs one bad. The full visual for the buzz single has premiered, and we’ll warn you that if you’re feeling a bit hungover from 4th of July festivities, the clip might cause you to toss up your breakfast. Watch below at your own risk. We know Skylar is a certified hit-making songwriter, and she’s become one of the most sought-after chorus girls in hip hop and pop. But now the Wisconsin songstress is breaking out of her shell — literally, as you’ll see in her ultra-creepy “Dance Without You” clip — and making a name for herself as an artist unto her own.

Watch the old Skylar writhe around on an examination table until the angry diva within bursts out of her back, Alien-style, and takes over. And we don’t think there are any plucky young space cadets named Ripley around to blow her out of the airlock.

Skylar’s debut LP, the Alex Da Kid-produced Invinsible, is set to arrive this fall.
