When dark and mysterious doesn’t work, turn to what usually does: selling sex. That’s what singer/songwriter Skylar Grey seems to be doing. With her new single, “C’mon Let Me Ride” featuring Eminem, Grey throws away her all-black-everything sound and look and takes on more upbeat pop production and far less clothing (see the above single cover).
The Alex Da Kid-produced track is crammed with sexual innuendos and puns, and even finds Skylar uttering, “c’mon let me ride your bicycle/it’s so fantastical on your bicycle/We could get a little more physical/Baby, after all, it’s only natural,” on the hook. Worse yet, there’s an almost-NSFW lyric video to bring the naughty words to life.
“C’mon Let Me Ride” leads Skylar’s long-delayed, recently re-titled debut album, Don’t Look Down, formerly Invinsible. due in spring 2013. Watch the lyric video for “Ride” below:
