Skylar Grey Talks About Writing “Walk on Water”, Performing It Live and Other Topics

Skylar Grey recently spoke with XXL Mag and discussed her work on the “Walk on Water” track off Eminem’s REVIVAL album. Below are a few highlights from the interview…

On writing Walk on Water: “I was so happy when I found out he wrote to it, and when I heard Beyoncé cut the vocals, as she is a god-like figure in this world also. It all came together perfectly.”

On being shy: “There was a point where I was so shy that it came across that I was cold or hard to work with earlier on in my career,” she admits. “And then, as I worked with people like Eminem [and] Dr. Dre, I noticed how warm they were in the studio. I realized I had to get better in that department [laughs].”

On performing Walk on Water, Stan and Love the Way You Lie on SNL: “It was such an honor to be able to perform ‘Walk on Water’ with Eminem,” the 31-year-old reveals. “You know I can’t compete with Bey at all [laughs], but she sounds amazing on the record, and I am so stoked that she cut it.”
