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.”
