[NEW MUSIC] Skylar Grey – Love The Way You Lie (Original Demo) by wearesme

On the back of the success of Rihannas ‘Love The Way You Lie’ which she both wrote and performed piano on; it has been a huge year for Skylar Grey so far. She has featured on Diddy Dirty Money’s ‘Coming Home’, Dr Dre & Eminem’s ‘I Need A Doctor’ and most recently Lupe Fiasco’s brand new single ‘Words I Never Said’.

Speaking to PopEater she spoke about ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and revealed that she wanted to let her fans hear the original demo which she sang.

“I wrote the demo initially for myself because I thought, ‘Oh, I have this big song, and now I have a little bit of a launching pad to put out my own stuff.’ As soon as Rihanna and her team heard my demo, they were like, ‘Oh we want it for Rihanna’s album,’ so I had to make the decision if I was going to let them have it or not. But I did and so it was on Rihanna’s album, too. I still felt like it would be cool to let people hear my version of it, too.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

We heard it was in the pipeline for her new album ‘Loud’, and here it is. This is a slower ballady version to the original. Until Em comes in that is!

Eminem talks recovery by wearesme

As we all know from the hype, everyone’s favourite white boy rapper, Marshall Mathers – otherwise known as Eminem, is back with a new album and single ‘Not Afraid’.
After scrapping plans to release part two of ‘Relapse’, which was widely expected to feature songs that didn’t make the first album, Eminem got to work on ‘Recovery’.

Following the release of the new video for the lead single ‘Im Not Afraid’, Em confirmed the album will feature some very big guest stars. Pink has already been confirmed following a leak of the track ‘Wont Back Down’ and we can now add Rihanna to the bill.

Speaking to Radio 1 following his brilliant Live Lounge session, the rapper praised Pink’s involvement with the sessions, claiming that she is a “rebel”.
“I’ve always respected what she does” the hip hop star claimed. “When we did the track I heard her on it and knew vocally she’d smash it.” Rihanna guest stars on a track named ‘Love The Way You Lie’ which he feels “is more special with her on it”.

‘Recovery’ will be Em’s 7th studio album and from the early signs of the new tracks (not to mention killing every track hes featured on lately) he’s on form. Suffering from depression and drug addiction before the release of ‘Relapse’ the rapper now seems to be in better spirits. “I’m definitely in a much better place than I was a few years ago”. Lets hope it stays that way.

‘Recovery’ is out June 21st.
