Skylar Grey Debuts "C'mon Let Me Ride" Video and Digital Single

David RoemerSkylar Grey reinterprets trailer park chic for her video with Eminem, "C'mon Let Me Ride." 

On Tuesday, the singer premiered her suggestive, expletive-laced video showcasing a badlands fantasy world which, she says, is all about the sarcasm.  The single is also now available online from digital retailers.

Shot in Em's hometown of Detroit, the video opens with Skylar riding through the park on a customize bicycle with antlers for handlebars as the neighbors watch.  She sings "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," to her cowboy-hat wearing love interest.  Unfortunately for Skylar, he's preoccupied by the women on the pages of a naughty magazine.  When the women come to life, they are tortured by Skylar and her alter ego Dr. Grey, who performs botched plastic surgery.

Eminem also rides into town on his own tricked out, two-seater bike.  Em raps and sings excerpted lyrics from "Bicycle Race," the song from the legendary rockers Queen.

Initially in the video, Skylar is seen wearing jeans, a flannel shirt and cap, or camoflage shorts and midriff vest.  However, she urges viewers to "Take a close look at the scene where I’m wearing a very girly sexy polka-dot outfit because it’s not likely to happen again."  Skylar adds, "For anyone who didn't already figure out how sarcastic the song is, the video certainly makes it clear," and showcases the sense of humor she shares with Eminem. 

"C'mon Let Me Ride" is the first single from Skylar's upcoming debut album, Don't Look Down, which is due in stores sometime in the spring.  Of course, this isn't the first collabo for Skylar and Eminem who is executive producing Don't Look Down.  Skylar co-wrote Em's hit with Rihanna, "Love the Way You Lie."
