When we heard that Eminem was executive producing Skylar Grey‘s forthcoming second studio album “Don’t Look Down“, we were slightly surprised, but given his recent form we figured it could be a potential masterstroke if pulled off correctly. After hearing “C’mon Let Me Ride” (the first single from the album), it seems that we may have been wrong.
J.R. Rotem has been relatively quiet recently, but he was enlisted as lead producer for the single which heavily samples Queen‘s single, “Bicycle Race“. Unfortunately it samples it in the worst way possible.
I could be proved wrong once again, as worse singles have reached #1 on the charts, but it’s just something about that bassline that just makes me want to pull my hair out. Awful.
