I think they will be as impressed as I am.”

Eminem’s increased involvement has been such a blessing; I’m getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust,” said Grey. “Having written many new songs, the album has become a completely different animal, hence the title change. This with Em, in particular, is very exciting. We have worked on so many serious songs together ““ it’s a nice change of pace to do something fun and sarcastic.”

To me, Skylar Grey represents the embodiment of this principal,” said Alex.
