Skylar Grey reveals “Dance Without You” buzz single from debut album
May 23, 2011 by Beatweek
Skylar Grey has peeled back another layer of the mystery surrounding her debut album as she’s revealed the title of her first single: Dance Without You. Referring to it as a “buzz single” ahead of what will be the official lead single, Grey only shared the album artwork for the single, leaving fans to wonder when exactly they’ll get to hear it and, oh by the way, what the song sounds like. The singer has thus far been better known for songs she’s collaborated on (I Need A Doctor with Eminem and Dr. Dre, Coming Home with Diddy Dirty Money, Things I Never Said with Lupe Fiasco) and those she’s written for others (Love The Way You Lie), but is now striking out on her own with a solo album about which very little is known.
The secrecy surrounding Dance Without You and the entire album is in keeping with the theme of Skylar Grey’s career thus far: pictures of her have been rare, her vocals were portrayed by someone else in the I Need A Doctor video, and even during her Grammy performance of the song, she was largely in the shadows. Even her most-used profile picture only shows her face lit from one side. But now fans at least have the name of one of her songs to work with, if not the song itself, and that’s one more piece to the Skylar Grey puzzle than they had yesterday.
