Spotlight – Skylar Grey

Meet Skylar Grey, an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. Skylar is best known from the Fort Minor single “Where’d You Go” under the name Holly Brook, and the songwriter for Eminem & Rihanna’s hit “Love The Way You Lie“.

Dirty Money’s “Coming Home”

Coming Home feat. Skylar Gray

Diddy – Dirty Money released the music video for their latest single “Coming Home” last week, but I still wanted to post it here just to discuss the song, which I think is a really good record.

“Coming Home” is the group’s fifth single and my third favorite on the album; my first and second being “Love Come Down” and “Hello Good Morning” ft. T.I.

Diddy makes reference to a popular song in each verse, and the lyrics seem to depict his life over the years. The music video shows Diddy – Dirty Money walking through a desert with the remains of what appears to be a horrible fire.
