Her forthcoming debut disc Don’t Look Down boasts not just an executive producing credit from Em, but he’s also lending a verse to her lead single “C’mon Let Me Ride” and it’s a total 180-degree from the moody, cloudy sound we’re accustomed to from Skylar.
Here on “Ride” she’s taking a stab at the music industry’s sex-obsessed culture—a very tongue-in-cheek (haha) lick that’s superficially surface on purpose. Kind of like what Jewel attempted with “Intuition,” except here Skylar is way more successful.
The beat has a ‘90s lean to it, catchy, upbeat, but with a subversive attitude; just let yourself get hit over the head by all the sexually euphemistic visuals. Check it out above.
