The tremendous voice of Skylar Grey has finally found its way into her own music and, consequently, the um… INTERESTING video for her new single “Dance Without You”. Watch Skylar as she makes the transformation from her original form as Holly Brook to the untamed singing alter ego we’ve all grown to love.

Skylar Grey has made a name for herself by appearing on tracks with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dr. Dre[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Diddy[/lastfm] – just to name a few – to get her already blossoming career kick-started.
Her strong voice on the hit songs “I Need A Doctor” by Dr. Dre and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Diddy-Dirty Money[/lastfm]’s “Coming Home” have solidified her as a must have feature, giving plenty of reason to finally release an album of her own. The video to this very dramatic, almost emo-like track is pretty creepy as Skylar is battling with her two personalities as either Holly Brook (her real name) or stage name that seems to have taken over her identity.

The effects in the clip are pretty cool and the song is deep. It’s a great way to kick off the rebirth of her solo career. I give the video an 8 out of 10 – only because it was pretty short and I was kinda hoping for more of a story to go along with the song.
