Singer and songwriter Skylar Grey is slowly building up quite a lot of excitement for her next LP Don’t Look Down, with the first single “C’Mon Let Me Ride” being an obvious choice as it boasts a feature from her executive producer Eminem. We’ve got less than a week to wait for the video, but here’s a teaser of what’s to come as the pair ditch the idea of an exotic location and instead use a real trailer park as the video backdrop.
The video was shot in Michigan, and while that is Eminem’s home state, he wanted to point out that he wasn’t in fact from a trailer park,
“Why does everyone think I’m from a fucking trailer park?” He asks, jokingly. “Why can I not break that stereotype? I’ve lived in them, yes, but that doesn’t mean I’m from a trailer park.” Ok, Marshall.
With trailers and American flags setting the scene, Grey dons a trucker cap and crop top to film her part while Em aptly films amongst some bicycles to tie in with his hook. And look out for a member of the trailer park making the most of her moment talking to the cameras, making it what might be the funniest behind the scenes video I’ve seen.
The full video drops December 11th, but for now check out the teaser below.
