Skylar Grey releases video for new single “Moving Mountains”

Skylar Grey has made a name for herself in the hip-hop world for the better part of a decade. She has earned Grammy nominations for her collaboration with rap artists. She was a writer for “Love The Way You Lie,” the Rihanna and Eminem song that received a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year and Best Rap Song. Her collaboration with Dr. Dre and Eminem for “I Need a Doctor” earned her nominations for Best Rap/Song Collaboration and Best Rap Song. She has also been a featured artist for many hip hop heavy weights songs, including T.I., Diddy and Nicki Minaj.

Following her previous solo projects, the albums “Like Blood Like Honey” and “Don’t Look Down,” she has released the single “Moving Mountains.” The video, filmed in Utah, where Grey now calls home, has the well known collaborator solo, attacking a snowy mountain climb on her own. Grey soulfully sings about going with the flow and living in the moment.

It will be interesting to see what direction Grey goes next. While this track definitely has a folkish vibe to it, I wonder how inspired she will be by her new home in Utah, or if she will continue the hip-hop collaboration that she is known for.

[Playlist]-Best Songs of 2015

While many have already posted their favorite songs of 2015, I waited until 2015 had officially concluded. As we saw the last few days of 2015 included new music from the likes of Kanye, The Weeknd and Travis Scott, so I wanted any music that was released in 2015 to have a fair chance.

This playlist includes a lot of new artists like Alessia Cara, Fetty Wap and Bryson Tiller, but also people who have been in the game for a few years, like Drake, Big Sean and Jeremih.

Although I have been listening to The Weeknd for years, he had a huge years with several big songs. I choose The Hills to be on the playlist because it is a very unexpected song to be on top of the Billboard Hot 100.

Listen to the playlist below and tell me some of your favorite songs from 2015.
