For those that think Skylar Grey’s rise to fame came out of nowhere, think again. Before the songstress was penning songs and crafting hooks for the likes of Eminem, Rihanna, Dr. Dre and most recently Lupe Fiasco, the singer went by the name of Holly Brook earlier in her career, releasing an album and guesting on the Fort Minor hit “Where’d You Go.” In her interview with PopEater she revealed that she originally wrote Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love The Way You Lie” for herself and even offered the demo version as a stream. Read and listen below.

“I really am an artist. I wrote the demo initially for myself because I thought, ‘Oh, I have this big song, and now I have a little bit of a launching pad to put out my own stuff,’” she says. “As soon as Rihanna and her team heard my demo, they were like, ‘Oh, we want it for Rihanna’s album,’ so I had to make the decision if I was going to let them have it or not. But I did and so it was on Rihanna’s album, too”.
