Songwriter Skylar Grey is breaking out on her own with a little help from Eminem. “C’mon Let Me Ride” is a girl’s plea for her crush to let her ride…his bicycle. Only this boy and his two-wheel choice of transportation lives in the trailer park. Skylar’s grunge, edgy vibe causes her to stick out like a sore thumb from the other girls in the neighborhood with their faux tans and skimpy bikinis.
Finally she takes matters into her own hands while her imagined lover fantasizes from the dolled up Skylar plastered across the pages of a men’s calendar. Climbing on top of her crush makes him think she wants to seduce him, and she does, according to the lyrics. Instead she takes the cash. Chicks in bikinis continue to run through the ‘hood. Eminem gets on his bike for a ride too. Other weird miscellaneous things are going on simultaneously. Eminem and Skylar are a match made in music collabo heaven for one reason: Both are completely comfortable (and swagged out) in their eccentricity. And this video is certainly comprised of all things odd.
