What Hit in 2011: Guest spot in Dr. Dre's "I Need a Doctor" feat. Eminem
What's Next: Her debut full-length album "Invisible"
Lowdown: Skylar Grey was a somewhat "invisible" presence in one of the highest-profile songs last year, having penned Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie." But her chops as a songwriter have pushed her further into the limelight in 2011, with a guest spot in Lupe Fiasco's "Words I Never Said" and in Dre's "comeback" single (sigh). Her solo track "Invisible" is a good start on her debut album, and it doesn't hurt that Alex da Kid is the producing power behind the forthcoming album of the same name.
