Skylar Grey on Nicki Minaj Collaboration 'Bed Of Lies': 'It's a Nice Contrast to Her Other Singles'

“She kind of poured her heart out on the verses,” Grey recently told Billboard of Minaj’s verses on the heartfelt song. “I personally think as a fan it’s a nice contrast to her other singles on the record. You get to see another side of her.”

Grey said “Bed of Lies” was nearly a year ago. “Then she picked it up and wrote her verses on it. Luckily, she liked the demo of it enough to keep me on the song. I knew it was maybe gonna happen, but she released a lot of different singles first. So I didn’t really know when she was gonna drop this song.”

“Bed of Lies” is the fourth single from Minaj’s forthcoming album, The Pinkprint, scheduled for release on Dec. 15 through Young Money/Cash Money.
