Skylar Grey “Cannonball Featuring X Ambassadors “Cannonball” KIDInAKorner/Interscope Records

Five-time GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Skylar Grey premieres the video for her new single, “Cannonball,” featuring her KIDinaKORNER/ Interscope Records labelmates X Ambassadors on Vevo. The video was directed by Daniel Carberry and shot in a warehouse in downtown LA.

Says Skylar, “The goal with this video was to use epic imagery to represent the essence of the song, but not necessarily be literal, leaving plenty of room for a viewer’s individual interpretation. I  wanted it to look badass to go with the sound and message of the song which is, ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way.’  As you will see, there are a series of surreal battles- a knight fights a cop, a breakdancer dance battles with Ben Hale from the Navajo tribe, a wolf lays with what remains of his opponent (a single Louboutin) and inspired by my recent obsession with boxing- I get to fight a guy much bigger than me, bronze medal Olympian Tony Jeffries.  Be warned: there’s a lot of blood! But I’m sure you already know, my dark heart has a soft spot for gore.”
