Kid Cudi f/ Skylar Grey “Hero”
Two of my favorite voices in the game come together for the first time in “Hero” as Kid Cudi and Skylar Grey contribute this one to the Need For Speed Soundtrack. No surprise here as Cudi is one of the film’s stars (with Aaron Paul, the lead, on the cover above). Cudi kicks it off and handles the first half of the song — his tempo setting the tone and getting better throughout. I felt Skylar took it to another level both lyrically and vocally for the latter half of the record and all in all, it’s an instant *Tibs Fav. and one that I know will grow on me with more listens. Don’t look further for a new track on this Tuesday — my pick of the day, and an output that I feel fans of Cudi and Skylar will enjoy too.
