Skylar even performed alongside a bevy of rap royalty at the Grammys this year, but she was mostly hidden from view!

The 25-year-old singer explains that the mystery is all part of her master plan:

That [Skylar’s Grammys performance] was actually intentional on my part…It’s been part of our whole plan in my roll out. At first, people didn’t know what I looked like and they were like, “Is she black? Is she white? Is she ugly? Is she fat? Why aren’t they showing this girl’s pictures?” And so we just want to reveal little bits at a time. We don’t want to just give it all away.

But this isn’t Skylar’s first success in the music business. She’s been singing since the age of 5 and sung the hook on the 2006 [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Fort Minor[/lastfm] song, “Where’d You Go?”

She also released her solo album Like Blood Like Honey that same year. Back then, she went by the name [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Holly Brook[/lastfm], but that didn’t last for long:

I changed my name, man. I got sick of Holly…She was too sweet and let people walk all over her. I kind of retreated into the woods and became a completely different person over the past couple of years.
