Justine Skye – Don’t Think About It


In 2015, the Brooklyn, NY native notched two million-plus views on her YouTube channel before releasing hits such as “Collide” [feat. Tyga] and “I’m Yours,” [feat. Vic Mensa], which would both rack up over 8 million Spotify streams in less than one year’s time. Her success not only grabbed the attention of fans, but also of the press as she has received acclaim courtesy of Vogue, V Magazine, Billboard, Fader, and more. Most recently, Justine is featured on “Overtime” from ScHoolboy Q’s chart-dominating Blank Face LP alongside Miguel, and has ignited stages at Apple Music Fest in London and Made In America 2016. Justine’s debut single for Roc Nation Records, “U Don’t Know” [feat. Wizkid] offers a proper introduction to her singular sound, merging Afrobeat energy, reggae flavor, and her powerhouse vocals.

Justine Skye tagged along with her mother, an entertainment lawyer, to a music panel held by performance rights organization BMI. During the question-and-answer session, Justine surprised everyone in attendance by asking to sing. In front of various music executives, she performed a cover of Sam Sparro’s “Black and Gold.” The Brooklyn native subsequently took singing lessons and honed her songwriting, then worked with August Rigo (Justin Bieber, One Direction, Musiq [Soulchild]) and Eric Hudson (Kanye West, Diddy, August Alsina). Their sessions led to Everyday Living, a confident contemporary R&B EP released on Atlantic in August 2013. The brief collection featured a cover of Aaliyah’s “I Don’t Wanna.” In August 2014, Justine returned with the slow-jam single “Collide,” a DJ Mustard production that involved a guest verse from Tyga.
