New York-based Jamaican artist Justine Skye is surely no stranger to the worlds of entertainment or social capital. The young creative has been fostering her music since the ripe age of 14 and utilized her massive Tumblr following to aid in the jumpstart of her musical career. Debuting her first mixtape Sky High in 2012, Skye caught the attention of major labels with her sheer talent and extensive following. So much so that by 2013, Skye had her first record label deal with Atlantic Records. Three years later, she secured her second record label deal with Jay-Z's entertainment label Roc Nation, the label associated with her 2018 release ULTRAVIOLET . Now the multi-faceted artisan has gone independent with her label Nynetineth and released her phenomenal six-track EP BARE WITH ME August of 2019.
The budding socialite incorporates salacious jazz undertones and that dreamy 90's R&B nostalgic feel with her Carribean roots in this new EP, making for a truly unique experience that will have you streaming her project on loop. Skye is continuing to broaden her horizons with the production and adaptation of her music, working with London-based producers Ari Pensmith and P2J, as well as the illustrious James Fauntleroy to inhibit such growth.
Justine Skye's remarkable talent doesn't end with her superior vocal skills. You can catch Skye on your television screens, appearing in eminent works such as Irv Gotti's BET television series, Tales, the Bruce Leddy directed remake of How High 2 and soon-to-be-released Keanu Reeves directed movie Already Gone.
Needless to say, Justine Skye is definitely a young innovator to keep watch for.
