THE MOGUL MINUTE
Brooklyn, NY singer and songwriter Justine Skye is hailed by Wonderland Magazine as a “musical prodigy on the rise." Her latest EP 8 Ounces, was produced entirely by Grammy award winning producer and artist The Dream and was met with critical acclaim by Billboard, Fader, Genius and more . With signature purple hair , the Caribbean swagger, and fashion-forward style , Justine Skye is guaranteed to captivate you. Her new single “Back For More” released under Roc Nation/Republic featured on her debut album, produced by Hit-Maka and AyoNKeyz. The track is sexy and has a 2004 classic mix with a new school 2017 flavor. Justine said “Hitmaka and AyoNKeyz sent the song over and it spoke volumes to what was really going on with me. Jeremih is a dope artist. The hook of the song was always meant for a guy to sing and we felt like Jeremih would execute it the best, and he added the perfect vibe to the track." Her unique & eye catching GIF lyric video, directed by Ant Blue Jr. and shot in her hometown New York City. I'm looking forward to her debut album and so much more.
