I am always excited to hear about new artists. Not only to hear their music but to foresee a career. It’s one thing to see an artist release their first studio album, and it’s another to see it coming from such an exclusive label, Roc Nation, a label founded by Jay-Z.

Reigning from Brooklyn, New York, Justine Skye has been singing for quite some time and her cover of Drake’s “Headlines” garnered her acclaim and over 2 million views on Youtube. Unfortunately, it was not until she released her latest album, “ULTRAVIOLET,” on Apple Music that I explored her talent.

“ULTRAVIOLET” is Skye’s debut album, released on Jan. 19.

Skye has some true talent and a style that’s full of confidence, which adds to her overall ability to produce entertaining music. From the first song on her album, “Wasteland” she showcases her range and versatility.

What I like most about Skye is that although she is an R&B singer, she manages to differentiate her style without stepping outside of her lane. Her music doesn’t sound the same which can be a downfall for many predominantly R&B artists.

Skye is only 22, so what’s most exciting is hearing her rendition of what heartbreak she’s had while still trying to figure out what she wants exactly. Many of the songs on this album explore relationships, love and vulnerability.

I enjoyed the confidence and independence exuded from Skye in songs like “Lil’ Boy” where she says, “No more breathe to waste on you, I had so much faith in you.” I think what this speaks to more than anything is that she’s not willing to settle.

Obviously anything you want will probably take work, but she realizes that the expectation you have for someone doesn’t dictate what you know you deserve.

My favorite songs on the album are “U Don’t Know,” “WasteLand,” “Back For More” and “Don’t Think About It.” I think these songs best showcase Skye’s talent while maintaining a sound that is audibly pleasing.

Jeremih assists Skye on “Back For More,” and they really compliment each other’s style. I think with the combination of song topic and production, this is my favorite song on the album. I can’t think of a better fit for a featuring artist on this style of song.

I think Skye has the potential to really take off. With the help of her label, I feel like her sound can be refined in a way that will increase her appeal. I’m interested in the future projects from Skye and how she will grow.
