Roc Nation/Republic Records’ very own, Justine Skye, has just released her debut album, ULTRAVIOLET, and we can’t get enough of it!
The 10-track project has contributions from WizKid, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Hitmaka and more. And yes, it does include the track, “Back for More” which features Jeremih. Oh and the visual features Rotimi. *heart eyes*
Before the album dropped, Justine spoke to MTV about it and explained that she hoped that people would respect her more as an artist:
“I feel like, with this project being by debut album, the point that I want to get across is that I am an artist. Because I feel like something that I battle with in my career is that people don’t realize that. They see me, like, on storefronts or in videos or in pictures, and [they’re] just like, ‘Oh, she’s really beautiful. She’s this pretty girl.’ And it’s just like, ‘Thank you. I appreciate that so much, but this is my music. Check that out, too.’”
To celebrate the release of ULTRAVIOLET, Justine teamed up with Tumblr to deliver the album directly to her fans. This past Saturday, Justine invited all her fans from her Tumblr days to come through and watch her perform. And of course, the place was packed! So many of Justine’s fans from far and near showed up to celebrate her success with and it absolutely amazing!
