Justine Skye had a festive 2014, musically, and now she’s basking in her productivity through the holiday season. With only two major celebrations to engage in before 2015, we chatted with the “Collide” singer about what she plans on doing the last two weeks of the year.

VIBE Vixen: What are some gifts you like to give (or receive) for the holidays?
Justine Skye: You can not go wrong with cozy socks. [I] love socks. I’m also really into sweaters, especially from stores like TopShop or just a basic plain, unisex sweater. Headphones are also a great gift. People listen to music everyday—at least I do—and a good pair of headphones really make the music better and can set any mood.
Do you have a favorite holiday film?
I don’t really watch too much television and movies, but my friends have me watching The Grinch this year, so I’m starting to memorize all the words to that. We watch it all the time and I’m kind of into it. I realize though it’s kind of inappropriate at times—to be a children’s film—but all children’s cartoons are like that for real.
How about a favorite holiday song?
Actually, Alvin & The Chipmunks Christmas CD is my favorite holiday album. I listened to it all the time as a child and it brings back good memories so that’s actually one of my favorites. Its really good.
What are some holiday traditions in your family?
My family is in New York (Brooklyn), and every year my family gets together and we make a Jamaican rum cake, so I’m excited for that! But for the most part we always get together, make the cake, and also play a lot of games. We play monopoly and board games together. Although they don’t let me play cards, since I’m kind of bad at playing, they just make me sit back and watch. So I’m excited to spend time with them and also get some eggnog. Love eggnog actually.
Since the New Year arrives a week after Christmas, any resolutions you’d like to share?
Literally the day after Christmas I’m off to L.A to work on some new music, so I guess I’d say my resolution or goal is just to remain focused on my career and continue to follow my dreams. I also want to not get into any drama and stay focused on my music and building my Unicorn Army! But yeah, just be on the look out for some of my new music coming soon, and you can download my single that’s out now called “Collide” featuring Tyga. It’s perfect for this winter/cuffing season. Happy Holidays !
