Keeping in line with the title of her recently released EP, Bare With Me, singer/songwriter Justine Skye debuted a bare-bones version and video for her melody “Maybe.”
The visual begins with Skye trying to find the right words to say and the right melody to perform. With a cup of tea, scribbles of thoughts unsaid, Skye finally finds the words to express and belts out a tune of passion. In an interview with DJ Booth, Skye said her recent EP felt like a warm welcome to the type of music she enjoys making.
“This is the reintroduction to me as an artist. A lot of people know my name and face, but they don’t know my sound,” she said. “This is me expressing the direction I’m moving forward in and reclaiming my space as an artist. There wasn’t fear, at all. I was more excited. I’ve never been more confident in my music than I am now.”
In mid-January, the Brooklyn native embarked on a journey to the world of makeup. Skye teamed up with cosmetics line The Lip Bar to release The Island Gyal Collection, which Skye said is an “ode to my Jamaican heritage.” The line features lipgloss, lipstick, eye palettes, and eyeliner.
