Justine Skye Releases First Single As Independent Artist, “Maybe”

Cover

The sensual song is an Afro beats/RnB hybrid.

Justine Indira Skyers, known professionally as Justine Skye, is the singer, songwriter, actress, and model who initially found fame through Tumblr, and went on to develop herself in the music industry, signing with Atlantic Records at the tender age of 19. She recently appeared on GoldLink‘s highly acclaimed Diaspora album, appearing as the face (and body) behind the cover work as well. She also very recently detached herself from her label’s name to venture out as an independent artist. And to mark her newfound independence from a big label, she’s released the impossibly soft, yet sensual track “Maybe.” The song sees production from Dre Skull, who has previously worked with big names like PARTYNEXTDOOR, Drake, and Wizkid. Beyond just music, Skye is also set to appear in BET’s Irv Gotti directed, anthology series, Tales.The song is reminiscent of Skye’s usual sweet and seductive sound, but you can see the slight difference between it and her older work. Defying her usual style, the track balances between RnB and Afrobeats, delivering quite the vibe. Skye croons about a clear sexual chemistry, hinting at what is to come next as she delivers simple, yet effective lyricism throughout the mellow track. Check it out below!Quotable Lyrics:

I’m feelin’ I got your vibe
Big energy tonight
You are the reason why I’m high (High)
So take out your wings and fly (Take out your wings)
Know I’m the reason why (Know I’m the reason)
Baby

Cassie Shares “Speaking Of” Track

Cassie issues another single.

Cassie continues her string of loose drops, returning this week with her “Speaking Of” track. The song arrives as the latest release of her #FreeFridays series and on it, the songstress coolly purrs over the Chris N Teeb-produced backdrop to detail the need for specific attention: “I picture myself on you when I’m not with you/And baby that’s all I really wanna do, is be on you.”The trail of releases is all set to lead into Cassie’s long-awaited sophomore album if all goes as planned. It will mark the first full-length album from the singer since her 2006 self-titled debut.”I would say that my creative process has changed since working with a new team,” Cassie recently told L’Officiel of the creative process behind her new music. “I feel supported so I make decisions based on what’s best for me. I used to spend the most time overthinking the smallest things and always worrying about how people felt that I neglected how I really felt and what would make me happy. I wasn’t creating from the heart. I’m still making sure that things are well thought out, but I’m doing what makes sense for my life. I’m just a woman coming into my own learning to trust myself. It’s empowering.”

Quotable Lyrics

I can cool you off with this water babe, you let me know
Do you want a taste of flavor, baby let’s go
We don’t have to argue
I don’t wanna argue with you
Baby I just wanna heart you
