Justine Skye shows why she is a rising superstar in the R&B game with her new ‘Bare With Me’ EP

Justine Skye has been one of the most intriguing R&B acts to become virally popular in the last couple of years. Her overall sound and style is very modern and Neo-R&B(not sounding too different from artists like Frank Ocean or Jhene Aiko), but her voice is so retro. Her voice reminds me of a lot of the music of this genre that you would hear in the early 2000s; this vocal style is delightfully out of place in this day and age.

While her voice is reminiscent of R&B music from a different time, the instrumentals that she uses are so modern, sometimes even futuristic. She combines the popular sounds of today such as trap, reggaeton, and electro-pop all into one, creating an especially unique sound because her voice is so cool and different. It is pretty tough to do so, but if I had to pick favorite songs from this EP, it would probably be ‘Maybe’ and ‘Bulletproof.’ They both really exemplify that modern yet nostalgic feel Justine excels at.
