KOKOnista of The Day: Justine Skye Is Melanin Drip And Every Girl’s Dream BFF

Singer, songwriter, and model Justine Skye is known for her dance-oriented R&B and hip-hop-influenced sound.


Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1995, Skye first gained notice in her teens when she tagged along with her mother, an entertainment lawyer, to a music panel held by performance rights organisation BMI.

The story goes that after two years in high school, Justine (born Justine Indira Skyers) left to be homeschooled and focus on her music professionally. 
She gained notoriety on Tumblr in the pre-VSCO girl days of Alexis Ren and Staz Lindes. Her passion was always music, so in addition to YouTube covers she recorded a mixtape called Skye High, which got her signed to Atlantic Records and then Roc Nation.

Within a few years, she had gone from a virtually unknown aspiring artist to a purpled-haired “unicorn,” spotted at high-end fashion events, attending exclusive parties, and reeling in friends such as the Jenners and Hadids. Justine is the ultimate friendship goals for any girl.
