Roc Nation songstress Justine Skye taps buzzing R&B newcomer Arin Ray for her brand new single, “Build.”
On the lightly-produced track, Justine shows off her vocal growth as an artist while showcasing her attitude and spirit. Tapping into throwback R&B grit punctuated by sparse guitar and a simmering groove, the personal song exudes confidence and self-assurance. Arin’s soulful deliver sonically compliments Justine’s vibe!
“How many times have you sat there and wished you could build a person who is ideal for you—or what you think is ideal in your head?” asks Justine Skye. “At the conclusion of the song, I realize you can’t build the perfect person, because there is no perfect person. What you have to do is make sure you’re perfect for yourself. Since I can’t build a man, I’m going to work on who I am. That’s the moral of every relationship. I need to focus on what’s going on with Justine Skye before I can help someone else change whatever demons are going on with them. I have to fix me.”
We can celebrate the fact that Justine wants to work on herself to be a better person, but she also needs to know that even one’s self isn’t perfect. Flaws are what makes us unique beings.
A visual for “Build” is scheduled for later this month, and will spotlight the challenging true experiences that will give fans a glimpse into the songstress’ life like they’ve never seen before.
“Build” paves the way for her forthcoming EP, Fall For It, set to drop this year.
