Justine Skye Explains Why She Prefers Not to Write Music Alone

Justine Skye Explains Why She Prefers Not to Write Music Alone

Justine Skye strikes a graceful pose in her new cover shoot for Rogue Magazine‘s latest issue!

Here’s what the 22-year-old ULTRAVIOLET singer had to share with the mag:

On the notion that having multiple people involved in the songwriting process dilutes the song’s sincerity: “I’m a writer…but I also like to have other people in the room when I’m writing because you never know what could happen, you never know what could change in a song because one person was in there and they gave them this one idea and I think everyone deserves credit for it, obviously. … Just because there’s a million writers on a song doesn’t mean that you didn’t write the majority of it, it just means that person had their input. I think its crazy that people think that it’s mandatory to write every single word for it to be authentic.”

On whether or not she listens to her own music recreationally: “1,000% I think it’s the best thing ever. I mean that’s what you’re supposed to do because you have to make sure that you love it. It’s not weird at all, if you’re not like bumping your music, 24/7, then it’s like, what did you make it for?”

On her go-to cry song: “['Hurt' by Christina Aguilera] really gets me really emotional, since I was young too and I was like, ‘what does this mean’ ‘why am I reacting like this to the song?’”
