Career[edit]

Justine got her start at a professional singing career when she performed songs to go with the book “Rules To Rock By”. She is known for having made a cover about "Headlines" by Drake which received 2 million views on YouTube. Her debut EP, Everyday Living, helped her land a deal with Atlantic Records in 2013. She released the album Emotionally Unavailable in 2015. During that time she made a song "Collide" featuring the rapper Tyga. In October 2015, she performed at TIDAL10X20, an event created by Jay Z and at a Tommy Hilfiger show in Brazil. She has also made television appearances including an appearance on the final episode of House of DVF.

In 2016 she left Atlantic and signed to Roc Nation[5] and Republic Records. In December 2016, she released her EP 8 Ounces, which featured artists such as Wale.

In October 2017, she was the source of controversy when she kneeled during a portion of her singing of the National Anthem at Barclays Arena in Brooklyn at a Brooklyn Nets game.

On December 7, 2017, she announced her debut album on, Ultraviolet, would be released January 18. The album featured the singles "U Don't Know" (featuring Wizkid), "Back For More" (featuring Jeremih) and "Don't Think About It." A new song would be available at midnight, called "Good Love," with album pre-order. The music video for "Don't Think About It," was released on the same day as the pre-order, December 8.
