In front of various music executives, she performed a cover of Sam Sparro's "Black and Gold." The Brooklyn native subsequently took singing lessons and honed her songwriting, then worked with August Rigo and Eric Hudson. Their sessions led to Everyday Living, a confident contemporary R&B EP released on Atlantic in August 2013.
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.
