Joslyn Sky, aka, JSKY, is a singer/songwriter who creates to inspire and leave the world a more beautiful place. The song is made to evoke runway-style confidence, having collaborated with OCFASHIONWEEK, Bohorockercollection, and Nikol Davis for the music video coming with the single.

The drums, synth, and textural elements make it a perfect blend for listeners seeking happy music.
JSKY is a nominee and winner for R&B Female Artist of 2016 at the Bull City Music Awards with her single “Love Myself” in Durham, NC. Her first album, ‘Madness in Lashes’ in 2019.

She has performed for over 20,000 people at the Puerto Rican Festival in Charlotte, NC, and at a Breast Cancer Awareness event in Albany, NY.
