Justy (also stylized as JUSTY) is a Brooklyn-born, Staten Island-raised artist. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt indie-R&B tune, entitled, “Rinse, Repeat, Regress.”
Justy – “Rinse, Repeat, Regress” single
“Self-acceptance felt like something I had to earn and earning it was based on the merits of everyone else but myself. I figured if I’m a good student, a good kid, a good friend, then I deserve to love and accept myself. We spend a lot of our life learning how to be selfless but it’s taboo to be selfish. I think being selfish in terms of self-preservation has to be more normalized because a lot of people, especially people in my communities, are so self-sacrificing to no avail. I learned that I deserve to accept myself.” – Justy explained
‘Rinse, Repeat, Regress’ is a stream-of-consciousness admission that shares Justy’s fears and dreams. The song offers a poignant piece of advice that is extremely relevant to listeners. Also, “Rinse, Repeat, Regress” contains an inspiring, yet gloomy narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The empowering self-love single possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with indie R&B, hip-hop, and nu-jazz elements.
“When I love myself again, maybe I could love again.”
“This past summer, I had an awful breakup. Like my ex currently dating the friend, I introduced her to. I felt so defeated, unlovable, worthless, and pointless. Against my own wants, I decided to pursue therapy because I knew I wasn’t hanging on to life by much. I was existing but I wasn’t living. My therapist reminded me that people’s actions are always a reflection of themselves. I realized the same applied to my life. Everything I had done in life was rooted in me not truly loving myself. I almost lost myself for someone else but I wasn’t even willing to save myself for me. From that point on, I made a promise to fall for myself, to learn for myself, to heal myself, and to trust myself. I knew that if I could do that I could find love again because I wouldn’t be searching for a filler, I would simply be living.” – Justy explained
Justy began writing music at the age of 12. Fast-forward 10 years and she has blossomed into a unique and promising force. Her musical influences include J Dilla, Amy Winehouse, NoName, Anderson .Paak, and Lauryn Hill.
“I’ll never leave, I’m just stuck with me.”
“It was important for me to touch on this sort of love story. Because too often we are told to love everyone else and chase everyone else. But we really have to get ourselves straight before we go down that road.” – Justy stated
In 2018, Justy’s refreshing sound caught the ear of British music powerhead, Kwame Kwaten. He brought the budding artist on for a two single project where she penned the notable tracks, “Try” (2018) and “L8R” (2019). Later, she released her debut project, entitled, “Soul Food, the Precede,” which contains a portrayal of love, loss, insecurities, and ambition.

‘Rinse, Repeat, Regress’ serves as a tasty appetizer of what listeners can expect to hear on Justy’s forthcoming album, due out late in 2021. It follows mildly on the heels of her “Blues on the Crosley,” “Cool,” and “Expectations” singles. Justy’s music is an honest embrace of soul-nourishing therapy mixed with life lessons.
