On her steady climb to mass recognition, she's picked up new fans and new abilities with each release. Every time she comes out with a new song, she shows off a new skill. With the hypnotic "Muse," she demonstrated that she could be a sultry, seductive singer. With the sassy "All The Way"—a track that features the acclaimed Arizona emcee Futuristic—she showed off her dexterous rapping. So What makes Justina Valentine grind so hard?Start with where she's from: Passiac County, a fast-moving, multi-ethnic area in Northern New Jersey. People from this neck of the woods learn to be resourceful, and while it might not be the biggest market in the nation, there are diamonds hidden in these Jersey streets. America has just recently woken up to the talent in the 973 area code—Fetty Wap, another resident, became a chart-topping sensation in 2014 while staying true to his home base. Fetty graces Justina's salacious "Candy Land," (a song that isn't exactly about boardgames) with his distinctive vocals. "Candy Land," "All The Way," "Muse," and eight other irresistible tracks are all on Scarlet Letter, Justina Valentine's debut album—a sizzling amalgam of hip-hop, R&B, soul, electro-pop, and east coast attitude that seems sure to make Valentine a star.And if you don't believe us, believe the people at MTV.

This spring, she supported the release of "Scarlet Letter" on the 30-city 'Hate Us Cause They Ain't Us' tour, electrifying crowds with her kinetic stage show.

For the moment, anyway; you're certain to have an opportunity to see her out on the road again soon. She's going to keep doing what she does best—grinding, challenging herself, and bringing her music to her fast-growing audience. We wouldn't expect anything less from a talented, hard-working, smart-mouthed superstar-in-the-making.
