If you’ve seen Justine Skye’s new video “Build,” you were likely struck by the visuals depicting women who were emotionally and physically abused by the same man. The song and music video are particularly personal to Justine who revealed that she was involved in an abusive relationship herself.

We had an intimate sit-down with the 23-year-old who detailed her experience, from ignoring red flags and making excuses for her former partner’s controlling behavior, to actually fearing for her life and having to reach out to unlikely acquaintances for help to get out of her situation.

“I didn’t want to believe what was going on,” Justine said as she explained how her ex isolated her from friends and family and criticized her past relationships.

Check out our full interview with the singer as she lays out the warning signs that were there and how she healed from her experience.
