Justine Skye is making an effort to reflect on her relationship woes in music rather than social media. The singer has returned with “What a Lie,” her first single release of the year. Over a relaxed production, Skye calls out an ex-lover who she discovered was unfaithful in their relationship. “User, what a user / A blessing, learning lessons / I see then for entertaining leechers / My poison was your peaches / Could’ve save my time, should’ve taken my space,” she sings in the first verse. “What a Lie” comes months after Skye went on Instagram Live to tell a recent story about how she caught her ex-boyfriend cheating on her. At the time, she was known to have been in a relationship with fellow R&B singer Givēon, which led many fans to speculate that she was talking about him. Though some fans were excited about the details surrounding their breakup, others felt that Skye should have vented about the situation through a song. She obviously took their advice. “Ya’ll keep telling me to put it in the music,” Skye tweeted on April 13, as she announced the release date for “What a Lie.” In December, Skye put the “Heartbreak Anniversary” singer on blast over claims of infidelity. Justine revealed that she found out he was creeping behind her back after she got access to his phone and saw that he was texting other women. Giveon is releasing his new single “Lie Again” a week later, on April 29. In response to a tweet comparing the two singles, Justine shaded her ex while seemingly denying that his song was about her. “I already know what this weak-ass song sounds like anyway,” she tweeted. “It’s not what y’all think it’ll be.”
