The beautiful Queens of the SFPL Fly Family, hailing from the throne of MBK Entertainment comes Justine Skye, Gabi Wilson and Elle Varner as they talk about their label’s newest Christmas album, A Classic Holiday and more.
Justine Skye aka The Purple Unicorn spoke on her creative remake of the classic 1985 holiday cut “Last Christmas”, originally performed by British Pop Duo, Wham!. The young star also talked about the recent Times Square takeover for the lyric video premiere of “I’m Yours” featuring Vic Mensa — starring a few of her closest friends like: Kylie & Kendall Jenner, Travis Scott, Hit-Boy and more.
Musician Gabi Wilson told us how she felt about covering her favorite holiday song, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”. Gabi also recently performed on the 2015 AMA’s Red Carpet Pre-Show and shared her experience of when she first heard about the news, as she was elated to be apart of music history. The singer-songwriter also mentioned an upcoming EP titled HER was in the works.
Elle Varner takes us down memory lane as she revisits the oh-so-adorned soulful tune, “This Christmas”. Only this time, the talented singer added her own twist of what she calls, “Trap Jazz”, which mixes up a special recipe bringing the classic song into the realm of music that’s trending today. Elle also gave more insight into her pursuing the acting side of things, working on films, shows, all while working on her forthcoming album.
Collectively, the ladies talked about what it felt like to be on a Christmas album with artists that they’ve looked up to growing up: Brandy Norwood, Tyrese, Alicia Keys and Coko (of SWV).
Lastly, the gang went back in time and discussed their favorite gifts that they received as a kid and so much more.
MBK is a multi-media firm helmed by esteemed producer and artist manager Jeff Robinson. When asked about his inspiration for putting the compilation together, he says:
“Holidays are about family, love and of course sharing. So it’s with great joy that I had the pleasure of pulling together my MBK Family to create this fantastic holiday album with love.”
A visionary who formerly managed Alicia Keys through her breakthrough success and beyond as well as Tyrese, Robinson and his team has worked and continues to work in various capacities with each artist on A Classic Holiday.
