Stellina is thrilled to release her debut single “EXTRA SUNNY” today! The ethereal track features Stellina’s wispy soprano vocals and production and verse from Toronto artist L-SPEX. Perfectly ambiguous, “EXTRA SUNNY” slides between experimental pop and R&B, making it for fans of FKA Twigs and Kilo Kish. Championing female sexuality, Stellina writes, “The song is about fuck buddies but contrary to what most people think, girls don’t always gotta catch feelings. It plays with stereotypes about casual sex.” Stellina has a smile across her face as her boy makes her eggs extra runny the next morning. LISTEN HERE
“EXTRA SUNNY” was premiered October 5th with support from MILK, who wrote, “if the EP is anything like ‘EXTRA SUNNY,’ we’re in for a hazy, haunting, electro-pop-infused treat. Lucky us.”
Stellina, named Justine Iaboni, is an established Canadian lifestyle blogger known as Jetset Justine. She grew up as a classically trained pianist and vocalist, but gave up music due to emotional abuse and discrimination when she was only 12 years old. She shied away from all things music because she didn’t want to face the pain from her past, so instead she channeled her creative energy into fashion and writing with her site jetsetjustine.com. In 2017, Justine connected with Gabby Bernstein’s teachings and found within her spiritual journey the empty space in her soul that could only be filled by music. With the encouragement from L-SPEX, Justine was able to create in an open environment that helped her release those anxieties. Through her blog, Justine has shared her story with followers and continues to keep them engaged as she transitions from top Canadian influencer to full-time musician, Stellina.
“EXTRA SUNNY” is the first single off her upcoming debut EP Star Seventeen. All filled with hazy, experimental tunes, it’s clear that Stellina was meant to rise from the ashes.
