Who Am I ?


Fall 2013

1. Who am I?

I am Just Ivy, a singer.

2. What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am a Pop/R&B artist and currently hard at work on my debut album. My first single, “Paradise,” which features the extremely talented hit-maker Akon is currently out now. My second single “Bad Girl Take Over” featuring DJ Khaled and Meek Mill is coming soon, and I”m very excited about everyone hearing it. It is something totally different than “Paradise”…so you will see a different side of me.

3. Where are you from and where are you going?

Right now I can say that I”m from NY (LOL) because I spend most of my time here doing music and this city absorbs you to the point that you become a part of it.

As far as where I’m going, I will leave that up to my heart and most importantly my music.

4. Who is your biggest hero?

Anyone who dedicates themselves to help humanity. Anyone who is trying to make our world a better place. It doesn”t matter if you help one person or hundreds, as long as you do it sincerely and don”t expect anything in return.

5. What book is your bible?

I can”t say that I live by a book, because life is unpredictable, there are so many situations you have to go through which none of the books will teach you, you have to become your own person through good and bad and make your own choices and listen to your heart…

But going back to your question, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is a book that I can read 100 times and each time I find new wisdom there.

6. What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

I really don”t hate anything–its a destructive emotion and I like to stay positive. I love spending time with my family and friends; I love music, fashion, traveling, discovering new places, movies…and more.

7. What is your raison dӐtre?

Personal raison d”être as a human being, I could talk about it for hours, I still have a lot to learn, go through and overcome. But when it comes to music, I would like my music to give people positive emotions, and if my song puts a smile on someone”s face, or helps to get through a tough day that is the biggest reward to me.

8. What is your favorite color?

Black, white, red…electric blue, green, yellow…

9. Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

I was never really into comic books, but if I had to pick I would say Batman.

10. What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

I don”t really have the time to go out, because after a full day in the studio or at rehearsals I just want to find a quite place where I can sit and enjoy my friends…or I sleeeeep.

However, back when I could sometimes enjoy NY at night time, I liked Catch for diner and One Oak for after.

11. What turns you on?

Positive people and good music.

12. What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

It feels weird to ask yourself a question and then answer it, so I”d rather leave that to you.
