Another collaboration track, Nothing with The Immature Kids and Umid, has gained over 140,000 plays on Spotify.
Skye continues to work on her own solo material. She released the single Gaslight in October 2017, and she followed it up with Double Play in August 2018. She is currently working on a new EP to be released in 2020.
