Jessie Malakouti from Jessie and The Toy Boys has a feature on a new DJ Felli Fel and Lil Jon track and the video just premiered. The song is called ‘It’s Your Birthday Bitch’, and mix of Pop and Urban.
Jessie and The Toy Boys are back with a brand new video for their DJ Skeet Skeet produced track, ‘Runaway’. The video was inspired by the recent overturning of Proposition 8 in California, which is an extension of the song’s theme of pressure in society to be something that we’re not.
Jessie Malakouti, who tackles the issue of gay marriage from an inside perspective in the video, says, “The song is ultimately about breaking free and following your heart. I wanted to make a music video that told a similar story in relation to gay marriage. I was honored to have the beautiful and brave Mollie Thomas star in my video, and I hope that together we are able to bring about more awareness to an issue that is near and dear to both of our hearts and spread a message of equality.”
Jessie and the Toy Boys will be releasing their debut album ‘This Is How Rumors Start’ later this year. For now, download the track ‘Runaway’ for free here.

“I wrote ‘Let’s Get Naughty’ over a year ago and just kind of forgot about it for a while…. Then I was going through all my material to decide what songs I was going to play for The Femme Fatale Tour, and I came across it in my demos folder on my computer,” Jessie said, referring to her participation as an opening act on Britney Spears’ U.S. tour. “I played it for my choreographer Bobby Newberry, and he and the dancers freaked out! It was instantly their favorite song of mine because the beat is so hard and the lyrics are so swag.”
