Jessie & The Toys Boys is on a roll. After making her TV debut last week on Conan O'Brien's late show and prepping for her opening slot on Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour, Jessie Malakouti released her debut EP "Show Me Your Tanlines" on iTunes this week.
The rising success of the singer has been long in the making and sure didn't happen overnight. After some failed label deals and a songwriting stint with Xenomania in London, the Los Angeles artist is now finally in reach of true mainstream success that she has been working so hard on to achieve.
Famed producers Jimmy Harry (Kylie Minogue, Pink, Britney Spears) and Tony Kanal (No Doubt) worked on Jessie's lead single "Push It" and the punchy electro pop vibe of "Valentine" that invokes memories of a young Gwen Stefani. The sassy "Summer Boy" is fit for bathing suit season and was the inspiration for the EP's title as Jessie cheers, "You could be my summer boy, You could be my summer joy. My little toy. I wanna see your tanline. Show me yours, I'll show you mine."
It's promising material of a massively talented singer and performer who may very well be one of the biggest break out pop talents of the year. (Download "Show Me Your Tanlines" on iTunes.)
