About Jessi Malay
A year later, Jessi signed with Reprise/Warner Bros. Records and began work on her first album as a solo artist. While at Warner Bros., Jessi worked with some of the hottest producers in the business including: JR Rotem (Destiny’s Child, Rick Ross (Ricky Rozay), Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj), Andy Goldmark and Bruce Roberts (Cher, Whitney Houston, ‘N Sync, Donna Summer, Barbara Streisand, Elton John), Oak (Chris Brown, Rihanna, JLo) and Stargate (Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Wiz Khalifa). Jessi’s first solo release was her single “Gimme”, featuring Lil Scrappy in 2006. In 2007, she released “Booty Bangs”, featuring Yung Joc, which garnered a huge following among industry choreographers and dancers alike. After tearing her ACL and taking time off to recover from knee surgery, Jessi decided to return to UCLA to finish her studies. Upon graduating in 2012, Jessi got back in the studio to record her debut album and co-founded her own production company and label, The Coalition Group.
In early 2013, Jessi released her latest single, “Bougie,” a track inspired by her first visit to New York Fashion Week and passion for fashion. She also started her own fashion blog, mywhiteT.com, which has garnered much attention from top designers and fellow bloggers alike. “Bougie” quickly gained traction in clubs and has been played on many radio stations including Sirius XM’s ‘20 on 20’ and New York’s Z100. This past summer she released the music video for “Bougie,”featuring avant garde fashion trends, sexy choreography and a live panther, produced and co-directed by The Coalition Group. Jessi is currently touring the club circuit across the country and finalizing her upcoming album with producers/writers Mika Lett (The Writer’s Camp, Macy Gray), Deep Watters (Adidas, Too Short, Mac Dre), and Whitey (Christina Milian, JoJo).
