Jessie Malakouti updated fans on her MySpace blog, talking about what happened to the song "Trash Me".
The song received attention after Britney Spears released "If You Seek Amy", which sounded suspiciously like "Trash Me". More recently, the song was covered by Heidi Montag. "Trash Me" was written by Jessie Malakouti over two years ago, while she was still in her old band Shut Up Stella. Jessie writes:
«"Trash Me" was circulating around the industry and getting lots of buzz. So much buzz, that I was flown to Sweden to write and record with some other unmentionables for a week. A couple of okay songs came out of the trip, but I didn't have the same connection with the unmentionables that I did with Xenomania. So I signed to Xenomania and began working on my debut album.
Fast forward a few months, and a little tune called
Now Jessie is moving on and is focused on the songs she's written with Xenomania. She says: «I've always prided myself on being ahead of the sound, and really feel like the songs I am writing with Xenomania are the future of pop!».
Her first official single, "Standing Up For The Lonely", will be out soon. A 4-track album sampler/megamix is available to download on her website.
