It's Wednesday. Summer is fading out, if not already fully faded out for most school-aged peeps, and Hump Days can suck. However, we're going to help you get over the hump and make your Wednesday MUCH better by premiering Izzy Malik's video for "Just Another Boy" from her self-titled EP, out now.
Izzy Malik, 18, is a female pop artist with a twist of country when it comes to her style. In March, she performed her first gig in Merced with IM5 and False Puppet, a charity concert for the benefit of cancer patients. She is a teen activist for women's rights, as shown in her first single and music video, "Malala," which is a tribute to Malala Yousufzai, the young woman who was shot by the Taliban for wanting an education and survived.
Education and women's rights are issues that Izzy is passionate about and it shows in her music. As a young child, Izzy herself moved from Pakistan to America and she has the made the most of her opportunity to get an education, simultaneously attending college while furthering her music career.
Wow, we love a girl with goals. Izzy Malik is SUCH an inspiration.
So what about "Just Another Boy?"
"This song is based on a dream I had about one of my biggest musical inspirations, Mr. Harry Styles," Malik said. Any ARTISTdirectioner or Directioner worth their salt knows that Harry Styles is Harry from One Direction. We love him as much as Izzy Malik does.
Malik continued, "We shot this video all around L.A. and had a blast location scouting since there are so many rad places in the area! I absolutely loved shooting the paddle-boating scenes. I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as we enjoyed creating it!"
Directioners will also squeal over the fact that Izzy Malik shares her last name with 1D'er Zayn Malik! Huzzah!
In other Izzy news, she will appear on the High School Nation Tour alongside Drake Bell, Jacob Latimore, Dakota Bradley, Noelle Bean and Nikos. The tour launches September 17.
