    Just in time for Valentine's Day, our favorite pop songstress, Jessie and the Toy Boys, has released a positive, powerful new music video for "Runaway". It shows another side of the singer, illuminating her gorgeous delivery and touching songwriting chops. This girl can seriously do it all, and she's going to rightfully take over pop music very, very soon. You'll want to "Runaway" with her the second you see the video below!

    She's also provided a little message for us.

    From Jessie and The Toy Boys:

    I was overjoyed to learn that Proposition 8 was recently over turned in my home state of California. It's a step in the right direction, however for a country that teaches it's children to place their right hand over their hearts and pledge 'Liberty and justice for all' we still have a long way to go towards actually making that a reality. When I wrote 'Runaway' with DJ Skeet Skeet, we wrote it from the perspective of our 13 year old selves, who felt pressure from our parents and society to be something that we were not. 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. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone deserves love.
