(PW) Weeds star Meital Dohan is launching her music career with the release of her debut single "Yummy Boyz" off her upcoming debut album "I'm in Hate With Love".
On the new album, Meital teams up with producer Che Pope who's best known for his work with Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Lauryn Hill. Her first single "Yummy Boyz" is available today on iTunes and is a great introduction to Meital's pop, dance sound.
Her music and lyrics are catchy, upbeat and exude the same sexiness and playfulness that this actress turned singer represents.
The official "Yummy Boyz" music video can be seen on Meital's official YouTube Channel and it's just as colorful and creative as the track, with great production and even features an appearance by the Obama look-alike Reggie Brown.
"I've always been very passionate about music, but spent the majority of my career focusing on acting," says Meital Dohan. "But, when I met Che Pope, I took it as a sign that it was time to start recording my first album."
Before crossing into the music industry, Meital Dohan established herself as an actress and is a two-time Israeli Oscar nominee for her performances in the films God's Sandbox and Giraffes. Most recently, Meital landed a role in the film Monogamy co-starring Chris Messina and Rashida Jones, which won the Best Narrative Feature at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. She also stars in the upcoming feature film Foreclosure alongside Michael Imperioli and Wendell Pierce.
On the small screen, Meital mesmerized her fans in Season 2 of the hit series Weeds as the sexy rabbinical scholar "Yael Hoffman" who becomes "Andy Botwin's" (played by Justin Kirk) adventurous lover. She also played the role of "Aurora" in Woke Up Dead starring Jon Heder and Wayne Knight. On stage, Meital co-starred as "Abby" with John Ventimiglia (The Sopranos) in the Off-Broadway and LA productions of Anthony Neilson's play Stitching, which is now being developed into a feature film directed by Bernard Rose. Meital also won an Israeli Tony for Most Promising New Actress for her work with the renowned Cameri Theater and was a principal star in the Israeli Emmy Award-Winning Ugliest Esti - the Israeli version of Ugly Betty.
