Join us as HipHopFirstClass catches up with Meital on a one on one interview. We even came across a very interesting fact about Charlie and what special place he holds in Metial’s life.

HipHopFirstClass: How was it working with hip hop star Sean Kingston for your second single, “On yea”?

Meital: It was wonderful working with him. He’s a great artist and he has potential in his music and in his personality. Cudda Love introduced me to Sean Kingston and that’s when we came into the conclusion of making a hit single together.

HipHopFirstClass: If you could pick one lucky fan to spend a day with you, where would you take them first?

Meital: If I could pick one lucky fan…I’d take them everywhere I’d go so they can see how I live my life. I’m just like any other person here in the world and I would love to share with them how I live. If they’re also brave enough I could introduce them to Charlie.

Who’s Charlie, if you don’t mind me asking?
Meital: Charlie is my pet tiger. He appears in the cover of my new single “On Yea,” and I’ve had him for a year and six months. If anyone is brave enough to meet him I’d be glad to show them Charlie. He’s a nice pet and he’s wonderful.

HipHopFirstClass: What inspired you to become a musician here in the states?

Meital: When I was in Israel, I’d perform on “Dancing with the Stars.” That’s when my journey was set and changed my life. I went to visit a monk two years ago, and he told me that there’s something in my life that I have to search for. Acting wasn’t just my life, but soon later singing became a huge part in my life and that’s when my career started.

HipHopFirstClass: When you have your first concert, who would you choose to be the opening act?

Meital: I would love Eminem to open up my concert, since I’m a huge fan. I’d also choose Kanye West or Jay-Z. Hip hop is a big thing in my life and I love the way they rap.

HipHopFirstClass: If we’re not mistaken you’re also an actress on the hit television series, Weeds? How did you like working with your co-hosts?

Meital: Yes, I was on the television series Weeds for Season 2 and for the 100th episode. It was great working with them they supported my music and they’d always give me great advice. They’re like my second family that I can trust on.

HipHopFirstClass: If you could work on an opening theme song for any television series, which series would you choose and why?

Meital: I would say Weeds, but the show is already over. I would love to do an opening theme song for Mad Men or Breaking Bad. I’m a huge fan of these shows and especially anything that will keep the viewer in suspense and keep them guessing on what’s going to happen next.

October 5 marked the premiere of Meital’s “On Ya” music video debut on MTV. And now we bring it straight to you for your viewing pleasure! Trust me you are not going to want to blink on this one!
