Mindless Behavior finds a new groove on their third full-length album, #OFFICIALMBMUSIC [Conjunction Entertainment].
Returning in 2016, the swagged-up and soulful R&B trio—Princeton, E.J. & Mike River—elevate and expand their patented sound. It's a style that turned millions into fans when the group officially arrived in 2011 with their major label debut, #1 Girl. In addition to bowing at #7 on the Billboard Top 200, the record yielded hits such as "Mrs. Right" feat. Diggy Simmons" and "#1 Girl," which would collectively surpass 5.5 million ringtones and 845,000 single sales. Along the way, they garnered honors such as the "Coca Cola's Viewer's Choice Award" at the BET Awards as well as nods at The People's Choice Awards and MTV VMAs. Moreover, they shared the stage with everybody from Justin Bieber and Jason Derulo to Janet Jackson as well as performing for the First Family at The White House. 2013's All Around the World would see lightning strike twice topping Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and landing at #6 on the Top 200.
Then, the group took a break…
"We wanted to graduate high school and start college," says Princeton. "We had all grown up together. It was good to take a step back for minute." As of 2015, Mindless Behavior amicably parted ways with the original members.
Enter E.J. and Mike who add a new chemistry and flavor to the sound. "We've gone to the next level," smiles Princeton. "This is who we are now as musicians and young men."
That's why the new album is simply called #OFFICIALMBMUSIC. It's Mindless Behavior at their best and brightest yet.
