Mindless Behavior shows a more mature side in the video for “Used to Be,” the latest single off their album All Around the World. Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray, and Roc Royal reminisce on past relationships in the Phil the God-directed clip, which was shot on the beach and at a multi-million-dollar mansion in Beverly Hills, where Beyoncé and Jay-Z once lived.
“I think this is one of the most eclectic videos we’ve done so far,” Princeton told Rap-Up TV, while Ray Ray added, “It feels good to actually show the fans the real us, the real age, and how we’re maturing over time.”
They debuted some slick new moves on the rooftop of the multi-level crib. “The choreography is very Mindless mixed with Jodeci mixed with New Edition,” said Princeton. “You’re definitely gonna see our grown man side here.”
The R&B sensations will kick off their “All Around the World” tour on July 3. You can also catch them on the big screen in the upcoming baseball-themed movie Bad Behavior co-starring Mike Epps.
Mindless Behavior is growing up before our eyes. Rap-Up TV was on set as the teen sensations shot the mature video for “Used to Be,” the latest single off their sophomore album All Around the World. Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray, and Roc Royal took over a multi-million-dollar mansion in Beverly Hills earlier this month with director Phil the God at the helm.
Despite a rigorous rehearsal schedule and 3 a.m. call time, the fellas didn’t miss a beat while showcasing some new moves on the rooftop of the lavish pad. “The choreography is very Mindless mixed with Jodeci mixed with New Edition,” said Princeton. “You’re definitely gonna see our grown man side here.”
In addition to the dance studio, they hit up the gym to get in shape for their sexy scenes. “You might catch some shirts off here and there,” teased Ray Ray.
When it comes to their style, they took inspiration from New Edition, rocking white dress shirts, bow ties, and Chuck Taylors. “I think this is one of the most eclectic videos we’ve done so far,” said Princeton, while Ray Ray added, “It feels good to actually show the fans the real us, the real age, and how we’re maturing over time.”
Call off your plans and get ready to party with Mindless Behavior. Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray, and Princeton invite you to crash at their crib on “House Party,” a bonus track off the Target deluxe edition of the group’s sophomore album All Around the World.
“Originally the album was gonna be called House Party because we wanted the album to be cool, a lot of songs for when you’re at a house party,” said Princeton, who selected the song for his version of the album. “The song kinda describes me. I’m very fun and free, and when you listen to it, it’s very cool.”
The party anthem, along with three other bonus tracks “Lookin for Ya,” “Bang Bang Bang,” and “Your Favorite Song,” will be available exclusively at Target and Target.com starting March 12.
As part of the “Your Lyrics, Their Voices” contest, Mindless Behavior will record the winning fan’s lyrics and the fan song will be available for free download via an access code with purchase of the Target deluxe album.
Rap-Up.com has your first listen to a 90-second snippet of “House Party.”
Mindless Behavior may not be old enough for strip clubs and dollar bills, but the teen sensations still had some fun with Rihanna’s hit single “Pour It Up.”
During a visit to the Converse flagship store in Santa Monica, Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray, and Princeton broke into an impromptu performance of RiRi’s club anthem, with Prodigy changing the lyrics “strip clubs and dollar bills” to the more age-appropriate “snapbacks and dollar bills.”
Ray Ray used to have a crush on Nicki Minaj, but he’s moved on to the Barbados beauty. “She’s gorgeous,” he gushed, while Princeton marveled at her plethora of No. 1 records.
“You know what Rihanna has, she has hits,” he added. “She’s super talented.”
Mindless Behavior’s sophomore album All Around the World is due March 12 followed by their documentary Mindless Behavior: All Around the World on March 15.
March is a big month for Mindless Behavior. In addition to releasing their sophomore album All Around the World on March 12, the teen sensations’ documentary, Mindless Behavior: All Around the World, will open exclusively at AMC Theatres on March 15.
Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray, and Princeton cause another frenzy with the females in the video for “All Around the World.” But don’t expect to see them jetting across the globe. Instead, the fellas work up a sweat, in suits no less, as they dance in a mansion in the Colin Tilley-directed clip.
Mindless Behavior gets ready to embark on the next chapter of their young careers with their sophomore album All Around the World. The teen sensations—Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray, and Princeton—call on Soulja Boy (“I Lean”) and Lil Twist (“Pretty Girl”) for the 11 tracks, which include the Sean Garrett-produced first single “Keep Her On the Low.” The deluxe edition adds four songs and will be available exclusively at Target.
“We’re taking it to a new level for 2013,” Roc told Rap-Up TV of the follow-up to the group’s 2011 debut #1 Girl. “This album is about us maturing—new styles, new look, everything. We’re just getting older.”
All Around the World drops March 12 followed by their documentary, Mindless Behavior: All Around the World, which opens exclusively at AMC Theatres on March 15.
