Mindless Behavior Talks 'All Around The World' Album & Documentary: Video
Watch the best-selling vocal group discuss their sophomore album and upcoming tour.
Mindless Behavior, the teen R&B/pop collective composed of Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray and Roc Royal, just scored their biggest sales week ever when their second studio album, "All Around The World," debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart with 37,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As the new album demonstrates, Mindless Behavior may be a boy band, but they're no longer kids -- and the more mature full-length is only the beginning to the group's whirlwind 2013.
"The concept of the album was our real-life experiences -- that's how we came up with the records," Ray Ray told Billboard when he, Prodigy and Roc Royal stopped by the Billboard studio in New York last week (Princeton was absent but sent his regards). After the group scored hits like "My Girl" and "Mrs. Right" on their 2011 debut "#1 Girl," Mindless Behavior -- whose members are now 15 and 16 years old -- returned with an album that featured sly singles like "Keep Her On The Low" and guest appearances by Soulja Boy, Jacob Latimore and Lil Twist.
"All Around The World" is also the title of Mindless Behavior's documentary, which was released last Friday and chronicles the group's quick rise to fame over the course of its "#1 Girl" tour. For the group, their silver screen debut was another chance to super-serve their supporters.
"We actually put some fans in the movie," explained Roc Royal. "From then to now, our fan base has expanded so much, and we really appreciate our fans. We basically cater to them, and we basically treat our fans like they're friends."
Mindless Behavior has spent the past week promoting both the new album and the documentary, and coming up is another extensive world tour that will likely kick off this summer. The group is also finishing up a movie with Mike Epps titled "Bad Behavior," which has yet to receive a release date.
