Mindless Behavior, My Girl

0

There's something endearing about the way the members of rising boy band Mindless Behavior choose to celebrate their innocent romances in "My Girl." On their debut single, the group's four 13-year-olds-Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray and Princeton-convey their affections through text messaging and phone chatting, over a beat that recalls a ringtone. "You hit me with a sad face, what I do?/I hit you with a question mark, you send me back a J-slash-K, said I'm just playing with you," reads a sample lyric. The mix of spoken-word come-ons adds a hip-hop element to the pop instrumentation, and although the boys' voices are still maturing, "My Girl" proves they can tackle the high notes and maintain a smooth command of their sound. Mindless Behavior uses "My Girl" to share its experiences with young love in a playfully catchy way that preteens can relate to.
