New Boyz debuted in the summer of 2009 with their viral hit single “You’re A Jerk.” The single not only peaked in the top 30 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but also brought the then regional jerkin’ style to the national forefront, giving the duo national acclaim. This lead into the release of their debut studio album Skinny Jeanz & A Mic, “one of the year’s most charming rap debuts, and certainly the least expected” (New York Times).
Considered by many to be a new generation of one-hit wonders, the group would go on to prove the opposition wrong with the release of their multi-platinum selling 2nd single, “Tie Me Down” featuring Ray J. The group may have initially been known as jerks, but the release of their pop-leaning 2nd single earned the duo their second Top 5 Rhythmic radio smash and would catapult the boys into a position of being a force to reckon with.
Since then they have toured alongside Chris Brown and Sean Kingston, caused nothing short of pandemonium in venues and malls across the nation, landed a role in Mario Van Peebles’ 2011 film “We The Party,” and have received BET Hip-Hop and Teen Choice Awards nominations for their respective “Best Group” categories.
The duo’s new album “Too Cool Too Care” will be in stores May 17th! Check out the new single below featuring Chris Brown, “Better With The Lights Off.”
