Mindless Behavior fans, the moment you've all been waiting for has finally come: Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray and Roc Royal's latest album, All Around the World, is now in stores, arriving on shelves Tuesday. For the past several weeks, the guys have been jetting from city to city, spreading the word about their latest project with fans all over the map.
Ray Ray tells ABC News Radio that delivering the follow-up to the group's 2011 debut, #1 Girl, marks a major milestone for Mindless Behavior. "Us being an African-American group, we got doubted a lot. Like...'You won't even make it past the first album.' So for us to even have a second album, you know, proved a lot of people wrong, and we're here to fight for our position," he says.
Mindless Behavior's swift rise from aspiring stars to teen heartthrobs is detailed in a new documentary and concert movie, also titled All Around the World, which premieres in theaters Friday. Fans will "love" the film, Prodigy says, "because, you know, they get to see how we, how we became Mindless Behavior. And they get to see us as human beings, like way beyond Mindless Behavior. They get to see who we actually are as people."
Cameras followed the fellas behind the scenes, capturing their ups and downs and everything in between. "Every time you see an artist, it's usually award shows or TV," Ray Ray says. "We wanted to show them the blood, sweat and tears of Mindless Behavior. You're gonna see us cry. Like you're going to see the Mindless Behavior, the real us. Which is really cool."
Promoting the album and the film at the same time has kept the Mindless Behavior guys very busy. "It's been a whirlwind," Princeton says, adding that he "can't wait" for fans to hear the group's new music.
