In just the past few years, teen-pop/R&B quartet Mindless Behavior have opened up sold-out shows for the likes of Justin Bieber and Janet Jackson, taken the stage at two White House events, and backed up their hit-packed debut album with a national tour that’s soon to be the subject of their own feature-length documentary and concert movie. In the midst of all that action, Mindless Behavior’s Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray, and Princeton have dedicated untold hours to meeting up and interacting with their international fanbase, a rapidly multiplying network that includes more than 500,000 mobile fan-list subscribers, millions following their social media profiles, and the thousands of fans who turn up at each of the group’s famously frenzied in-store appearances. So when it came time to create their follow-up to #1 Girl (a top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart), Mindless Behavior ditched the standard approach to album-making and started recording songs while still out on the road. Deftly capturing the frenetic energy of its recording locales—including Miami, Atlanta, and Los Angeles—All Around The World (Streamline/Conjunction/Interscope Records) finds Mindless Behavior pushing deeper into the high-powered, hook-laden pop/R&B/hip-hop hybrid that made their debut so instantly irresistible and won the group so many intensely devoted fans throughout the globe.
Oh Em Gee! Who brought the fun back to music? The OMG GIRLZ, of course! The only thing you’ll be thinking when you hear the OMG GIRLZ sing or see them painting your city pink, purple and blue is “could these girlz be the next big thing?” Destined for stardom, the new teenage girl group, made up of the talented, totally gorgeous, and dedicated high-school students, “Miss STAR” (Zonnique Pullins – 16 years old), “Miss BEAUTY” (Bahja Rodriguez – 15 years old) and “Miss BABY DOLL” (Breaunna Womack – 17 years old) are proving they have one-of-a-kind sass, swag, intelligence, showmanship and talent. Spreading their message of female empowerment everywhere they go, even their name
– Officially Miss Guided – is a play on words just as fun as each girl’s colorful hairstyle. “Officially” speaking, OMG stands for young ladies AKA “Miss” that are “Guided” in positive ways, hence “Officially Miss Guided.” Their mission – to let girlz everywhere know they can stand together as friends in positivity, true sisterhood and solidarity.
It would be hard to find another teen with the poise, chops, and confident charm of Coco Jones. The 15-year-old singer admits she never lets hurdles impede her drive to success – and at 5’ 9”, she’d just jump over them anyway. With her debut Hollywood Records EP, “Made Of,” she shows the world what her growing fan base already knows: Coco Jones is a spectacular talent of limitless potential.
Sound like hype? Consider: At age 9, Coco rocked the National Anthem before 40,000 Rams fans at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. A video of that performance went viral, caught the eye of Disney scouts, and in 2010, Coco emerged as a finalist on the Disney Channel’s “Next Big Thing.” Last year, she starred in the film, “Let It Shine,” which became the Disney Channel’s #1 original film of the year, racking up more than 5.7 million viewers. Her fresh talent attracted bookers for Essence Music Festival’s “New & Next” concert where she would then perform alongside Diggy Simmons in 2012.
