Mindless Behavior's Tour Has Been cancelled
In a matter of months, this four-member boy group, assembled by producers Vincent Herbert (Lady Gaga) and Walter Millsap (Alicia Keys), went from opening for Janet Jackson to shutting down malls and headlining their own tour.
"My Girl," a peppy pop-R&B single released in 2011, provided the group with all the momentum it needed, and it only helped that they were filling a void with clean content targeted at tween and teen girls. Like "My Girl," much of #1 Girl involves songwriting input from Millsap, Candice Nelson (co-author of Timbaland's "The Way I Are"), and Lakeisha Gamble; those three, along with several other writers, craft an album full of age-appropriate pop-R&B that doesn?t get much more suggestive than "We 'bout to get acquainted now."
It's all decent, high gloss material that fits into mainstream R&B/rap radio playlists circa without offending parents.
