NEW BOYZ TO JOIN CHRIS BROWN ON NORTH AMERICAN FAN APPRECIATION TOUR

NEW BOYZ TO JOIN CHRIS BROWN ON NORTH AMERICAN FAN APPRECIATION TOUR

Burbank, CA – Ben J and Legacy of The New Boyz will join multi-platinum recording artist Chris Brown on an 18-city North American Tour.

When “You’re A Jerk” hit the internet earlier this summer, the group had no idea how fast the song would pick up. Within days of uploading, youth across the country were recording hundreds of videos imitating the fancy footwork prompting other viewers to virally one-up their cyber counterparts with their own videos.

The song eventually made its way into the Top 5 on the Billboard music charts and garnered over a million views for the video’s Music Choice debut in its first week (the 2nd highest in the VOD network’s history)—not bad for two teens who initially recorded the song in their closet. Tour-mate Chris Brown even got in on the action uploading acrobatic videos with jerk dancing associates Scooter “Lil Scoot” Smiff and Mijo.

Their current single “Tie Me Down” featuring Ray J just landed the #2 debut at radio and is currently #1 at Music Choice with over 1.6 million orders to date.

The recent graduates have become the ambassadors of this counter-culture marked by loud colors and form-fitting garb, most notably their notorious skinny jeans. “This is us. We’re showing a different side of hip-hop and a different style from the West Coast. We’ve never been worried about the haters or critics,” says Ben J.

Their debut album Skinny Jeanz & A Mic was released September 15th on Asylum/Warner Bros. Records and chronicles the life and experiences of normal, carefree teenagers. “People think we only do jerk music, but we do a whole lot of everything,” says Legacy. “The album is about having fun and the typical teenage life. The show will capture this.”
