Mindless Behavior Break Down Ode To Texting, ‘My Girl’

'We text, our parents text, the song could relate to everyone,' 13-year-old Ray Ray tells MTV News about boy band's catchy debut single.

[artist id="3746085"]Mindless Behavior[/artist] have been burning up teen girls’ iPods with their catchy debut single, “My Girl,” a track about a girl who texts her boyfriend constantly. It’s a topic the up-and-coming boy band — Ray Ray, Princeton, Prodigy and Roc Royal — told MTV News they could relate to.

“Well, ‘My Girl’ is about, we’re talking to each other, talking to our friends or whoever you hang out with, that our girls text us a lot,” Ray Ray explained. “And everyone texts. We text, our parents text, the song could relate to everyone.”

Ray Ray’s bandmate Princeton added that the song not only appealed to them lyrically, but its funky, techno/R&B beat also won them over. “First, when we heard the beat it was just catchy and then our management team made the lyrics,” he said. “So it went perfectly.”

The four 13-year-olds are also stoked about the video for “My Girl,” which serves not only as an intro to the new pop group, but also an eye-catching spectacle of smooth dance moves. “It was exciting. We were all happy. We had a lot of fun on the set,” Ray Ray said.

Princeton noted that although the daylong shoot could have been grueling, it was in fact a good time.

“It was an all-day shoot. We started at 5 o’clock in the morning and ended at 10 o’clock at night, so it was fun. We saw the different outfits and the crew was amazing too,” he recalled. “[The video] starts off with us walking out of a concert and girls are screaming. It’s basically just us at a concert performing in different outfits and different scenes.”
