Too Cool to Care (Standard Version) by New Boyz on Apple Music

10 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Best known for their breakout hit "You're a Jerk," which arguably launched the short-lived "jerk music" fad a few years back, the New Boyz return with their second full-length, expanding their sound to include more than just the minimal 808-centric beats that blew them up in the first place. In terms of lyrics, they find beauty in repetition, with loads of catchy hooks and chanted choruses that are sure to stay stuck in your head, focusing mostly on girls and on themselves, while the production is straight over-the-top 2011 pop, with plenty of AutoTune and walls of synths. Check out the Chris Brown collabo "Better With the Lights Off," the ‘80s-influenced "Magazine Girl," and aggressively upbeat "Meet My Mom."

About New Boyz

No mere glossy gimmick, despite their youthfulness and their novelty hit, the New Boyz were labeled "the Young Teens of Hip-Hop" by the New York Times before they even had an official single out. Earl "Ben J" Benjamin and Dominic "Legacy" Thomas met in the L.A. suburb of Victorville during their freshman year of high school. While initially nemeses, the pair built a friendship over a shared love of rhyme, and constructed a MySpace site to promote their first single, "Colorz." The duo's big break came in the summer of 2009, when "You're a Jerk," a tough but slightly goofy crunk jam built upon a popular local dance called "jerkin'," became a crossover pop hit. The duo followed up quickly in September with their debut album Skinny Jeanz & a Mic. Their sophomore release, 2011’s Too Cool to Care, was a more polished affair, influenced by the likes of Flo Rida and Far East Movement. ~ Jason Thurston
