The New Boyz have gone their separate ways.
Â Remember the 2009 hit âYouâre a Jerkâ from the California duo New Boyz? Well it appears that Earl "Ben J" Benjamin and Dominic "Legacy" Thomas have officially called it quits.
After much speculation recently that the two have gone their separate ways, Ben J decided to clear the air and release an official statement about their break up, and what fans can expect from their futures. In the statement, Ben J stated:
âWe've shared our talents with the world as a duo and had a very successful career in doing so, our songs stayed on the charts and our videos alwaysÂ receivedÂ millions and millions ofÂ organicÂ views onÂ YouTubeÂ and Vevo. But after selling out shows and touring all over the world, we've decided that we'd like to share our talents with our fans individually. Together or apart; we've made our mark in American music history and our imprint will never be forgotten. I wish my brother(Legacy) the best in all the he does, and canât wait till we're both at the Grammy's getting nominated for Â our solo efforts; and soÂ beginsÂ a New chapter, in a New book; with this New Boyâ -Ben JÂ
In case you forgot, New Boyz also brought us the hits "I Don't Care" featuring Big Sean and "Better With The Lights Off" featuring Chris Brown. And in more current news, Ben J just released a new project a few weeks ago titled Turn Down 4 What?, whichÂ you can downloadÂ here.
