Remember the 2009 hit “You’re a Jerk” 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:

“We'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 always received millions and millions of organic views on YouTube 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 can’t wait till we're both at the Grammy's getting nominated for  our solo efforts; and so begins a New chapter, in a New book; with this New Boy” -Ben J 

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?, which you can download here.
