Princeton Perez’s 1st solo single, ‘Perfect World,’ is shaping up to be music perfection. The former Mindless Behavior member proved that he’s back (and better than ever) with the new smash.
You may know Princeton Perez, 23, from his time in boy band Mindless Behavior, but the singer is back as a solo artist and it’s like he never left. The multitalented singer, songwriter, actor and dancer dropped a brand new single, “Perfect World,” and it’s a super smooth R&B bop that will instantly capture your heart. Take a listen to the brand new track below, and hear all about the song from the singer himself!
“Perfect World” arrived after a 3-year hiatus, and the singer is thrilled to back in the hit-making game. For those who can’t get enough of the new track don’t fret — he has a full EP on the way as well! Princeton teamed up with Ketrina Askew at Artclub Intl, and Timeless Music Group to record his first ever solo EP. While “Perfect World” is the lead single off the mini album, fans can expect plenty more classic R&B tracks throughout the project, although “Perfect World” just might be a standout. The singer was sure to dish on the inspiration behind the track in an EXCLUSIVE chat with HL. “My inspiration was putting a record out that was real and relatable to everyone. Everyone wants their own perfect world, and truth is we all can be selfish sometimes,” he revealed.
It’s no surprise that Princeton came right out the gate with a strong solo debut after his time in Mindless Behavior, still considered one of the most successful touring urban boy bands. Before disbanding in 2017, they toured with the likes of Janet Jackson, Backstreet Boys, Justin Bieber Jason Derulo, and more! The group was nominated for an MTV VMA in 2012 and won the BET People’s Choice Award the same year. They were also invited to the White House to perform for President Obama and his family on multiple occasions! The singer admits that striking out as a solo artist is a while different ball game. “It’s much more work, but I was prepared for it,” he tells HollywoodLife.” Being solo is completely different from being in MB because now I have to be in the studio for hours and hours, with the guys I did my part and then was able to chill lol! The approach is different because now I’m focused on subjects I want to talk about and get experiment with my sound.”
Don’t miss the chance to listen to Princeton Perez’s first song in more than three years, above! As he embarks on his solo career, Princeton has made one hell of a promising start. “People can expect some feel good classic R&B music! The kind you can listen to at your family cookout & with ur friends in the whip heading to the club. I just wanna make people feel something when they hear my music,” he said, looking ahead to his new EP. Oh, and in time where collaborations reign king, Princeton was sure to dish on his list of dream artists to work with. “I would love to do a song with Drake, Chris Brown, Usher or Missy Elliott,” he told HollywoodLife.
