Heart breaking news for loyal Mindless Behavior fans everywhere. Kontrol Magazine has been exclusively told that group member Prodigy is no longer with the group. Yes. You read it right. Lead singer Prodigy has left the building.
The group (who have been together since 2008) have enjoyed huge successes with hit singles such as(“My Girl” and “Mrs. Right). They have been a little quiet of late, but I certainly didn’t see this one coming.
Now we cannot give too much away, but the streets also tells us that “Like Em All” crooner Jacob Latimore will be Prodigy’s replacement. Latimore did go on tour with Mindless Behavior and Diggy Simmons for the 2011 Scream Tour “The Next Generation”, so could this shift have been a long time in the works? Hmmm… They seem to have made alternative arrangements pretty swiftly. Perhaps Prodigy as the lead singer feels that it’s time to go solo? Wouldn’t be the first time would it? (Word to Justin Timberlake).
Alas, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to say R.I.P to an original boy band line up. This seems to be a common theme amongst our young, successful and talented boy bands. Remember B2K? What about IMX/Immature? It seems that we just cannot seem to keep our young stars together. We have got to do better people! Can we have at least one boy band who’ll see it all through until the end? I live in hope.
That’s all we can say on this subject for now. As soon as we are at liberty to disclose more info, Kontrol will surely be hitting the keys the second we get the ‘go ahead’.
So, do we think Jacob Latimore will be an adequate replacement for the charismatic Prodigy?
