History[edit]

After signing with Universal Republic Records, Shop Boyz began to record their first album, Rockstar Mentality, which featured rock-influenced hip-hop.[2] The album's lead single, "Party Like a Rockstar," was released in May 2007 and achieved commercial success, reaching number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 and becoming the highest-selling ringtone of 2007.[3] Rockstar Mentality was released on June 19, 2007, debuting at #11 on the US Billboard 200 which sold almost 200,000 copies to date.[4][5] The follow-up single, "They Like Me", performed at #98. The group was eventually released from Universal and moved to another label.

In August 2008, Shop Boyz released "Up Thru There" as the lead single from their second studio album and is currently working with Wash House Entertainment with their next upcoming project.
