Ying Yang Twins

Ying Yang Record with Britney Spears

Posted By on September 20, 2003

Atlanta’s Ying Yang Twins are experiencing the most success of their career, after putting in years of work down south and releasing such regional hits as “Ying Yang In This Thang” and “Whistle While You Twurk.”

After striking it big this year on Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz’ “Get Low,” as well as their own single “Naggin,” group members D-Rock and Kaine have recorded a single with Britney Spears, hoping the track will dramatically raise their rising profiles.

“It was totally out of left field,” group member Kaine told AllHipHop.com. “The Ying Yang Twins and Britney Spears, it sounds crazy, but the track we did will show everyone that the Ying Yang Twins are versatile.”

The single, “I Got That Boom Boom,” is earmarked for Spears’ latest album Get In The Zone. The group’s manager and DJ, DJ Smurf, said that Spears wanted the duo off of the strength of “Get Low.”

“The good thing is, the song they did isn’t outside of what she does or outside of what they do,” Smurf added. “She just wanted them on the cut because she wanted that hip-hop element.”

The group just came off the Dirty South Tour and will be hitting the road for the “Me And My Brother” tour, which will support their album of the same name.

“Man we don’t even have a gold or platinum album yet, but they wanted the Ying Yang,” Kaine said.

Their third album, Me And My Brother is in stores now.
