Atlantic records released a statement from the r&b group DAY26 that has fans baffled. Apparently, the group, after working so hard on returning to the music scene, as decided to take a break to work on their own individual projects. To be honest, DAY26 was never in harmony from the get-go. I’m not sure if you were one to tune in to their Making the Band show on MTV, but these guys used to fight, bicker, and have all sorts of creative disagreement. I was thrilled when they decided to come back after switching labels/management. Diddy is a good businessman but when it comes to his artists I don’t think he has time for them. Anyways, check out the official statement below:
(New York NY – July 16, 2012) - “It is with great sadness and deep pain that we regret to inform you that effective immediately, Atlantic Records Platinum recording group, DAY26 have decided to take a break from the group and focus on their own individual projects. On behalf of all the members; Willie, Mike, Rob, Brian and even Que, we would like to thank all of the “fams” aka fans, dj’s across the world, promoters, radio programmers, Bad Boy Entertainment, Starstruck Management, BET, VH1 and FUSE and all DAY26supporters in general, for your unending support throughout these years.”
“We would also like to acknowledge that this journey would have not been made possible without the vision and mastermind of Sean “Diddy” Combs and of course MTV Networks for making a group of unknown men, the stars that they are today.”
“We simply thank you from the bottom of our hearts and really want you to know that the journey does not end here. We continue to wish each other the very best and continued success in all of our individual endeavors, and all we ask of you is to please give each member a chance and the opportunity to shine in whatever they do.”
…And as the saying goes, this is not a goodbye, but a simply see you later.
God bless you all,
Much Love, DAY26.
For some reason taking a break in this situation to me sounds like disbandment, especially since they mentioned Que. Well, whatever the case, I still wish them all luck and best wishes with whatever it is they do next.
