Day26’s story is already well-known to their fans, millions of whom tuned in watch it unfold on MTV’s Making the Band 4 (Which became the highest rated show in MTV history). When Sean “Diddy” Combs put out the call for vocalists in January of 2007, he was looking for talented newcomers with super- star potential and a tireless work ethic. What he got when Robert, Will, Brian, Mike and Qwanell (who later resigned from the group in December of 2009), was more than he or the fans could have ever anticipated.
On August 26, 2007, the lives of ve young men were changed forever. On that day, they became DAY26. DAY26’s self-titled debut album enter the record books as the biggest-selling de- but album from a male R&B group in the 17-year history of SoundScan. The album – which included the hit singles, “Got Me Going” and “Since You Been Gone” – exploded into the #1 spot on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 in its rst week of release, while also topping Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Al- bums” chart.
As the guys struggled with realizing their dreams amidst breakups, hookups and ghts that shook the home they shared with MTB’s Danity Kane and Donnie, their fans have
gained unprecedented access to the highs and lows of fame. “It’s de nitely a blessing and a curse at the same time,” laughs Brian. “The fans actually get to see who Day26 is as individuals and how we mesh together.” It’s a process that has only strengthened them as a group, and helped evolve the sound on “Forever In A Day”
“Forever In A Day”, the group’s sophomore album gave the guys the opportunity to show the world how they’d grown personally and artistically. “Forever In A Day”, included the hit single, “Imma Put It On Her (Feat. Yung Joc & Diddy)” – and soared into Billboard’s “Top R&B/ Hip-Hop Albums” chart at #1, while also landing at #2 on the comprehensive Billboard 200 with First week sales in excess of 113,000. Shortly after the touring and promot- ing of the “Forever In A Day” album, Day26 decided to took a group hectic and embark on solo endeavors.
