Title: Day 26
Artist: Day26
Release Date: 3.25.08

Sean "Diddy" Combs, known for giving many artists their break into the industry has done it again. We've seen the rise and fall of many groups stemming from his series of Making the Band, this cycle will be the true test of his "magic".

Mike, Que, Willie, Robert & Brian A. were the last men standing of thousands wanting to make their lifelong dream come true. Throughout their journey they've fought, cried and dealt with tremendous pressure to make a compilation of hits that would stand the test of time. Working with a string of talented producers & song writers including Brian Michael Cox and Mario Winans, just to name a few, these young cats have all the factors to an equation made for nothing but success.

Introducing Day 26, a name which seems odd to a newcomer. However, those who have been tracking their journey will realize it marks the day their lives changed for the better: 8/26/07; the day they were no longer in competition with one another. This is the day these 5 guys were born again - as Bad Boys. The beginning of what I'd like to think of as the new era of Bad Boy Entertainment.

Their self titled debut album: Day 26, is full of hits. Strummed with melodic beats, vivid lyrical content & five voices meant to touch your soul, this album will have you wanting to dance, cry, and profess your love for that special someone. As you take a further look and listen, their vibe and sound is very reminiscent of groups such as Jodeci, Boyz II Men & more impressively New Edition even with bad boy himself, Bobby Brown.

With tracks such as "Got Me Going", their current single and a bonafide club hit, speaks of a woman whom has them in a whirlwhind, doing things they would not do. Sounds all too familiar, right? For those listeners looking to satisfy that inner sexual appetite, "In My Bed", you're invited to bring out the inner freak, "...Don't be shy, don't be scared, lets get right, take that chance, baby its alright, don't gotta rush, we got all night..." Hmm, sounds like a baby can get made that night! Slowing it down, with "Co-Star", a ballad, in which they make it known, they dont mind taking the backseat to their special someone, "...What do you have in store for me, girl...its your show, all I wanna do is Co-Star... " Everyone enjoys surprises, as long as they're beneficial!
Without spoiling the fun, enjoy the ride that Day 26 takes you on. Its full of emotional thrills. jolts and orgasmic fun! With an album like this, it'll have you anticipating their sophomore release. No matter how much BITCHASSNESS was portrayed on the show, it definately didn't carry on to the album. They may be rookies now, but with more experience, they'll be seasoned veterans for many years to come!
