We basically saw their rise and fall right before our eyes. Their public image kind of went down hill after Que was released from the group and they took a 2 or 3 year hiatus. None of the remaining fellas have really seen any type of fame aside from Willie, who had a few successful mixtapes and recently started in a BET play.
Nonetheless, they would like to pursue solo careers...they issued the following press release today:
“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 DAY26 supporters 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.
Do you think they have the star power to make it as individual artists?
