In another segment of 'WHO GIVES A DAMN NEWS', yet another Boy Band from MTV had decided to call it quits. This platinum-selling group came up in the trenches of MTV's BOOT CAMP and has graced the charts with a few hits. Just as recent as last month the group hinted at another group album, and a reality series, but today, in an open letter to their fans, they have announced their BREAK-UP!!! GUESS WHO after the JUMP!
Day26 has announced that they are 'taking time off' from the group to focus on solo projects. In an open letter the members, Willie, Mike, Rob & Brian tell their fans that they are disbanding. If you remember, the guys were picked from a pool of thousands to be a part of Diddy's 'Making The Band' on MTV. After two successful discs, the group in breaking up.
(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 DAY26 supporters in general, for your unending support throughout these years.”

“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.
Hmmm, seems like if you are a BadBoy artist and you leave the fold or get kicked out of the fold, your career goes to HELL in a handbasket. (I got that saying from my Granny--don't know what it means, but it sounds good-lol). Let's take a roll call, Total, Faith Evans, Danity Kane, Cheri Dennis, 112, Black Rob, Carl Thomas, where are you?? Absent!
Oh well, at least we have the memories:
