In a statement published by HipHopDX
, Day26 announced earlier this week that the group would "take a break" to focus on solo efforts.
This followed a slew of Twitter messages
from members Brian Angel, Willie Taylor and Michael McCluney last week, hinting that such an announcement may come.
From what the group has said for a while, they were no longer signed to Bad Boy Records and were Atlantic Records only. But, given conflicting information, we had maintained coverage of them to see where the dust settled. Now that it has, we will cease coverage of Day26.
During their time with Bad Boy, the group released two albums. Their 2008 self-titled debut hit #1 on the Billboard 200, spawning a successful lead single in "Got Me Going." A little over a year later, they followed with "Forever in a Day," which reached #2 and featured "Imma Put It On Her."
You can read their full statement below.
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.
