Slightly falls short of the hype, but a good start to bringing back R&B groups.
Jun 10, 2008
Diddy has been known to hype up artists that are soon to debut under his label, Badboy Records. And Day 26, the new band that he has formed, is no exception. After a great season of Making the Band 4 which aired throughout the Spring of 2008 on MTV, I was excited for the future of Day 26. A classic but innovative soul group compromised of five guys recruited all throughout the country.
The album itself is nothing spectacular, but certainly is what I've been waiting and wanting to hear from since the days of groups like 112, Jagged Edge, and New Edition. I think the group falls short of greatness just because of a lack of experience and a sudden drop into fame, but with time - I'm confident Day 26 will rise as leaders in the industry as great singers.
