This moment has been a long time coming for Dawn Richard. Singer/songwriter, former member of Danity Kane (heck I say once DK always DK..lol), former member of Diddy Dirty Money, etc..etc…I say that because this woman has not stopped since the day we were first introduced to her for MTV’s Making the Band. Her grind has been relentless, and not without struggle, yet by faith she has stood her ground, trusted God to do what He said He would concerning her…and now he she is, on the cusp of her first full length debut album: GoldenHeart. I have been pulling for Dawn since day one..so I’m very excited for this album to drop. I’m not sure there is even a category for this music…that’s what makes it dope to me. So take a listen to the snippets, and then click the link to pre-order the album.

Willie Taylor is set to re-introduce himself to the world after the break up of Day 26. Well today he dropped a hot new duet with So So Def’s Princess of R/B Dondria called, Not Mine. I have heard Dondria create some of the dopest duets with some of the best male r/b singers, but this one right here goes straight to the top of my list of favorites. The track was produced by B. Alexander. Check it out.

MTV’s Making the band, male platinum group, Day26, have officially called it quits. This comes as no suprise to me. Every since the releasal of the youngest member Anthony Que Mosley, I for one was no longer a fan of them as a group. They released an official statement. Check it out.
“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. (Source)
Even though I can’t understand why groups can’t learn how to work with one another in order to make great music is beyond me. With 2 platinum albums under their belt, I guess success was too much for them..smh. Now we will need to see what they will offer the music industry individually.
My favorite joint from Day26 is a joint written by none other than former couple, Dawn Richard (formely of Danity Kane) & Anthony Que Mosely-Perfectly Blind.
Willie Taylor (of the now defunct group Day26) drops a nice cover of R. Kelly‘s classic 12 play( helps me understand more why R. Kelly continues to show the vast array of skills he has, because this new generation will believe that this is Willie’s song..lol). It’s the first joint he has released off of his upcoming mixtape: The Reintroduction of Willie Taylor. You could never deny the talent that this man possess, nor the sexy he possesses. So check out the cover, and click the download button. And if you don’t have it already, download his last mixtape: Sex Tape. You get the theme with Mr. Sexy..lol.
Although I’m not sure what is going on with this group, Day26, one thing is for sure the skills are still in tact. Check out this Bryan-Michael Cox produced joint, About You.
There probably isn’t a more anticipated album for 2012, than the new look Day 26. I for one am definitely looking forward to what the group will sound like for this new year. Check out a new single from the upcoming album called Radio. I’m actually feeling this joint.
You can cop their latest single Made Love Lately, now on Itunes.
