Former Bad Boy Records recording group Day26 is gearing up for the release of their third studio album ‘A New Day,’ later this year. After the separation from Bad Boy, the set will be released on Atlantic records and will mark a new start for the reality TV branded group.
“Coming from the reality TV and really understanding the realty TV show, it is obvious that we were supposed to be done by now,” member Willie Taylor tells Singersroom. “We still here, still doing our thing. Still signed to a major record label. Still able to get out here and make this money.”
Without Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs at the helm of the new effort, the group raves about the LP being their best work to date due to their creative approach.
“We have way more creative control but at the end of the day I am not really mad at the previous projects,” says Taylor. “The first album with Day26 which was a great album, I feel like that was handpicked by Diddy. It could have been anybody who made the band to make that album. The second album we found the majority of those records and then Diddy came in and added the records he wanted in there. This album is all us of course with the help of our A&R Darryl Jones at Atlantic [Records]. It has pretty much been us writing the records, finding the records [and] the whole nine yards. I feel like this is going to be our best project to date.”
All eyes will be on Day26 to see if they can continue their success without their former Bad Boy boss.
