Willie Taylor (formerly of Day26) is determined to establish himself as a solo artist after the group’s breakup earlier this year; a sort of “re-introduction” to the world, if you will. Enter “The Reintroduction of Willie Taylor,” the crooner’s new mixtape aimed to do just that.
The tape features previously released songs like “Instagram Ya’ Body,” featuring Jeremih and “Not Mine,” with Dondria. There are also appearances in the mixtape’s interludes by Syleena Johnson, Ginuwine, writer Rico Love, comedian Affion Crockette (who brings some comic relief), and host Big Tigger, who interviews Taylor about the Day 26 breakup. “We never stopped ‘Making the Band.’ And what I mean by saying that is it was always a competition,” Willie revealed. “[That] led to a lot of jealousy issues, which led to the downfall of the group.”
