After Danity Kane confirmed the group was back together, Day26 leaked "My Turn," a hint that the guys may be reuniting like their former Bad Boy label mates. The group is in label limbo since their last project 'A New Day' was cancelled by Atlantic Records. Now that Day26 fans have hope that the quintet will reassemble, an immediate album demand has been made by loyalist. Now is a good time for groups to release albums, following the recent success of TGT.
Tiffany Evans understands her powerful vocals chords,and with that knowledge, the songstress selected a song that punctuates her strength. On "Naked", Evans emotional vulnerability is felt through vibrations as she sings, "I finally let go of being sheltered from the world as they know me, it’s all a lie / The truth they will finally see in me."
“‘Naked’ is a very special song to me that I wrote to my fans. It literally came from my heart and spirit,” Evans said.
A new artist that popped up on our radar is Canadian singer HunnyB. With support from Joe Budden, the single "Round & Round" was pushed up to the third position on Singersroom's Indie Rotation.
