This was bound to happen sooner or later, so this bit of news doesn’t surprise me at all. Let’s just call it the “Bad Boy Curse”. But anyway, Day 26 and Bad Boy have announced that they have both decided to part ways.
After becoming stars via Diddy’s reality TV series “Making The Band,” Day26 enjoyed a semi-succesful run with the label.
According to a report from TheBoomBox.com, but say they are still a part of Diddy’s extended family.
“Bad Boy is always our family, but we’re with Atlantic right now,” member Willie Taylor told the site.
Although they became stars on reality television, Day26 are now determined to prove that they have what it takes to make it on pure talent, rather than TV ratings.
“We really want to get people focused on the artistry, on the music,” Taylor explained. “I think a lot of people lost it with the entertainment of the show. So now, we really want to show people what we’re all about, that we do our thing whether its on stage, in the studio, writing and producing — we do it all.”
Day26 are currently in the studio working on their third group album.
