Just knowing different things that will help further our careers as a collective. Each anniversary we usually call each other to talk about it, but this one is special. You have all pursued solo ventures over the years. It makes it that much better.
In a group, everyone has their specialities that they can bring to the table. A post shared by DAY26 officialday26 on Aug 29, at 5: Did anything about the group dynamic change when the cameras were off during Making the Band?
I think the biggest thing about Day 26 Who Is Q From Day 26 Hookup Now that we were always a group. It was something that we had been working on individually for years, so for us to come in and fight our guests, the biggest thing was actually waiting for the cameras to go off so that we could really zone out and not be a public affair and just be something that we could grasp, becoming one with each other.
Like Will said, when go here cameras turned off, we worked harder. We say Diddy gave us a platform, and what you do with that platform when he gives it to you is up to you.
We became hard workers. We became more dedicated. We just wanted to make Day 26 the best that it link possibly be. You guys previously reunited for your "Made Love Lately" single back in Why was that not a full-fledged reunion that led to an album? It was more of a label situation when we were changing labels, so we had to get that situated before we could put out more material.
That was like the big weight and the purpose of us taking so long to put out new material. We had to get the click side situated. That was when we parted with Bad Boy [ fake cries ]. I could speak from the standpoint of, I think, the most of us. This business moves a lot. As long as the relationship is good… and our relationship with Diddy is good.
It was Young City. Control room, 20 seconds please. Man, you- Let's get it! Okay, and all right.
It was a situation that occurred that put us in the situation like it was. Most of us in this group have had deals prior to now. This is not the first label deal. We just had to move to the next phase of our career. And the reason being for that is because really after the first album… the first album was like a handpicked album. Of course it was a classic. The second album, Diddy had taken his hands off a bit, and let us do our thing.
I feel like half of that album is what we felt were… it was more in our creative control.

The other half was…. Yeah, we felt like it was some of that included, but we were already — like I was saying, before that we did The Return EP in That was just pretty much a growth from the second album, and us really taking over link.

It was something that was said and it was all coming from emotion. So it was like, "Why would you leave it out?
Now we give fans Day 26 the way we wanted to give it to them. The footage will be released. You can have artists like H. Music always changes all the time.
So, I never want to be in that category. I find there are a lot of artists I like right now. I say our sound has always been dope. But this is just even more mature. The evolution of Day 26 from then until now. Of course, great harmonies. The track selection I feel like is really, really good.
If you had The Returnthen you know what that portion of our lives sounded like.
Of course it was a classic. Which making the Band contestant was directly affected by hurricane Katrina losing her home and mom's dance studio? Control room, 20 seconds please.
