August 26, 2006. That's the date when five supremely talented
young men were chosen by Diddy and MTV viewers around the world on
the blockbuster Making The Band 4 season finale. Now, those same
men - Brian Andrews, Mike McCluney, Qwanell Mosley (aka "Q"),
Robert Curry, Willie Taylor - are poised to become R&B's latest
breakthrough group, DAY26. The moniker is a tribute to the day when
Brian, Mike, Qwanell, Robert, and Will went from unknowns to
DAY26's eponymous Bad Boy Records debut is one of the year's most
anticipated releases. Recorded in just three weeks, executive
produced by Diddy, and featuring production from Mario Winans
(Diddy, The Notorious B.I.G.), The Runners (T.I., Chris Brown), and
multiple Grammy Award-winner Bryan Michael Cox (Usher, Mary J.
Blige, Mariah Carey), "DAY26" gives R&B fans what they've been
missing: seamless, soulful, sincere harmonies and emotional, sexy,
straight-up banging songs. Says Q, "There hasn't been a really
strong male vocal group since the 90's and that's what our vibe is.
To bring back that sound ."
DAY26 's R&B jones fuels the first single, "Got Me Going."
Produced by Mario Winans, "Got Me Going"'s sultry, fired-up groove
gets under your skin, and its lyrics are just as smoking. "It's
about feenin' over a female," Robert explains. "She's driving us
crazy, because we wanna go there but she's playing hard to get. So
basically, it's like "you got me going." I think it's one of the
songs that will appeal to the guys and the ladies."
Another track that moves the crowd is "My Bed," a club joint that
caters to the ladies. The theme? Brian laughs, "It's self
explanatory. Because when you stay in my bed, the first thing that
comes to mind is you know what I'm saying. You ain't going to
DAY26 get a chance to show their versatility with the heartbreaking
"Are We In This Together." "It's about a breakup; telling the
female that since you've been gone my life is so different," Q
offers. "It's real heartfelt. You can hear the emotions and the
pain because it's dealing with something we can all relate to."
One listen to "DAY 26" and you can hear the quintet's dedication,
talent, and soulfulness. But if you listen even closer, you'll pick
up on something else: mad respect not just for their craft but for
each other. As Mike tells it, "It was incredible to share something
with talented guys who love it as much as I do." Adds Robert, "I
love being with these guys. We're like brothers. Anything I need,
they got me... anything they need, I got them. It's like a
They all hail from different cities but DAY26 all share a lifelong
love of music and a desire to entertain. It's a passion forged in
childhood and with the support of friends, family, and a strong
Chi Town's Will sang in church, local talent shows, and events from
grade school to high school graduation. "I didn't even want to go
to school any more," he admits. "All I wanted to do was sing, and
I'd do anything and sing anywhere that would help me achieve my
Will's break finally came in 2006 when, while attending a party, a
local DJ urged him to audition for MTB4. "He said I had a really
good chance of winning the regional competition, and even though I
had some doubts, I prayed on it and I won."
Born in Detroit, Robert was nine when he performed at country star
Kenny Rogers's annual Holiday Show. Sitting in the crowd was a
player on baseball's Detroit Tigers. He asked the youngster to sing
the National Anthem at the team's opening day, making Robert the
youngest African-American to receive that honor. "Everyone was
screaming and clapping," Robert recalls, "and that's when I knew.
That's when that feeling came over me. There was nothing else in
the world that I would rather do than sing ".
Houston native Brian's first taste of the spotlight came at all of
three years old, when he sang (and danced too!) Michael Jackson's
"Billie Jean" at a local talent show. But Brian almost missed out
on the biggest break of his life. "The night before the MTB4
auditions my friends kept calling to ask if I was going to go. I
didn't even know what they were talking about! I wasn't sure if I
wanted to be involved, but, my friends called at 11 pm, and by 1pm
the next day I was standing on line."
Hailing from South Carolina, Michael was just a little kid when
he'd watch singers on TV and wish that he could be just like them.
After spending years honing his talent, Michael has gotten his
wish. "Last year I was working at a plant and now I'm doing what I
love to do. I can't go anywhere without people recognizing me, and
I like it. Because that means they're watching the show."
Qwanell grew up in Rochester and attended the same music college as
ex-Fugee Wyclef Jean. Q was fully committed to getting his
education. He'd always wanted to be a star, but he wasn't sure if
it was wise to abandon school for what could be a long shot. As he
struggled to make up his mind, he heard about the MTB auditions
being held in NYC and like that, his mind was made up. "I just went
with my gut and auditioned. Obviously," he laughs, "it ended up
being a good look."
When you've achieved your life-long goals and are now living a
dream, it's hard to put into words what the experience is like. But
there's one thing that DAY26 can tell you with out hesitation.
"Working with Diddy was so cool," Will says, speaking for his
brothers in harmony. "He gave us incredible advice; to always stay
on your grind. Don't ever sleep; always be ahead. Like a chess
game; you always make the move that's gonna protect you and take
you further." With their self-titled Bad Boy Records debut, DAY26
have made that move, and the future belongs to them. From DAY26
