The group has been together for five years, ever since they formed the R&B band due to Diddy's Making the Band 4 in 2007. They have finally decided to call it quits and embark on their own separate journeys as solo artists and each member from Day26 is hopeful that their fans will show them each love and support equally as individual artists.
Day26 released the following statement addressing their breakup to their many fans:
"It is with great sadness and deep pain that we regret to inform you that effective immediately, Atlantic Records Platinum recording group, DAY26 have decided to take a break from the group and focus on their own individual projects. On behalf of all the members; Willie, Mike, Rob, Brian and even Que, we would like to thank all of the "fams" aka fans, dj's across the world, promoters, radio programmers, Bad Boy Entertainment, Starstruck Management, BET, VH1 and FUSE and all DAY26 supporters in general, for your unending support throughout these years.
We would also like to acknowledge that this journey would have not been made possible without the vision and mastermind of Sean "Diddy" Combs and of course MTV Networks for making a group of unknown men, the stars that they are today.
We simply thank you from the bottom of our hearts and really want you to know that the journey does not end here. We continue to wish each other the very best and continued success in all of our individual endeavors, and all we ask of you is to please give each member a chance and the opportunity to shine in whatever they do.
...And as the saying goes, this is not a goodbye, but a simply see you later.
God bless you all,
Much Love, DAY26."
