Day26 stepped into the R&B world in 2007 and the collective has had a very interesting journey ever since. From being hit stars on Bad Boy Records and MTV to losing group members and disbanding; the fellas have been through it all. However, they recently got the net buzzing again when they announced that they were back together and ready to start fresh. They signed a new deal with BMG, will be dropping a new EP towards the end of this month, and are also planning to hit the road for a tour. To get fans reacquainted with what they are capable of, the guys are currently pushing a single called “Bulls–t.”

The production here is decent. The full structure, atmospheric musical ingredients, centralized rhythm, and smooth sailing vibe result in a highly enjoyable mixture. The hook is satisfactory as well. The vocals are soulful and pristine. The lyrics are wholehearted. The verses are sentimental. The fellas exhibit stirring melodies with despairing lyrics as they take the listener through a strenuous period of a romantic relationship. The underlying issue revolves around trust or rather a lack thereof. An extract from the ordeal includes: “I’m supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. But girl not with you. How in the hell did you ever become so damn insecure? Maybe it’s because of everything a n—a did before. But you say you trust me and that we moved on. I made the changes that you asked me for. I could have who I want, true. Damn girl I chose you. I’m frustrated, tired of cleaning this s–t up. If you ain’t gone listen, then f–k it, I give up.” Those words paint a tumultuous situation. All in all, this was a respectable comeback effort.

**My Two Cents: I was a huge fan of Day26 when they first emerged on the scene, so I was intrigued to hear that they were back in business. I dig the selection. The beat was choice and the content was appealing. The fellas still got it vocally and the theme is one that is a common hurdle between significant others. The group’s new EP The Return, hits music retailers on the 26th. So be sure to keep a lookout. -MinM
