Handpicked by Diddy on MTV’s Making the Band 4, fans watched Qwanell, Robert, Willie, Brian and Michael go from contestants to successful boy band. The fellas’ self-titled debut appeared at number 1 on the Billboard charts but follow-up singles failed to chart and the group quickly disbanded on the show's second season. In 2010, after a tumultuous departure from Bad Boy, Day 26 moved to Atlantic Records. The group began working on a third album entitled A New Day, which produced the single “Let It Go” featuring Rosco Dash. Qwanell (also known as Q) also released a solo single called "Medicine" under the new moniker Anthony Q.
