As our own M. Burmy noted in his review of Day26‘s last Booth feature, Stadium Music, the R&B five-piece are the only Making the Band group still intact—Danity Kane, O-Town, and Da Band have all gone their separate ways. As it turns out, Stadium Music was only a promotional cut, and Day26 were holding out for a record that would truly capture the public’s attention (and provide insurance against the fate that befell the aforementioned groups). The official Forever in a Day lead single finds Robert, Brian, Willie, Que, and Michael letting a special lady know just what they have planned: Imma Put It On You. Adding crossover appeal, verses by two big-name rappers bookend the cut; Yung Joc mixes it up “like juice and liqueur” in his opening verse, while MTB mentor Diddy contributes a few high-rolling come-ons on the back end. The dense instrumental by Blaze The Champ (featuring some dramatic pipe organ chords), along with the star-studded cast of collaborators, add up to a cut that’ll have listeners everywhere rushing to cop the digital download on the 31st, as well as the group’s sophomore album April 14th.
