With my respects to Jay-Z, it is Diddy and not he who is the real business (…man) of the rap industry. On top of founding Bad Boy Records, Sean John, his own movie production company, and two restaurants, the artist formerly known as Puff has produced three seasons of MTV’s Making the Band, yielding three semi-successful supergroups. The most recent of these is Day26, a Pop/R&B boy band composed of five young singers with voices good enough for reality TV. The third single off their self-titled debut album is In My Bed, a poppy up-tempo jam about where all the magic supposedly happens. Helping them out on the beat is Timbaland protégé Danja, who has carved out a sizeable corner of his career doing production work for Making the Band winners.
