Day 26 take a step in the right direction today, unveiling the latest song pulled from their forthcoming effort ‘The Return.’
A cover of Silk‘s 1993-released ‘Lose Control‘, the number sees the fellas unleash the vocal magic that once placed them atop R&B’s food chain, and- if paired with the right creatives- will see them outperform themselves with their comeback album.
An impressive offering from the five-piece below…
See what we mean?
Sure, while it may be tempting for ’26‘ to release cuts akin to the boozy club-geared cuts the loud minority are enamoured by, one needn’t look any further than Tamar Braxton‘s ‘Love & War‘ and Miguel‘s ‘Kaleidoscope Dream’ to see that grown, sexy & contemporary is the way to go!
As it stands, the group’s styling and photography goes a long way to age them, making their bid to pull in younger audiences an uphill struggle.
However, if their suits, ties and dark imagery is replaced with Jeff Kim-esque styling and GQ style promo shots, winning over the 20-somethings while pulling in the ‘grown & sexy’ would soon see that uphill struggle become a walk in the park!
What they should be aiming for on a sonic tip?
