On Sunday, August 26, 2007 Diddy chose his 5 man group (DAY26) which included Robert, Qwanell, Willie, Brian A, and Mike. P. Diddy surprised everyone by announcing Donnie J would be signed as a solo artist under Bad Boy Records. It was a sensible move by Diddy, considering that Donnie was voted the fansâ€™ favorite artist!
