Tropes that relate to Day26:

  • Break-Up Song: "Since You've Been Gone, "Bullsh*t, Anything (unreleased), Truth Is A Lie, Just Should've Told You
  • Darker and Edgier: The packaging/photoshoot of Forever In A Day compared to the first album
  • Epic Instrumental Opener: Since You've Been Gone, In My Bed, If It Wasn't For You, Think Of Me, Stadium Music
  • Intercourse with You: In My Bed, Come With Me, Co-Star, Don't Fight The Feeling, Imma Put It On Her, Stadium Music, So Good, Babymaker, Love Faces, One Night Only,Make It to The Bed, R&B Singer, This Christmas, Made Love Lately
  • Long-Runner Line-up: this year (2018) marks 11 years since they were formed. That is remarkable considering who formed them, the show that they were on and the label that they were signed to
  • Meaningful Name: the meaning of the name Day26. It is the day (8/26/07) that Diddy formed the group.
  • Melismatic Vocals: all five display this but Brian and Robert do it the most
  • Mr Fan Service: Willie (even being married doesn't stop him!) but all of them can be considered
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Que. Fans and the other members in the group (and the media) rarely call him Qwanell
  • Pretty Boy: Some fans consider Willie to be this. The fact that his name in the movie Chocolate City 2 is called Pretty Boy pushes this trope
  • Pelvic Thrust: Mostly during performances. What do you expect from a male R&B group?
  • Two First Names: Willie Taylor, Brian Andrew(s)
  • Self-Titled Album: Their debut
  • Silly Love Songs: Silly Love and Reminds Me of You
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: on the cover of their first album (and when they dress up)
  • The Teaser: Come In (My Doors Open),Co-Star, Come With Me, Shawty Wats Up (done by Que), Just Getting Started (done by Willie), Made Love Lately (done by Willie) Girlfriend (done by Willie), Need That, Your Heels,So Good, Are We In This Together, Don't Fight The Feeling, Just Should've Told You (all done by the producer of those songs Bryan-Michael Cox, Loving U, Love Faces and Brian talks at the beginning of One Night Only.
  • Vocal Tag Team: all 5 members sing lead and sometimes take turns singing parts. Mike and Robert in Girlfriend is a great example of this
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: Shawty Wats Up, Loving U, Imma Put It On Her, Lemme Luv U Girl
