Sean John announces the launch of their Fall/Holiday 2015 ad campaign, entitled Dream Big,the brand’s longstanding mantra.

Sean Combs lives by the words, DREAM IT, WAKE UP, DO IT. When he created the Sean John line, it was with this mission in mind.  This is a brand for those who not only dream but dream far beyond their limitations,” explains Jeff Tweedy, President of Sean John. “Our fall campaign concept truly celebrates those young men who bring their dreams to fruition. Jussie and Quincy are quintessential examples of the Sean John man and are true role models for our Dream Big concept.

Jussie Smollett has broken ground starring as Jamal Lyon on FOX’s mega hit show Empire. An accomplished singer/songwriter, Smollett wrote the songs “I Wanna Love You” and “All of the Above” as well as co-wrote the hit “You’re So Beautiful” on the Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire The single debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in March 2015. In the Sean John campaign, Jussie exemplifies the Sean John lifestyle wearing a range of looks from suiting to sportswear and accessories.

Coined as the Little Dreamers, the boy’s imagery features LeBron James Jr. (10), Bryce James (8), and Kiyan Anthony (8), sons of NBA superstars LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. The three are a great fit for the Sean John Boys brand and truly represent the next generation of big dreamers.

“As a brand, we look to the future of fashion. The Dream Big concept best communicates our brand positioning by examining those who, like Mr. Combs, had a dream and made it a reality,” Dean Arcuri, VP Marketing & Creative Services, added. “We are excited to partner with GQ in presenting our latest Dream Big campaign. The Sean John man much like the GQ reader strives for nothing but the best and these men in our campaign exemplify that ideal.”

Sean John’s Fall/Holiday 2015 collection will be available at Macy’s store across the country and online at macys.com beginning in August 2015.

How’s your been going day thus far?

good just got out the gym working out like a slave

Great to see that you value the importance of staying in shape. Can you tell us a bit about you guy’s upcoming album?

i can’t really speak to much about it but we do have a new single “MADE LOVE LATELY” OUT RIGHT NOW AND ON ITUNES.

Great song I might add. Will you guys be filming a music videos for either this track or any other potential single?

WE ACTUALLY FILMED IT 2 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS IT’S GONNA BE KRAZY!!!!!!!!!

I know you can’t speak much on the album but what’s the major difference between this album and your previous ones?

THIS WE TOOK IT BACK TO THE 90S

Taking R&B back to the good ole days? Did you have any favorite artists from those days who you drew inspiration from?

JODECI, BOYS 2 MEN, DRU HILL, GUY, THE LIST GOES ON,,,,,,,,,,,,,

So is it safe to say that Day26 is trying to revive the true R&B genre? Do you feel that the genre needs to be revived?

NO WE’RE JUST DO WHAT “WE” FEEL LIKE IS GOOD R&B THERES SO MUCH GOOD R&B OUT NOW

Day 26 started on one label and are now on a different label(Atlantic), how have you felt being a part of another label?

we love Atlantic records they welcomed us with open arms. We’re still Kool with Diddy to, and yes I started my own label Ambassador Way Entertainment (AWE)

You read my mind haha, How did you go about starting your label? Who we should look out for?

well I started it back in 2005 after I left Music World Music/ beyonce’ fathers label. I have any incredible roster but my first artist I’m releasing is @TheRealGRON he’s a hip hop artist from Houston, Tx

Almost done here! How much pressure is there on you guys for this new album?

not to show cocky but none we feel like we have amazing fams (fans) that support us in everything we do I anxious

What advice would you give to any artist Male or Female trying to make it? What do they need that these labels are looking for?

I would say Always keep god first anything is possible with him. I’d also say learn the business before trying to get in it. Educate yourself on what your about to embark on. Everything isn’t what it seems. Prepare your self mentally, physically and always come with 100% or don’t come at all

I appreciate the time that @MrAngel_day26 put forth for this Twitterview. I want to thank you for time, I understand that you’re busy working on something special with the guys. It was an honor to conduct this twiitterview with you
