They signed to powerhouse booking agency ICM: International Creative Management in early 2001 and were catapulted into the scene opening for major pop acts dominating the charts. Strange Wayz was able to fuse their Latino roots with a Pop/R&B swag that propelled them to heights only dreamed about in the streets of the Bronx. Strange Wayz signed a production deal shortly after touring and the group took on a different look and feel,
Out with the pop boy band sound and in with the more mature R&B Dance. With a change in sound, so did a change comes in the group members.
