V Factory is an American pop/R&B/urban boy band produced by former pop artist Tommy Page who is now a VP of A&R for Warner Bros. Records. The members have yet to confirm what the "V" stands for. Wesley Quinn, in an interview with Popstar! Magazine, stated that "the V is a hidden meaning between the five of us." He also states that the meaning will come out like the FedEx box in the movie, Cast Away, which stars Tom Hanks.[1]
