"Hello, Good Morning," a new T.I. assisted single from Diddy's Last Train to Paris album has landed online.
The song is also one of T.I.'s first post-prison releases.
"Hello, good morning, how ya doing, what the mood is," T.I. raps on the track. "Welcome to the future, I'm the captain of the cool kids/The revolution's never been televised, great booty, better thighs, I ain't want to tell her bye/First I tell her hi, then I give her one and let her fly/Never tell a lie, tonight you couldn't find a better guy/King sh*t, flyer than anyone you could be seen with..." ("Hello, Good Morning")
Diddy's track began to circulate online late Monday (March 29) evening.
Diddy just wants to make you dance. The music mogul and his Dirty Money crew keep the party going until the early morn' on "Hello Good Morning," the T.I.-assisted single from his Last Train to Paris album, pulling into stores June 22. The Danja-produced, Rico Love-penned number boasts a thumping bassline and Puff's signature ad-libs ("Let's go, let's work"). (Rap-Up)
Earlier this month, Diddy revealed that T.I. would be featured on his upcoming album.
"Daddy's home baby! I'm here playing Last Train to Paris for the Interscope staff," Diddy told radio host Tim Westwood. "The US release date is June 22nd. So I'm letting you know, it's breaking news right here. Letting the world know, June 22nd. Why is it June 22nd? Because we want to set it up the right way. We wanna take our time, drop two more singles, drop a bunch of videos, we wanna come over here and do some shows and small venues, we wanna connect with some UK artists -- as a matter of fact, I have this record called 'Hello, Good Morning' and I'm looking, for the American version, T.I.'s on it, I'm looking to build with a UK artist for the UK version. I wanna do something real real special." (Tim Westwood TV)
Diddy said he is also saving space for artists like singer Janelle Monae.
"On Last Train to Paris, Wayne is on the album, Drake is on the album, we're trying to get [Jay-Z] on the album, trying to get Janelle Monae on the album," Diddy said in an interview. "Everybody that's on the album, it's not done in a regular appearance way. It's done in a unique way that's authentic. It's not about a single or [album sales]. It doesn't have that behind it. Wayne is on a record that's called 'Strobe Lights.' It's one of the first records where I hear him talking about love and how love has affected him. That's the type of things I wanted to get out of people if they were on the album. I wanted people to get out of their comfortzone and do something that was special. He did the videofor me over the weekend. 'Strobe Lights,' it's gonna be tough." (MTV)
Last Train to Paris arrives in stores Tuesday, June 22nd.
