[With tomorrow's release of Last Train to Paris, the ladies of Diddy's Dirty Money, Dawn and Kaleena, give you the Top 5 reasons to support their first effort.]
1. New Flava In Ya Ear
The biggest reason you should go out and buy this album is because it's a new movement that people are ready for. Music is changing and Dirty Money is the new movement that everybody wants to get on. That's the biggest thing. This is a new sound, a new flavor and it's a new "black". Everybody wants to be cool, so you need this album. This is what the cool kids are doing. All the cool kids are gonna have the album so you need to follow the leader. -Dawn
2. The Gang's All Here
The next biggest reason is because it's fresh and dope and has banging features on there. I know a lot of people love the artists that are on the album. Picking up this album will be a good way for you to hear your favorite artists doing something different with somebody that's really dope. That's another reason why you should go and get the album, which is to see how different the features are done and listen to how much out of their element they are. We're not gonna tell you what our favorite collaboration is but you will be able to see once you pick up the album, because it has one of our biggest icons on there. When people go out and buy the album, they'll see this feature is a really big deal to us and I think nobody has had this kind of collaboration. So expect to hear Dirty Money doing the biggest and best stuff on here with these features. -Kaleena
3. Take That, Take That, Take That
I think the third biggest reason is that this is something new for Puff. He's going down in history whether we like it and love it or don't like it and don't love it. He's going down in history and to just be a part of that, to see two girls that had a dream and to see it come true in the arms of P. Diddy, Puff and Diddy. It's crazy. That's a reason within itself to go and get the album, to see what's going on. -Kaleena
4. Brown Girls Rock
The fourth biggest reason for us is because this is the first time you've seen two brown sisters together in a long time. I'm talking about since Changing Faces. There hasn't been a group of brown girls rocking with another powerful brown man and having a positive message in a long time. And this is no disrespect to the industry, but I think Diddy is categorized as just one thing. I believe we're breaking the mold with the color of our skin, not that that's an issue but just the fact that we're showing women that it's possible to have two brown skin women together and making it to the top together, loving and embracing it. I think that's a big deal for us. We're making chocolatey skin look good and I think it's [young women will embrace this]. Growing up, that color was a problem for people, and now people are starting to warm up to the idea that you don't have to be a certain skin type whether you're white, black, green or whatever in order to make great music. I think we're setting a tone for that. -Dawn
5. You'll Love Our Dream
The last reason you should go out and buy this album is because this was our dream to do this. We have a love story that we're telling that the whole world can relate to. It's a relatable album. When you put it on, you feel like, "Oh my God, I felt like this before and I feel like this now." It's one of those messages that'll help you get through something. It'll help you understand that there's light at the end of the tunnel. And whatever road you choose to take, it's okay. We thank God to be here. Please go out and support the album. -Kaleena
