Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy has finally announced a release date for his upcoming and delayed Last Train to Paris album.
According to Diddy, his Interscope Records debut will hit shelves this winter.
“What’s up y’all,” Diddy said in a video. “It’s your boy. I’m about to start doing a lot of Diddy blogging. Last Train to Paris coming out December 14th. December 14th. December 14th. I’m just trying to show off my sh*t, yeah. Check it out, we here, at the video shoot for this joint called ‘Loving You No More,’ Rodney Jerkins produced it. This is how we kick it, super fly n*gga sh*t.” (P Twitty TV)
Last week, Diddy opened up about his album release fears.
“There’s definitely nerves. It’s nerve-wracking because there’s more singing for me. You have a new concept, and it took people a while to buy into it,” he explained. He added that despite the new direction of Diddy-Dirty Money, he’s not about to totally abandon his past. “I think a lot of times people forget how many hits I’ve had,” Diddy added. “I take pride in having hit records that still play in clubs now. I take people on a musical journey, and when we bring that up to date it just gets even more intense.” (NME)
Recently, producer/rapper Yung Berg discussed his involvement on the album.
“A lot of people don’t know that I’ve been behind the scenes producing and writing records for a lot of different artists. I actually have two records on Diddy’s Last Train To Paris album that I produced, one called “Make Love To You” and “Half On A Baby” that I co-wrote as well. They’re both slower, R&B type songs. He actually sent the “Half On A Baby record to Rico Love, who I’ve been building a relationship with.” (VIBE)
The follow-up to 2006’s Press Play was originally slated for a fall 2009 release.
“It’s deeper than any of the other stuff I have ever made,” Diddy said. “Last Train to Paris comes out in September …T-Pain gave me permission to use the vocoder, the auto-tune, and he showed me various tricks that nobody knows but him and myself.” (All Headline News)
Last Train to Paris is scheduled to drop Tuesday, December 14th.
