Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy has revealed his fears surrounding the upcoming release of his Last Train to Paris album set to drop later this year.
According to Diddy, he is nervous about singing on the LP.
“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, rapper Yung Berg talked about 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)
Last month, Diddy tweeted that he was locked in the studio with hitmaker/singer Mario Winan working on his album.
“In the studio REALLY finishing up the album with my brother @Mario_Winans – one of the best producers of all time- BELEE DAT!,” he tweeted yesterday (September 1).
“YOU CANT MAKE THIS SH*T UP!!”
“THE STUDIO IS ON FIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRE!!!!!!!!!”

Over the summer, Diddy’s “Hello, Good Morning” co-writer Rico Love said the LP would be a classic.
“If he comes out and the record is not good, then y’all are gonna trash him but with the fact that he went in and he said ‘I’m gonna take my time until I’m happy with what I’m delivering to the people,’ I really take my hat off to Puff, I take my hat off to the whole Dirty Money crew — it’s tough for an artist to deal with that type of pressure,” Love said in an interview. “I think it’s gonna be one of the best albums to come out, and I’m really gonna say this, it’s gonna be one of the best albums to come out in the past five, six years.” (Rap-Up TV)
A confirmed release date for Last Train to Paris has not yet been revealed.
