The biggest names in pop music are all getting on board Diddy-Dirty Money’s Last Train to Paris.
The music mogul has recruited an all-star lineup for his first album in nearly four years, including Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, T.I., Swizz Beatz, and Bilal. “We have most of the game that called excited about being on the album,” he told Rap-Up.com during Tuesday’s BET Awards press conference in New York. “It doesn’t sound feature heavy. They sound like they’re a part of the movement and part of the sound.”
Diddy expressed his content with the oft-delayed project. “I think this is one of my best albums and I’m truly blessed to have these two queens [Dawn and Kalenna] beside me,” he said. “You get to tell a story—it’s a love story about finding love, losing love, and getting it back again. I’m a man, I can’t tell a woman’s side. These are two beautiful, courageous young women and they tell the truth on the album. I think this is an album that’s innovative, creative, and exciting, and it’s something the game needs.”
On the eve of his album release, Diddy and his Dirty Money crew will take the stage and host the post-show at the 10th Annual BET Awards on June 27.
