So last night in my 1am itunes prowl I stumbled upon Diddy-Dirty Money’s new album Last Train To Paris. Another failed attempt by Diddy I thought. More “All About The Benjamins.”Â More of Puffy/Sean Combs/Diddy’s giganto ego.Â A little sampling and I discovered how wrong my assumptions were.
Not knowing what “Dirty Money” was, I got my google on and found out that it is his new group consisting of a girl from Danity Kane and songwriter Kalenna Harper.Â The new album with Diddy-Dirty Money also features 16 guest vocalists from the likes of T.I., Lil’ Wayne and even Grace Jones.Â He is describing it as an “electro-hip-hop-soul funk” album which has been influenced by his experiences at Ibiza aka paaaarty island.
Wherever Diddy dreamed it up, it is brilliant.Â It’s modern soul/hip-hop without all the gangsta that will keep banging hits out through 2011.Â Even the album cover looks like something Groove Armada would put out.Â I bought the whole $13.99 worth of it and think it will be my purchase of the month.Â The first song I sampled was “Coming Home” featuring Skylar Grey.Â Also, check out “Hello Good Morning” featuring T.I.
