Diddy is on his fourth Dirty Money-assisted single from the upcoming Last Train to Paris album. And while “Hello Good Morning” has been the only one to break into the top 50 of Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 singles chart by peaking at number 27, Diddy says his track record will win out.
“I think a lot of times people forget how many hits I’ve had,” Diddy recently told NME magazine. “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.”
After signing to Interscope, Last Train to Paris was set for a June 29 release date. The album was rescheduled for September 20, yet has been delayed again. Justin Timberlake, Drake, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and others are scheduled to appear on the album. Despite a list of quality featured artists, Diddy counted his own anxiety as one of the factors delaying the album.
“There’s definitely nerves,” he said. “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.”
