Diddy has been recruited by Metro Boomin for the official remix to “Creepin'” featuring The Weeknd and 21 Savage — check it out below.
Metro unleashed the remix on Friday (March 17), and it finds the Bad Boy boss adding a brand new verse to the Heroes & Villains track. The record contains the same beat and features, but with Puff adding a fitting touch to the heartbreak anthem.
“They ain’t real and they ain’t Puff/ Ain’t a place in this world that my feet ain’t touch/ I got visions that cost millions and made billions/ Baby girl, we can make love and make trillions,” he raps.
The remix is a full-circle moment for Diddy as he was also featured on Mario Winans’ “I Don’t Wanna Know,” which Metro sampled for “Creepin.” “I Don’t Wanna Know” itself sampled Enya’s “Boadicea” and EPMD‘s “You’re a Customer.”
The updated song received a visual makeover courtesy of director Christian Breslauer, which finds Metro Boomin, Diddy, The Weeknd and 21 Savage being surveilled by a mystery woman on a rainy night. It also contains a cameo from Mario Winans.

“Creepin'” quickly became a fan-favorite on Metro Boomin’s Heroes & Villains, reaching No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album itself debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 185,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, marking Metro Boomin’s third No. 1 album.
It’s also the sequel to Metro’s previous album, 2018’s Not All Heroes Wear Capes, and serves as the second installment in a planned trilogy.
In addition to The Weeknd and 21 Savage, Heroes & Villains boasted appearances from a host of A-list names including Future, Travis Scott, Chris Brown, Young Thug, A$AP Rocky, Gunna, Young Nudy, Don Toliver, John Legend and the late TakeOff.
Drake was almost a part of that star-studded cast, but Metro Boomin left him off having felt he wasn’t needed.
“He really wanted to get on it, but I was letting him know that it was really just done for real. I was really just set on how it was,” he said of the Travis Scott and Young Thug-assisted “Trance.” “I was like, ‘Bro, I ain’t trying to sell you no dream. I’m locked in where it was.’
“He had hit me and was just like, ‘Let me see if there’s anything you could add to it.’ He was like, ‘If you don’t like it, then whatever.'”
The super producer continued: “He did some stuff, a couple parts was cool but like I just felt like just even with like Slime verse and Trav verse and the outro, it wasn’t just no room. It wasn’t nothing personal… I just ended up using the original and I guess the other one just leaked or something.”
