Sean “Diddy” Combs is wasting no time in getting back to his musical roots following the release of his R&B-focused project, “The Love Album.”
According to Diddy’s son, King Combs, the hip-hop mogul is already working on a hip-hop album.
In a recent encounter with TMZ, King Combs shared some insights into his father’s musical plans. “I’ma be on the next one. We doing the Hip Hop album coming soon,” he revealed.
This news comes shortly after the release of “The Love Album: Off The Grid,” which featured an array of R&B and hip-hop collaborators, including The Weeknd, 21 Savage, French Montana, Busta Rhymes, Justin Bieber, Swae Lee, Fabolous, Burna Boy, and more.
Diddy’s latest album marked his first venture into full-fledged R&B, and it showcased an impressive lineup of artists such as Mary J. Blige, John Legend, The-Dream, Babyface, Ty Dolla $ign, and Jazmine Sullivan, among others.
September has been a monumental month for the Bad Boy Records founder.
He was honored with the key to New York City and his hometown of Mount Vernon. Additionally, he received the Global Icon Award at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), where he also delivered a memorable performance.
This appearance marked his first VMAs performance since 2005 when he participated in a tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G. alongside Snoop Dogg.
Diddy was nominated in four categories at this year’s VMAs, including Best Hip-Hop Song for “Gotta Move On (Queens Remix)” and Best R&B Song for his feature on Metro Boomin’s “Creepin’ (Remix).”
During a recent interview on The Breakfast Club, Diddy discussed his decision to “reassign” the masters to artists from the Bad Boy roster, including The LOX, Ma$e, and The Notorious B.I.G., a process he initiated two years ago.
Reflecting on this decision, he explained, “You don’t have to make changes in the world, but if you have a chance to do the right thing, you do the right thing. That’s a world I want to live in. I want to be the change that I want.”
Diddy’s commitment to evolving and making positive changes in the music industry aligns with his desire to follow the path that he believes is guided by a higher purpose.
“It’s really about me evolving and me wanting to do the right thing. We should all look where we’re at in the world today. I’m doing things that God tells me to do… I’m not for everybody. Jesus wasn’t for everybody,” he emphasized.
