The Train is almost at the station, and the closer it gets, the bigger the stars onboard.
Diddy announced Tuesday (May 18) during the 2010 BET Awards nominations press conference that Justin Timberlake will be on Diddy-Dirty Money’s Last Train to Paris album, now slated to drop at midnight on June 28 following the star-studded show, he revealed for the first time.
The former ’NSYNC frontman joins confirmed guests Drake, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Swizz Beatz, T.I. and Rick Ross on the project.
Diddy didn’t disclose the name of the JT collaboration or describe the song. Timbaland, however, is believed to be a contributor to the set and it may be safe to assume that the pair, who work together often, assisted Diddy with a tune for his project. The song would mark Diddy and Timberlake’s first time together on a record.
Last week, Diddy visited the MTV News offices and said that Last Train to Paris, which originally was billed as an electro-sounding collection, is actually more R&B-and soul-based.
The collection is thematic, he’s said, following a story line of Diddy finding love and losing love as he ventures from London to Paris in an attempt to resurrect the faltering relationship.
“One of the things we’re trying to represent is emotion,” Diddy told MTV News late last year about the album. “Not being afraid to show emotion on record. A lot of records out right now — no disrespect to them, but they’re all surface. It’s about what people have, or a dance.
“All our records are gonna be about love, feelings and emotion. Last Train to Paris is a love story and the most vulnerable album I’ve ever been involved in. It’s raw emotion — you get a feeling, a vibe.”
