If you're a Diddy-Dirty Money hater, or a preordained hater of Last Train To Paris, this is your last exit before some pretty unabashed Diddy worship. You have been warned.
A lot of folks have been skeptical about Diddy's long delayed electronic-tinged dance album. And that's understandable. From what I know of Diddy, he's good at lots of stuff like making money and making interns do cross-borough cheesecake runs on foot. Great rapper, of course. One of the greatest. But what does he know about dance music?
Who cares? Diddy knows about making good records and creating good times. And, so far, everything we've heard from Last Train To Paris (we still can't stop bumping "Hello Good Morning") suggests he knows exactly what he's doing.
The latest single and video from Last Train To Paris is "Someone To Love Me." And ironically (considering the rant I just went on) it's the most hip-hop track we've heard from Dirty Money thus far. Over a sly drum loop, Diddy does his talk-rap thing while the girls--Dawn and Kaleena--sing a classic '90s Mary J. Blige-style hook (think "Real Love") on the chorus.
The video? Diddy pacing through a parking lot wearing his sunglasses at night with the gals in tow. Nothing extraordinary, but very cool.
