Diddy sets 'Paris' date
Rapper says he's ushering in 'train music' movementNEW YORK -- Sean "Diddy" Combs has set a Sept. 22 release date for his new artist album, "Last Train To Paris." The-Dream, Tricky Stewart, the Neptunes, Marion Winans, T-Pain, Rodney Jerkins and the Souldiggaz are among the producers on the set.
"I'm ushering in a new movement called 'train music,'" Combs claims. "I am going to show the world a new refreshing side of me. [The album] is deeper than any other stuff I have ever made. It's a profound love story. I've been a businessman for the past two years. It's time for me to focus on being an artist again."
"Last Train To Paris," which Combs says blends elements of electronica, hip-hop, soul and funk, is the follow-up to 2007's "Press Play," which has sold 701,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
