Diddy releasing album in September

Diddy’s planning to drop his next — and last — solo album September 19 2006 and to make it special, he’s recruited a lot of help, including Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, Brandy, Busta Rhymes, Nas and Will.I.Am.

“I’m taking from what I’ve learned from dance music, electroclash, techno, hip-hop, soul, and pop, and kind of fusing it together,” Diddy said, “It’s like everything in hip-hop is so hardcore with guns and problems and beef, and nobody is being romantic — not in a corny way, but just giving all of yourself. It’s still going to have that gangster vibe to it, but it’s a musical journey. It’s going to feel good.”

Diddy said the first single will be a club track. “We are going to bring a lot of high fashion, a lot of energy, a lot of sex, a lot of drugs, spirituality, good times,” he explained. “We’re going to have something for the kids, but it’s really an adult thing. It’s definitely pornographic, orgasmic, gangster, to the point where your soul feels good. It’s like a spiritual revolution. It’s like being sanctified.” And if that sounds like an odd combo, Diddy sums it up as “Little Richard-style for the ladies.”
