Diddy-Dirty Money. What can I say about Diddy? “Last Train to Paris” possesses a sound that lures you into its element. Diddy pushed the envelope with this project, stretching the fusion of hip hop & R&B genres to newer heights. This album is what’s next. I hear unique musical and vocal arraignments that break many typical industry molds.
While flowing through the album I reflected on several questions. Is this a Diddy album? At one point I asked, where is Dirty Money? Finally I asked, is this a compilation album? I came to the realization that this IS a Diddy compilation album. While reading the credits, everyone from Rick Ross, The Dream, Mario Winans , and even Shawn Carter were mentioned as writers. You can hear some of their influences in the songs, which makes this new sound seem familiar.
This is a very well put together album lyrically and production wise, it’s on the next level of innovation. LTTP has a sound of mass appeal that puts you in different moods, but not emotionally all over the place. It is well balanced and flows from beginning to end. So many songs stand out to me, such as the melodic r&b cut, “Yesterday” ft Chris Brown and the triumphant song, “Coming Home”. This album will scoop up numerous awards and maybe even a grammy.
