E! and Diddy join forces exclusively on E! News, Nov. 29

E! NEWS launches in Canada next Monday with a world exclusive: Diddy – Dirty Money, the hot new music group composed of multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning Sean “Diddy” Combs, Dawn Richard of Danity Kane, and singer/songwriter Kalenna Harper, will treat Canadian viewers to the highly-anticipated first look at their new music video, “Coming Home,” exclusively on E! NEWS, Monday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. ET (visit eonline.ca to confirm local listings).

The song, produced by Alex da Kid and Jay Z, is the latest single off of Diddy – Dirty Money’s upcoming album, Last Train to Paris, which will be released Tuesday, December 14, 2010.

Following the worldwide video premiere on Nov. 29, E! NEWS will air an exclusive interview with Diddy, Dawn and Kalenna. Diddy will then follow up with two appearances on the network during the week Last Train to Paris is released. The hip-hop impresario will guest co-host E! NEWS on Thursday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. ET and on the following night, Friday, December 17, he’ll appear on E!’s THE SOUP at 10 p.m. ET.

The “Coming Home” video will also make its online debut on www.eonline.ca immediately following E! NEWS’ east coast airing on Nov. 29.

For Diddy, Last Train to Paris follows his 2006 solo album, Press Play, which debuted #1 and went gold. His 1997 debut, No Way Out, was seven times platinum, followed by Forever (1999) and The Saga Continues (2001), which both went platinum.

Last Train to Paris is an electro hip-hop soul funk experience that blends elements of UK grime, Mediterranean techno and the 808s of American hip-hop, representing a sound Diddy calls “train music” – new dance music for the new decade. Other artists featured on the album include T.I., Lil Wayne, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Drake, Chris Brown, Grace Jones, Trey Songz and Bilal.

Diddy first teamed with Kalenna to write for Dawn’s group, Danity Kane, which he formed via his 2004-2005 MTV series, MAKING THE BAND 3. Danity Kane then became the first female ensemble in history to debut at #1 with their first two albums, and following their success, Diddy – Dirty Money was created in 2009.
