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.
