Diddy to Perform New Single on ‘American Idol’
Apart from all his ventures, like vodka and a clothing line, Diddy still makes music from time to time. The Dirty Money frontman’s ‘Last Train to Paris’ is finally coming June 22 and that means the promo machine is about to step up to, well, Diddy levels. Vibe is reporting that Combs’ next high profile appearance is taking place on ‘American Idol’ on Wednesday (March 31), where he’ll be performing the new Dirty Money single ‘Hello, Good Morning.’
The track originally premiered in a promotional video for Ciroc that was filmed in Miami during Super Bowl weekend. A quick, Euro-influenced banger, ‘Hello, Good Morning’ features the full Dirty Money crew and a guest verse from T.I. There’s no official word if T.I. will join Combs on ‘American Idol,’ but the ATL rapper was officially released from prison last Friday (March 26) after completing a year-long sentence for gun possession
As for the long promo push on ‘Last Train to Paris,’ Diddy certainly plans on an expansive global strategy to get the word out. This even includes multiple versions of the new single.
“We want to set it up the right way,” he told British DJ Tim Westwood. “We wanna take our time, drop two more singles, drop a bunch of videos … I have this record called ‘Hello, Good Morning’ and I’m looking, for the American version, T.I.’s on it. I’m looking to build with a U.K. artist for the U.K. version. I wanna do something real real special.”
