Diddy – Dirty Money was a group consisting of Sean "Diddy" Combs, singer and dancer Dawn Richard, and singer-songwriter Kalenna Harper.[1][2] They were signed to Combs' label Bad Boy Records. The group disbanded in 2012.[3]

History[edit]

According to Combs, Diddy-Dirty Money was "a look, a sound, a movement, [and] a crew" and not about "drug money, illegal money, or anything negative ... for my new concept album Last Train to Paris, I wanted to do something refreshing, something unique, something forward for myself as an artist ... I wanted to tell a love story [but] I couldn't just tell the male's point of view."[2] Bad Boy A&R Daniel 'Skid' Mitchell told HitQuarters that Diddy-Dirty Money is creating a new genre of "futuristic soul".[4]

The group's first album, Last Train to Paris was released in December 2010.[5] Allmusic called it a "heavily European-influenced effort" that "mashes together Italo-disco, pop-rap, tech-house, and the sound of Bad Boy in its prime, with an all-star guest list that goes from T.I. to Grace Jones."[6]

On July 24, 2010, Diddy-Dirty Money performed at Sun Life Stadium in the Baker Concrete Super Saturday postgame concert following the Florida Marlins' 10–5 loss to the Atlanta Braves.[citation needed]

Diddy-Dirty Money appeared on NBC's Saturday Night Live on December 4, 2010.

In December 2010, Diddy-Dirty Money was featured in Timati's new song and video "I'm on You".[7]

Diddy-Dirty Money also performed "Coming Home" and "I'll Be Missing You" for the American Armed Forces at Fort Hood, Texas for WWE's Tribute to the Troops December 18, 2010.

Diddy-Dirty Money performed "Coming Home" and a cover of Far East Movement's "Like a G6" at the Maida Vale Studios for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge on January 20, 2011.

Diddy-Dirty Money performed "Coming Home" live on American Idol with Skylar Grey on March 10, 2011.
