Sean “Diddy” Combs is back, baby! The multi-platinum music mogul took to Instagram on Wednesday to share the release date for his first album in 15 years.
“OFF THE GRID. The Album. September 24, 2021. Welcome to the LOVE ERA!” Diddy wrote in the caption, sharing two images, which reveals OFF THE GRID is the first volume of an upcoming series.
Diddy hasn’t released an album since 2006’s Press Play, which topped the all-genre Billboard 200. The 51-year-old is best known for making his mark on the hip-hop industry with his Bad Boy Record label.
Between the 90s and early 2000s, Diddy has ushered hip-hop and R&B artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, Craig Mack, Black Rob, R&B trio Total, Faith Evans, Danity Kane, and more. Since then, Diddy has also gone through several name changes, including most recently changing his middle name to “Love” in May.
According to Billboard, Diddy recently hired managers Wassim “Sal” Slaiby and Amir “Cash” Esmailian, both known for managing The Weeknd. It’s unsure what OFF THE GRID Vol. 1 will sound like, but fans can expect the album to feature hip-hop, R&B, and pop songs. Regardless of what you’ll hear, Diddy said he’s “making a classic.”
