On Tuesday, Diddy released the album trailer for his highly anticipated project. The trailer contains behind-the-scenes footage of the music mogul in the process of recording the album that will be his first release in 17 years.
"Why am I doing this?" he says in the trailer. "Especially with the success that I've had, especially where my life is, how stressful and treacherous this music business is why would I just come back in here and have to do something I don't have to do."
Diddy then speaks on his heart being broken by the death of his ex Kim Porter and whether he'll be able to love again. The trailer then shows Diddy in the studio with the likes of Justin Bieber, Swae Lee, Mary J. Blige, Babyface, 21 Savage, The Weeknd, and more.
"I had to go off the grid to really lock in. I'm so addicted to my phone, so addicted to my work, so addicted to the bullshit," says Diddy before the video shows him in a more aggressive tone where he seems to be stressing out. "Right now, I'm on the edge, and it's just too much going on that's unnecessary. You can't do it all."
The trailer closes out with the official album title and release date which is Sept. 15. On Instagram, several of Diddy's peers praised the trailer and congratulated the 53-year-old on the next journey he's about to embark, including Yung Miami, Busta Rhymes, French Montana, DJ Khaled and more.
Diddy's upcoming album went by another name (Off The Grid Vol. 1) and was originally announced to drop on Sept. 24, 2021. His last solo album came in 2006 with Press Play, and the last album he put out was in 2010 with his group Diddy Dirty Money and their album Last Train To Paris.
