P Diddy admitted singing on his new album, 'Last Train To Paris', was ''nerve wracking''
P Diddy admitted singing on his new album was "nerve wracking".
The 'Come With Me' hitmaker - best known as a rapper and role as a businessman - said his move to showcasing his vocal prowess on new album 'Last Train To Paris', released by his new group Dirty Money, was particularly daunting.
He told NME: "There's definitely nerves. It's nerve wracking because there's more singing for me, and being on tour with bandmates.
"You have a new concept, and it took people a while to buy into it. But as we've started performing they've started buying into the concept. And now people have expectations."
Diddy - who is joined in the group by singers Kaleena Harper and Dawn Richard- added returning to the music industry after a four year break, some people have forgotten how strong a back catalogue he has.
He said: "I think a lot of times people forget how many hits I've had. I take pride in having hit records that still play in clubs now.
"I take people on a musical journey, and when we bring that up to date, it just gets more intense."
