Diddy Reveals Release Date + Trailer for ‘The Love Album: Off The Grid’



Diddy has unveiled the official release date for his upcoming album, “The Love Album: Off the Grid.” The founder of Bad Boy Records took to Instagram on Tuesday (August 22), declaring that his first independent album in nearly two decades will be released on September 15.

The upcoming project, slated for launch under his new Love Records imprint, marks Puff’s first solo venture in more than 15 years, succeeding his 2006 album, “Press Play.”

The cinematic trailer for the album featured cameos from many big names including The Weeknd, 21 Savage, Busta Rhymes, Justin Bieber, French Montana, Mary J. Blige, DJ Khaled, Swae Lee and Summer Walker. Other potential features were hinted in the Instagram post, tagging Yung Miami, Babyface, Teyana Taylor and Jozzy.

In May 2022, the iconic music exec. launched Love Records. The label’s inaugural release was singer/songwriter Jozzy’sSongs For Women, Free Game For N-ggas,” which was released back in February.

“Music has always been my first love, Love Records is the next chapter is about getting back to the love and making the best music of my life.”

“For the label, I’m focused on creating timeless R&B music with the next generation of artists and producers. Motown is the perfect partner for my album and I’m excited to add to its legacy.”

Diddy further explained his “Love” era and why his new record label would be focused on R&B during an interview with Vanity Fair in August 2021.

“[The ‘Love’ era is about] my people taking time to feel like it’s all right to love,” he said. “Take time to huddle up your tribe, take time to communicate and know your power. Take time to heal. [Taking care of] yourself without feeling like, oh, you’re going to be labeled a racist now because you talk about taking care of yourself.”

“I feel like R&B was abandoned and it’s a part of our African-American culture. And I’m not signing any artists. Because if you know better, you do better. I’m doing 50–50 partnerships with pure transparency. That’s the thing. [The new label is so that] we can own the genre.”

“We don’t own Hip Hop right now. We have a chance to — and I’m going to make sure that we own R&B.”

Three singles from “The Love Album: Off The Grid” by Diddy have since been released. These include “Act Bad” featuring City Girls and Fabolous, “Gotta Move On” a collaboration with Bryson Tiller, and “Sex in the Porsche“, which sees PARTYNEXTDOOR lending his talents.
