Diddy-Dirty Money are currently in the UK promoting their debut album ‘Last Train To Paris’. American artists usually do some awesome covers in many of the radio stations over seas, and the group decided to do their own rendition of the hit song ‘Like A G6’.
The cover of the song is actually good, with the girls adding their own flare to the song. As always, Dawns unique vocals stole the show, but the rest of the group sounded fine as well. It was a smart song to cover considering that it was a worldwide hit, something the group has yet to achieve.
With Diddy being the way he is though, they ‘upgraded’ the song to a G7,which is not a plane at all if you listen to the recording all the way through. Irony.
Even though the group has only recorded a live version of the song, it has been getting some radio play in the UK, which should result in good publicity for them.
So far ‘Last Train to Paris’ has sold 172,000 + copies in the US since it was released on December 13, 2010. The album has the potential to sell more than that though since their currently single, ‘Coming Home’, hit a new peak of 4 on itunes this week. The track has hit a peak of 18 on the Hot 100, but should hit a new peak due to digital sales this week.
The fact of the matter is that ‘Last Train to Paris’ is an awesome album, and I hope that people will start taking notice. It has a few good radio singles, so I see the album as being a slow burner rather than a flop.
