Dirty Money Covers ‘Like A G6’

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.

How Much?: ‘Last Train To Paris’

This week just happens to be the release week for two of the most delayed albums in recent memory. The Diddy-Dirty Money album, ‘Last Train To Paris’, has been in the works for two years now and has finally seen the light of day.

The album has helmed five singles thus far, the most successful being ‘Coming Home’, which reached a peak of  24 on the Hot 100 this week.

With ‘Coming Home’ gaining popularity, I have the feeling that the track will sell more as time goes on, rather than making a strong impression the first week.

Performance Corner: Diddy- Dirty Money

Last night Diddy and his group Dirty Money did some major promotion for their album ‘Last Train To Paris’ on SNL. The group performed two songs including new single ‘Coming Home’.

The group performed the song on the AMA’s, but the performance left much to be desired. I have to admit that the song is growing on me, even though I feel the same Continue reading

‘Coming Home’ Diddy-Dirty Money (Song/Video)

Rating: C+

I’ve been meaning to write a review on this song since the AMA’s, and since the video was just released I figured I should do it now before it was too late.

‘Coming Home’ is technically the fifth song released from the groups album ‘Last Train To Paris’. The album is set to finally Continue reading

‘Loving You No More’- Dirty Money feat. Drake

Diddy-Dirty Money probably have one of the most delayed albums in recent history. Currently the album does not have a set release date, which is over a year later that it’s original release date. Say what you want about Diddy, but he makes some smart buisness decisions.Dirty Money have yet to have a smash song to their name, so why risky having a low charting/selling album? There first single ‘Hello Good Morning’ was a moderate hit, peaking at 27 on the Hot 100 and 13 on the R&B chart. The recently released ‘Loving You No More’ Continue reading

‘Hello Good Morning’ Dirty Money feat. T.I.

Rating: C

Diddy formed the new group Dirty Money when he announced plans for his album ‘Last Train to Paris’. The group consist of himself, Kalenna Harper, and Dawn Richards of Danity Kane. Previously the group released two singles, ‘Love Comes Down’ and ‘Angels’, both of which failed to do anything on the charts. ‘Hello Good Morning’ is the third attempt to gain some buzz and hopefully a hit single for Diddys album ‘Last Train to Paris’. The song was produced by Danja, who has had a stream of hits these past few years. The beat is honestly the strongest part of the song. The song starts out with an epic string introduction that leads into a drum section to lead into the vocals. The heavy synth lead beat is meant to get you moving, which it does quite well. T.I. again is consistent in delivering a good verse. The problem with the song is that although it has a good dance beat and features a high profile rapper it still fails to deliver. The song was written by Rico Love, who is a great song writer. He has written a number of hits in the past but sadly this is not one. The song gets more annoying as you listen to it because it repeats itself over and over again. Also the flow of the verses is not good, its too choppy and does not flow into a catchy tune. The first time around the verse sounds ok, but the problem is that it repeats three more times during the song. The chorus does not work at all, you don’t finish song the humming it. A good song will leave a lasting impression on its listener, but the impression this song leaves is forgettable. The song has a break down where Diddy raps. Diddy is not that good of a rapper and he continues to say “lets work” and “let go” over and over again in the background. He is too distracting in the song, but thats more of his style. Diddy has been criticized for being too vocal in the background for years, so at this point I think its safe to say that this is his style. The song debuted at 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 after it was preformed on American Idol. It has since fallen. I think the video will cause the song to rise a little bit, but I do not see it surpassing its peak of 34. They need to come harder than this if they want to reach the top. With artist like B.O.B. and Lady Gaga ruling the charts with their creativity and genre bending sounds, Dirty Money needs to step up their game to contend. Their previous single ‘Love Comes Down’ was much better, but for some reason it never charted. All three of the artist are talented and have proved with a previous single that they are capable of much more. Hopefully they will be able to drop a good charting single before ‘Last Train to Paris’ drops.
