It seems that Diddy’s contract with Warner Music Group/Atlantic Records is now over and he’s making plans to move over to a different label for his upcoming release.
His hotly anticipated, much-talked about release, Last Train to Paris will now be released via Interscope Records.
Implying a new Bad Boy-styled imprint may be in the offing, Combs said in a statement:
“Now that the term of the Warner deal has ended, I have elected to accept an opportunity to move my recording career and future label venture to another company.”
This is interesting, considering the much-rumored departure does not affect WMG’s joint venture with his Bad Boy Entertainment imprint and its acts, which include Cassie, Day26 and Cheri Dennis, among others. They will continue to move through Atlantic.
