Diddy’s return to music appears to be imminent, especially now that he’s joined Metro Boomin for the official remix to “Creepin’.” Over the past few years, Diddy’s expressed a strong desire to get back to his R&B roots. He launched a record label, Love Records, and delivered a handful of singles, but it seems likely that we’ll see him deliver some bars on his next project, too. This week, he returned to the fold as he gave Metro a verse for his latest hit record which also includes The Weeknd and 21 Savage.
It’s a full circle moment as Metro Boomin sampled Mario Winans “I Don’t Wanna Know” for the remix, which Diddy features on. This time, he taps into Puffy Daddy with ad-libs that scatter across the sample before eventually laying down a verse of his own. Diddy breathes his billionaire status throughout the record with vivid reflections of yacht sailing with City Girls. Though The Weeknd and 21 Savage’s verses remain the same, Diddy spruces up the record with his presence.
Metro Boomin’s latest single has already seen incredible success before the remix with Diddy. As Heroes & Villains debuted at the top of the Billboard 200, “Creepin” has had a strong presence in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song peaked at #3 on the chart while maintaining its spot within the top 10 since its release. Perhaps Metro Boomin’s inclusion of Diddy will help the song finally hit that top spot.
Besides his appearance on Metro’s hit record, Diddy has some major plans in the works. As Paramount Global looks to sell BET, reports emerged of Puffy’s interest in buying the network. He later confirmed the news in a tweet, explaining that he’d like to buy BET to begin building a “Black-owned global media powerhouse,” on top of Revolt TV. We’ll keep you posted on any more information on that. For now, check out Metro Boomin’s “Creepin” remix with Diddy, 21 Savage, and The Weeknd above.
Never lie to you, life ain’t perfect, we just live it
Fuck what they say we did, we just did it
I’m the DeLeón sipper, bad bitch getter
With the top down screamin’ out “Fuck them ni***as”
