*Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs announced this week that his first solo album in years was titled “The Love Album: Off the Grid” will drop next month. 

The hip-hop mogul released a documentary-style trailer to accompany the news, featuring Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, and Mary J. Blige, People reports. 

“I present to you my new album. The Love Album: Off the Grid,” Diddy, 53, wrote alongside the trailer on Instagram, along with the project’s Sept. 15 release date. “R&B is alive!” he added. 

“Why am I doing this? Especially with the success that I’ve had, especially where my life is, how stressful and treacherous this music industry is. Why would I just come back in here and have to do something that I don’t have to do?” asks Diddy in the clip. “My heart has been broken. I’ve still got that question of, like, ‘Am I ever gonna love again?’”

The video features Diddy with Yung Miami from City Girls, his late ex-girlfriend Kim Porter, and his 10-month-old daughter Love Sean Combs, whom he shares with Dana Tran.

Several of Diddy’s A-list peers are also featured in the trailer, including Swae Lee, Jozzy, French Montana, DJ Khaled, Teyana Taylor, 21 Savage and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. 

“The Love Album: Off the Grid” will be Diddy’s first solo album since “Press Play” in 2006.

In related news, we reported earlier that Combs has launched an online marketplace for Black-owned businesses and brands.
