Two girls and one guy walk into a studio...
…And make magic! From Da Band to Danity Kane to Day 26, Diddy has orchestrated some of the best new-age boy/girl groups. But as much as he’s known for creating great artists, he’s known for breaking them up. Case in point: Diddy — Dirty Money. The trio made up of Diddy, singer/dancer, Dawn Richard (formerly from Danity Kane), and singer-songwriter, Kalenna Harper.
You would think that because he was actually a part of the trio, that there would have been some sort of longevity with the group, but nah. Their one and only album, Last Train to Paris, was not only amazing, but it peaked at No. 7 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and No. 3 on the R&B chart. “Hello Good Morning,” “Coming Home,” “Loving You No More” and “Angels” were hits on their 2010 debut album. Fans were expecting much more but in 2012, the trio disbanded. Since then, the two female members of the group have tried to make waves in the industry while Diddy has stayed afloat.
Sean “Diddy” Combs
Diddy hasn’t stopped making moves in the industry. After DDM, the multi-million dollar mogul released MMM (Money Making Mitch), a mixtape featuring an all-star list of featured artists and No Way Out 2, the follow-up album to his 1997 release.
Diddy On Tour
Diddy is currently on the Bad Boy Reunion Tour with the rest of the long list of veterans from the label. Diddy – Dirty Money isn’t included on the tour.
Before auditioning for Diddy’s 2004 reality show, Making the Band 3 Dawn was an NBA dancer for the then-New Orleans Hornets. After making the band, Danity Kane, who later disbanded, Dawn was one of the only girls who remained close to Diddy, which led to her joining DDM.
