There’s a new Bad Boy in town. Diddy passes the torch to his son, Christian Combs. The 18-year-old rapper, who goes by King, debuts not one, but two new singles.
The first, “Party,” is a summer-ready jam featuring his SNL and CYN crew members. Over a sample of Queen Pen’s classic “Party Ain’t a Party,” the young Combs channels Bad Boy’s golden era while having some fun.
Get down to his feel-good sounds below (via HNHH).
The second single, “One for Me,” features a sample of another familiar ’90s joint, SWV’s “You’re the One.” Produced by Tank, the love song finds King showing a softer side and spitting game to the ladies (“Marathon, you been runnin’ through my mind lately”).
King performed both songs on “106 & Park” during the BET Experience. He recently signed to Bad Boy/Epic Records and is readying his debut album.
Listen to Diddy’s heir to the throne.
