Nearly 20 years after Diddy’s last solo album, a project about love from Mr. Love himself was to pay tribute to Kim Porter. The mogul and his late ex shared a 13-year relationship and had three children together: King, D’Lila and Jessie Combs. She shockingly died aged just 47 from lobar pneumonia in 2018.

In an exclusive interview with Access Hollywood, Diddy revealed that he wrote “Kim Porter” for her to visit him in his dreams. The album features a stacked roster that Diddy calls the “Super Bowl of R&B.” He brought in Babyface and John Legend as collaborators because he knew their angelic voices would “penetrate the heavens” to reach Kim.

“I met Babyface, and I really told him my story with Kim, and I showed him this picture, and I said, ‘Babyface, I know your voice will penetrate the heavens above. I “I need you to sing this song to Kim, and I need her to hear it so she can come visit me in my dreams, and that’s the story I really told her,” explained Diddy.

With the R&B legend writing and singing, “Kim Porter” was already blessed with timeless talent. Diddy stepped it up even further by adding John Legend to Kim’s tribute.

“And we started writing the song, and I was like, ‘I feel like I really want to make sure she gets the message,’ and I called John Legend, and I was like, ‘John, I need you to sing to the sky above’ and that’s how we got ‘Kim Porter’. And she came to visit me in my dreams. So I, you know, was able to living the best of both worlds,” he continued.

In addition to wanting to capture his own love story, Diddy wanted a revival of the music that births babies. He added that “Off The Grid” refers to the time it takes to really establish that romantic connection without interruption. The album, released on September 15, featured Mary J. Blige, Jazmine Sullivan, Coco Jones and Justin Bieber.
