In one of many Instagram posts shared by Diddy, the Bad Boy Records founder can be seen having a good laugh after breaking the exciting news.
King Combs’ new single with Kodak black “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” went to No. 1 on Urban radio this week, while Diddy’s “You have to move on” single with Bryson Tiller topped boats Billboard Adult R&B Airplay Charts this week.
“The way you feel when you and your son do something that’s never been done and make history and go #1 at the same time!!” Diddy wrote in the first Instagram caption. “We’re sending this out to all dads!! WE CAN DO IT!!! LOVE! LOVE!! LOVE.”
In a separate post, Diddy added: “Words can’t describe how proud I am of my son @KingCombs!! He put in the work!! They made him work harder and he worked harder!! Congrats I’m proud of you son!! I love you!!! #1 song on Urban Radio!!”
In a coinciding video on the latter Instagram post, Diddy is seen holding a cake while surrounded by loved ones and offering some words of support to his son.
“This is for my son Christian. He put out 1, 2, 3, 4 maybe 5 records and he didn’t stop,” Diddy said. “And when you don’t stop and you say damn it and you go after it, you know, and you did it to your mother too, and you did it to your own son, and we’re proud of you.”
King Comb’s latest success comes after he told it HipHopDX in 2020, that his father has always been the harshest critic of his music and that first impressions matter to him, even if it’s his son.
“Me and my pops have a great relationship and we’re really close sometimes, like it feels like we’re brothers,” Combs shared DX via Zoom. “We’re just super cool. But Pops, he doesn’t play, he always makes sure I’m on my Ps and Qs and that I’m working hard and not really taking anything for granted. He’s hard on me sometimes, but at the end of the day, that’s my pop. That’s what he’s got to do, so he’s cool.”
As for “Gotta Move On”, the single was released in May with a Teyana Taylor directed video arriving soon after. It serves as the debut single from Puff’s upcoming album, Off The Grid Vol. 1, which will be his fifth studio effort, and his first since the 2006s Tap Play.
The album will also be his first project released under Love Records, the The music mogul’s R&B imprint launched earlier this year in collaboration with Motown Records.
“Music has always been my first love, Love Records is the next chapter of getting back to love and making the best music of my life,” Diddy said in a statement at the time. “For the label, I’m focused on creating timeless R&B music with the next generation of artists and producers. Motown is the perfect partner for my album and I’m excited to add to its legacy.”
