Blige, Janet Jackson and the Notorious B.I.G. Combs, has also released four multi-platinum albums and won his third Grammy Award for the #1 song “Shake Ya Tailfeather” from the Bad Boys II soundtrack, which he executive produced. In 2006, Diddy released Press Play, his hugely anticipated follow up album which debuted at the top of the charts awarding him the number one album in the country.

Marking his return to producing hit albums, Sean served as co-executive producer on Mastermind, the eagerly awaited album from rap superstar Rick Ross this year.
Sean’s success in music has translated into a collection of business including the screen. With television, Diddy and MTV have always had a special relationship beginning with his famous videos and show stopping VMA performances. In June 2003, Diddy teamed up with MTV to find the next big hip hop group with Making the Band II which aired for three seasons.
