Diddy's new sound: Songwriter The-Dream is 'really surprised'

Hit songwriter The-Dream (Rihanna’s "Umbrella," Beyonce’s "Single Ladies") is gearing up for the March 10 release of his own sophomore album, Love vs. Money — but in the meantime, he’s staying busy writing songs for Diddy’s upcoming Last Train to Paris. The-Dream tells EW he’s penned two potential cuts for Diddy’s album in recent weeks. And at least one of them, titled "Change," finds the many-named mogul leaving behind his familiar rap flow for a melodic croon. "It’s one of the biggest records I ever wrote," boasts The-Dream. "He sang the record gracefully. He really pulled it off, and he really surprised me. Because it’s Puff, nobody expects it. [But] he’s got the goods."

No date has been officially announced for Last Train to Paris, but The-Dream says Diddy is aiming for a late-spring/early-summer release. The-Dream also revealed that he’s planning to team up again with previous collaborators Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige on tunes for their respective upcoming projects.

UPDATE: Diddy’s label announced Feb. 19 that Last Train to Paris will hit stores on Sept. 22. "I’m ushering in a new movement called ‘train music’," Diddy said in a press release. "It’s a profound love story.  It’s me with my shades off.  It’s the truth."
