As the first father-son team in history to top the charts simultaneously, Diddy and his son King Combs are now celebrating their historic accomplishment.
In one of Diddy’s numerous Instagram postings, the founder of Bad Boy Records can be seen laughing heartily after being informed of the joyful information.
“The way you feel when you and your son do something that’s never been done and make history and go number 1 at the same time!!” Diddy wrote in the first Instagram caption. “We sending this one out to all the fathers!! WE CAN DO THIS!!! LOVE! LOVE!! LOVE.”
In a separate post, Diddy added: “Words can’t describe how proud I am of my son @KingCombs!! He put that work in!! They made him work harder and he worked harder!! Congratulations, I’m proud of you son!! I love you!!! #1 song on Urban Radio!!”
In a video that also appears alongside the later Instagram post, Diddy is seen cheering for his son while holding a cake and is surrounded by loved ones.
“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 fuck that, and you go for what you know, and you did it for your mama too, and you did it on your own son and we proud of you.”
King Combs’ most recent success comes after he said in 2020 that his father has always been the biggest critic of his music and that first impressions count to him even if it’s his son.
“Me and my Pops got a good relationship, and we’re real close sometimes, like it feels like we’re brothers,” Combs said via Zoom. “We’re just super cool. But Pops, he don’t play, he always makes sure that I’m on my Ps and Qs, and that I’m working hard, and not really taking nothing for granted. He be hard on me sometimes but at the end of the day, that’s my Pops. That’s what he’s supposed to do, so he’s cool.”
“Gotta Move On” was released as a single in May, and a Teyana Taylor-directed video followed shortly after. It is the first track to be released off Puff’s next album, Off The Grid Vol. 1, which will be his fifth studio album and his first since 2006’s Press Play.
Additionally, the record will be his debut endeavor under Love Records, the R&B label that the music entrepreneur established in partnership with Motown Records earlier this year.
“Music has always been my first love, Love Records is the next chapter is about getting back to the 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.”
