From The Vault: Diddy – ‘Come To Me (ft. Nicole Scherzinger)’

Published: Sunday 1st Mar 2015 by Joe


When not promoting liquor around the world or pulling the plug on promising bands, Diddy is a recording artist who’s quite capable of delivering bodacious bops.
Case in point, his collaboration with Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger, ‘Come To Me’ – which is this week’s From The Vault pick.

Helmed by Jai, Younglord and the rapper-producer himself, ‘Come’ stood as the first single from ‘Press Play’, Diddy’s fourth studio album. Released in 2006, the cut was also Scherzinger’s second foray into solo stardom since joining the Dolls. Whether it had to do with Nicole’s then-midas touch or simply the fact that the tune is blazing hot, the track peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 in the United Kingdom. It placed #4 on the European Hot 100 Singles. Performed on number of occasions, Diddy offered live renditions with the Doll as well as with aspiring-singer/girlfriend Cassie and the first incarnation of Danity Kane.

Staying true to ‘Press Play’s urban-futuristic theme, the video presents the two artists surrounded by latest technology, as they try and navigate their way to one another.
Pieced together by Chris Robinson, the clip received ample airplay and charted at #4 on BET’s now-defunct 106 And Park.

*************

Say what you will about Diddy’s artistry, one thing is for sure is that he’s consistently pushing the envelope visually and sonically; as evidenced by his impressing resume, from the Biggie days to the dynamite Dirty Money dynamic.

As for Nicole, it’s songs like this one that makes it all the more puzzling that it’s taking that much for her to truly pop off…
Anyhow, join us while we reminisce about better days – musically – for these two talents.

        You dumb fleas come up with the same tired drags 🙂 Chris and Rih never really got into a physical altercation it was just to sell GGGB, Rihanna has confirmed it on more than one occasion, but the dumb H**+ want to keep using that same drag #LeStruggle and Rihanna’s forehead is perfectly proportionate so come up with something else #HiveLogic

        *H-I—V+ screaming at samantha blocking normal std words

        First of all, Rihanna’s head is not proportionate to her body. Secondly, whether it be true or not, the fact that Rihanna used Bobby Bieges fist for relevancy is just down right pathetic hahaha

    Ehh…I liked “Last Night” with Keyshia Cole and “Tell Me” with Christina Aguilera a hell of a lot better.

    Wonderful Mixture It Was,-Any Ways It Was Good While it Lasted!

    Press Play was a solid album despite Diddy’s lack of rap ability. Solid song and music. What’s really irritating is that Diddy always gives himself top notch promo but not his artist. If he promoted his artist as much as himself, he might have stars on his label. Cassie could be as big as Rihanna by now.

    • Queen of Trip Hop March 2, 2015

      I agree she could have been as big but he would have to keep her from the stage because there isn’t enough smoke and mirrors to hide her horrible ability to perform.

    I will never be here for him as an artist, but I did love this song. She’s so beautiful

    • BeyRihLiyah March 1, 2015

      right some people should just remain behind the scenes

    Nicole would do well to redirect herself back into this kind of music. The stuff she puts out as a soloist has been too generic, dull and cheesey. Who is her target audience?
    I really want her to put out a great record as she’s a fantastic singer and can perform her ass off.
    Shame she keeps on releasing the same old tired rubbish.

    She really thought she was going to be the Beyonce of her group, lol. She had a good thing with PCD, she was writing the hits, had lead, well 99% of the vocals and great backup dancers, I mean group members. It’s sad and crazy that she had success out the gate with them, failed at going solo, had more success with them again and back again failing at being solo. Gotta be a first.
    .
    it’s also funny how DK fans put them in this light as the biggest thing, when PCD had WAY more success than them. DK had to pretty much bite PCF sound to get a hit.
    .
    back to Flopcol, this would had been Beyonce IF DIL had of flopped, the “solo projects” was just a test to see ifshe had it or not. That’s why after the mega success of DIL, the next year was the final DC album, but at least they closed the group, unlike Nsync.
