“Last Train To Paris” Isn’t Exactly Raking In That Dirty Money

- By Bossip Staff

Last week, Diddy was all proud that his heavy promo convinced 100,000 people to go pick up Last Train To Nowhere. This week? Not so much, we think.

The album dropped from number 7 to number 44 on the Billboard Hot 200 charts, after moving roughly 30,000 copies in week two. It’s gonna be a slow crawl to Platinum for Dirty Money.

But it’s not all bad news for Urban music.

The week’s highest new entry comes from Jamie Foxx’s “Best Night Of My Life,” which parties it up at No. 6 with 144,000. It’s Foxx’s third straight set to see a late December release, following “Unpredictable” (issued on Dec. 20, 2005) and “Intuition” (Dec. 16, 2008). The latter set opened at No. 3 with 265,000 while the earlier album climbed in at No. 2 with 598,000 (before hitting No. 1 the week following).

Eminem’s “Recovery” is right behind Foxx, flying 15 rungs to No. 7 with 137,000 (up 100%). It benefits from sale pricing in the iTunes Store and also zips 15-1 on the Digital Albums chart with a whopping 513% jump in sales.

Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday” stands at No. 8 for a second week, selling 133,000 (up 36%).

Keyshia Cole’s “Calling All Hearts” is the list’s second biggest debut, starting at No. 9 with 128,000. Her last album, “A Different Me,” was released, coincidentally enough, on the same day as Foxx’s last effort, on Dec. 16, 2008. “Different” launched at No. 2 with 322,000, one step ahead of “Intuition’s” 265,000. Both albums were blocked from No. 1 that week by the woman who reigns this week: Taylor Swift. Her “Fearless” set was in its third non-consecutive week atop the list, selling 330,000.

Closing out the top 10 on the Billboard 200 is Rihanna’s “Loud,” climbing one spot to No. 10 with 111,000 (up 33%). Right behind her at No. 11 is the debut of Keri Hilson’s sophomore effort “No Boys Allowed” with 102,000. Hilson’s first release, “In a Perfect World,” debuted and peaked at No. 4 in April of 2009 with 94,000.

We definitely didn’t expect Keri to break 100,000 copies her first week. Guess the ho sh*t paid off.

    Diddy is tarnished news. He will never do what he did when he was with Lil Kim, Biggie and Mase.

    • kalifa

      diddy should focus on building a quality roster at bad boy…..he let go so many good artists

      he needs to realize and accept his shortcomings as an artist and genuinely help persons with real talent to do their craft.

      take note from Akon who makes tons of money when lady gaga sells and Usher who profits off justin bieber.

      realize when you’re getting old and let the fresh blood make money for you

  • Honey

    Diddy really thinks people are still intrested in what he’s selling…smh

  • Ice Harvest

    @Peppa: I couldn’t have said it better myself. I don’t think Puffy or whatever his name is, has done anything of real substance since Biggie’s murder. 😉

  • Jay

    No buys music anymore good luck hitting 300,000 now any of you.

  • http://www.theinfamouslife.com miss infamous

    Diddy is full of himself and OVEREXPOSED! I think this ‘gimmic’ would have worked better if Diddy recruited an unknown or up and coming male r&b/hip-hop artist instead of putting himself in the group! I just cant take Diddy seriously and he doesnt give the other 2 girls a chance to shine.

    • Jadonnie Ava Marie

      You ain’t never lied Diddy is waaayyyy too Overexposed he needs to take at least a year off

  • eric

    he is old. he is good at alot of things but recording music just is not one. the girls actually sound amazing minus diddy.

  • sam

    dawn was better off staying with danity kane. danity kane was a credible group until diddy started that mess stealing dawn for that bootleg train to paris. this danity kane revenge.

  • kidrebelny

    Obviously it wouldn’t sell he’s actually a nobody who continues to try to stay relevant by hanging out with people who are actually doing something, he is such a lame. Dawn and that hard face looking chick probably could do bad all by themselve

  • Entoon

    this mofo was sweatin my timeline on twitter every 3 secs talking that dirty money ish! damn nukka I can’t be supportin ur ho habits, 6 kids and lavish lifestyle when u punk az can’t even follow back on twitter! LOL! startin 2011 and beyond only real talent gets my $

  • ddane

    Where’s Ciara?

  • jkdfjkaj

    the album is sick tho!! yall should get it

  • Blackitalian

    I think the cd was pretty good. His problem is that people are simply not interested in him like that anymore. If he wants to continue producing, he should do it behind the scenes. He should change his name to something Jewish and start producing artists under that name and quietly collect his paper. But he can’t do that cuz he always want to be up in ya face, stuntin’ and showboatin’. Folks are over him and his antics. If he wants to continue to survive and thrive he needs to dial it back a bit.

  • maru-chan

    Like charlamagne said:

    “How is last train to paris going to make diddy relevant again MUSICALLY?”

    Its not and diddy and these chicks need to sit down. I listened to this album and honestly every song sounds the same, gay club techno beats and diddy’s no singin’ a$$ making the track an uber flop.

    I can dig the g-club beats (USHER’S NEW ALBUM IS ENTIRELY COMPOSED OF GAY CLUB BEATS!) I’m done with diddy.

    • Mrs. Rance

      I know that is why Usher can’t get a red cent out of me either. And I got like 4 of his CDs in my collection, but I am not a techno fan. Since he said F me, his base, then I say F him too. I ain’t payin for music I don’t like. And Jamie Fox is lucky I got his CD as a gift or he wouldn’t have gotten my support with that garbage either.

    • brianna bermudez

      Real talk.

  • afro-british

    diddy is past his sell y date. one word EXPIRED,thus what we call it in england.

  • Big leonard mckelvey

    Diddy cd should be on the first train to the garbage dump. Diddy give it up your done.

    • Curious1 aka Flawless Beauty

      LOL…CTFU… (gigglin’like a banshee…hee-hee-hee-hee….





  • kt

    Diddy can’t expect platinum when heis using D’list talent.He better do a relaunch and get Beyonce or Alicia Keys on that.

  • kt

    But the damage is already done.

  • Charlotte

    He played too many head games with the release date. Also I cannot support him giving people high hopes of working with him like on ‘I Want to Work for Diddy’ and ‘Making His Band.’

  • You Smell Me??

    I, umm “purchased” LTTP, and it is WACK. I can swear Dirty Money is a group, yet all I hear is Diddys annoying voice throughout the whole album. Those other 2 chicks sing the chorus on like, 3 songs.

    Mr. Combs thought he could sell some records under a “group”, yet didnt actually involve the group… Selfish a$$.

  • Orlando

    It’s cool and all… for the club. I really wouldn’t want to listen to it in the ride or sit at the crib and listen to it. Plus after about 10 minutes I’m almost ready to pull my hair out listening to Diddy and his monotone crap

  • ThatBKChick

    “The last Train wreck to Brooklyn” will be on the Dollar Store selves by next Christmas. Take-That and That Diddy for screwing over so many people’s careers..LMAO!!! #EPICFAIL

  • mary

    Diddy can’t rap so I damn sure did not want to hear him sing…’Nuff said.

  • wisdom2

    There is no reason for Dawn not being a STAR-Headliner.

    Diddy us cursed.

    He needs to let those young ladies do them. He can’t see he’s holding them back!

  • ELLA

    Diddy’s Dirty Money album is fire!
