After premiering “Finna Get Loose” onstage during Sunday’s BET Awards, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs has released an official version of the hypnotic single. “Loose” finds the Bad Boy Entertainment mogul trading rhymes with Pharrell over throbbing synth-bass, skittering programmed drums and chanted backing vocals layered into a choir.
Combs also tweeted an in-studio clip of the duo working on “Loose,” promising that the track will “debut” Tuesday via Apple Music. “I wanna snatch them out they fuckin’ sleep with some shit, with some tones they ain’t never hear!” an impassioned Combs says in the clip.
The BET performance was special for the performer, who reunited with a dozen of his label’s most popular artists – including Mase, Lil Kim and Jadakiss – for a 10-minute medley of iconic tracks like “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” “All About the Benjamins” and “Hypnotize.” The night of celebration, which featured a tribute to the late, great Notorious B.I.G., took a momentarily awkward turn when Combs fell into a hole on a platform leading to the stage.
Combs’ most recent album, 2010’s Last Train to Paris, was issued under the name Diddy. But the rapper-entrepreneur switched back to his original moniker, Puff Daddy, last year for “Big Homie” (featuring Rick Ross and French Montana) and “I Want the Love” (featuring Meek Mill), both singles from his upcoming LP, reportedly titled MMM. Last month on his Instagram, Combs posted a picture of Michael Jordan and announced the album’s release date as June 29th, though he has yet issue a statement about the album or its track list.
