Another awards show another special award for Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Marking his triumphant return to the MTV Video Music Awards stage as he is set to receive the Global Icon Award and perform for the audience. The show will be airing next week on Tuesday, September 12 at 8 PM ET/PT. The VMAs will be at Newark, NJ’s Prudential Center.
Diddy will receive this prestigious honor due to the success he has had over his career as well as his contributions to music, business, and the entertainment world. In addition to receiving this award, Diddy is making a return to the stage to perform for the first time in nearly 20 years since the 2005 VMAs.
That’s not all!
As Diddy has returned to the recording studio, he has earned four nominations in this year’s VMAs. These include the songs, “Gotta Move On: Queens remix,” and “Creepin” (Remix). His nominations include two for “Best Collaboration,” as well as “Best Rap” and “Best R&B.”
VMA highlights for the “Bad Boy” executive include his debut performance of “Mo Money Mo Problems” back in 1997. Five years later, he returned to the stage in 2002 to perform a medley of “Bad Boy For Life” and “I Need A Girl (Parts 1 & 2).” Hosting duties in 2005 found him in Miami where he led an orchestra into a performance that featured hip-hop recording artist, Snoop Dogg on stage as well as a video performance from Bad Boy artist, the late Notorious B.I.G.
His first nomination for an MTV VMA award ended up as his first coveted Moonman as he won “Best R&B Video” in 1997. The next year, Diddy took home the “Viewer’s Choice” award. This year’s VMAs will be the ninth time he is appearing on the televised show.
Several days after the VMAs, Diddy is releasing his latest album, consisting of all R&B music, “The Love Album: Off the Grid” which will be on Sept. 15, 2023. This is his first recorded album since the “Last Train to Paris” was released in 2010.
