The project marks the official debut release for Puff's new label, Love Records.

He created an unforgettable empire with Bad Boy, and Sean "Diddy" Combs is looking to recreate that success with Love Records. In May 2022, Diddy announced that he was officially launching his new R&B-centered record label. Later, he returned to share that his first signee was Jozzy. Now, after nearly a year of plotting and planning, Diddy says he is ready to release his first EP through the collective.

According to reports, Jozzy's EP—For Women, Free Game For N*ggas—will arrive this Friday (February 24). "It’s finally here," Jozzy wrote on Instagram. "This EP is the beginning of every dream reignited. Thank you for waiting & believing. 'Songs For Women, Free Game For N*ggas' Friday 2/24 🌹 @loverecords."

Jozzy is a very special and dynamic talent that only comes around once in a generation, so I’m excited to see how her music sets a new standard for R&B,” Diddy said in a statement about the release. “Her skills as a writer and performer, matched with her style and energy, [have] the potential to make her one of the greats, and I’m proud to play a part in shaping the next chapter of her career.”

When Puff first announced Love Records' arrival in partnership with Motown, he spoke about his vision. “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 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.”

Diddy Lit Up the Internet When He Said "R&B is Dead"

Last year, a simple post stating that "R&B is dead" sparked a wave of controversy. Later, Diddy explained his hot take. To him, the influence that R&B once had on the industry has fallen, but he seemingly backtracked and didn't mean to insult any creative. Diddy also shared that this time around, he's looking to have equal partnerships with artists, not simply sign them to record deals. Are you looking forward to Jozzy's EP?
