Heir to the Bad Boy throne King Combs is steadily proving himself to be a force within the game, teaming up with Chris Brown for his latest single, “Love You Better.”
While the song has been floating around the net for months, the official video made its debut last night (June 18), with clear influence from Notorious B.I.G.’s house party anthem, “One More Chance.” In addition to Combs rocking all white, sitting on Biggie’s signature throne, Breezy played the part of Bad Boy founder Diddy while DJ Khaled took on the late Heavy D’s role.

Combs spoke to Billboard about the collaboration with Brown, saying it came about during a “classic night.”
“It came about real organically. We was at French Montana’s crib in Calabasas. Remy Ma was cooking. It was a classic night. They just got back from winning an award. Maybe it was BET Awards weekend? I don’t remember the exact dates, so I wouldn’t mark that down, but whatever. We was at the crib and we were in the living room. It was me and Chris Brown and he was playing me his Heartbreak on a Full Moon album and I was like, “Wow. This is fire.” Then I played him my mixtape, and he really liked the sound and the whole vibe I was going for.
“He was like, “Yo I gotta hop on this. Let me get on that hook. This is crazy,” Combs continued. “And I’m like, “Yeah. I can use this as my single. Let’s do it.” So then, two days after, he’s a man of his word. We went to the studio and he got in the booth and laid it down real quick. There was a lot of good vibes in the room. It looked like a party in the studio that night. He laid his hook and I was like, “Damn. That’s crazy. He really brings that real R&B feel to the track now.”
