Diddy, Teyana Taylor Share ‘Closer To God’ Video

"I believe we've created something that will touch people's souls..."

Diddy and Teyana Taylor have shared the incredible video for ‘Closer To God’.

Diddy’s new album ‘THE LOVE ALBUM: OFF THE GRID’ is out now, received rapturously by fans. A broad record constructed alongside a slew of guests, it found a creatively engaged Diddy acting as conductor for the multi-talented cast.

R&B goddess Teyana Taylor appears on album highlight ‘Closer To God’, a gospel-soaked outing that features two scintillating vocals. The recording was a long-time aim for Diddy, who is a huge admirer of the singer’s work.

“Teyana is not just an incredible artist, she’s my sister,” he says in a press note. “She has this undeniable force and raw emotion she brings to every project.”

“When we began conceptualising ‘Closer To God,’ her name was at the forefront of my mind. I had to convince her to come out of retirement, but I knew she would perfectly capture the spiritual essence and depth of the song. Collaborating with her on both the song and its visual was like harmonizing with a kindred spirit. Together, we’ve created something truly special.”

The full video is out now, an incredible visual feast that is every bit as ambitious as the parent album.

“Working on ‘Closer To God’ was a spiritual journey in itself,” says Teyana Taylor. “The song’s message of love and divine connection resonated deeply with me, and visually representing that was a beautiful challenge. I believe we’ve created something that will touch people’s souls.”

“The video captures the profound sentiment of feeling divinely connected when in the presence of true love. It paints a picture of raw emotion, vulnerability, and the magic of finding someone who brings you closer to the divine.”
