Sean “Diddy” Combs drops “Closer to God” music video featuring and directed by Teyana Taylor

*Following the monumental success of his latest R&B masterpiece The Love Album: Off The Grid,” Sean “Diddy” Combs drops the highly anticipated music video for “Closer To God” performed, directed by and featuring Teyana Taylor.

Written by Love Records artist Stacy Barthe and produced by Sean “Diddy” Combs, Austin Brown, Brian London, and Tommy Parker, the song delves into the theme of discovering spiritual enlightenment and a profound connection through a meaningful relationship, highlighting the transformative influence of this love in drawing them closer to God.

Directed by the award-winning and acclaimed Teyana “Spike Tey” Taylor and executive produced by Diddy, this cinematic masterpiece was meticulously crafted against the mesmerizing landscape of Joshua Tree.

“Teyana is not just an incredible artist, she’s my sister,” said Diddy. “She has this undeniable force and raw emotion she brings to every project. When we began conceptualizing ‘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.”

“Working on ‘Closer To God’ was a spiritual journey in itself,” reflected 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.”
