Diesel Party

His latest CD, “Paper Trail,” sold more than 560,000 copies in its first week to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts, and his newest single, “Live Your Life” featuring Rihanna, supplanted the album’s first single, “Whatever You Like,” at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

As pointed out in the previous two Diesel party picture posts, after Hot Chip & Chaka Khan came T.I. who made an unbilled, but planned appearance which ended with Franz Ferdinand (who had just played two more Brooklyn shows earlier in the week) playing as his backing band which then went into Franz Ferdinand‘s set – the longest of the night. T.I. and F.F. collectively were the best entertainment of the evening. The circus performers were a nice touch too. That included two sets (female then male) of aerialists who performed above the crowd before TI and after FF. Circus was the theme with Joey Arias also acting as “ringmaster” and free cotton candy, popcorn and hot pretzels. T.I. didn’t bring out Jay-Z like he did at his recent show at Highline Ballroom, but he did have someone else that represented Brooklyn (help?) and…

T.I. also performed a song with the pregnant M.I.A., and called the lyricist “the hottest rap chick in the game right now, period.” T.I. recently sampled “Paper Planes” for a collaboration with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lil Wayne. The song, “Swagga Like Us,” appears on “Paper Trail.” [AP]
