"Getting' Old" will be hitting stores on March 24th. Combs had this to say, "This album is about the stage of life I'm in right now. One that I'm sure a lot of us are in, have been through, or will go through.

"It's about coming of age, loving where life is now but at the same time missing how it used to be, continuing to fall for the one you love and loving them no matter what, living in the moment but still wondering how much time you have left, family, friends, being thankful, and leaving a legacy.
