PARTYNEXTDOOR 2 [Album Stream]

OVO closes out a big July for them with the release of PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s first solo albumPARTYNEXTDOOR 2. The singer/producer only has one feature: from the main man Drizzy and otherwise does his thing across the 12 tracks. I particularly like how it begins starting off with “East Liberty” and look forward to having this in rotation to see if this Weeknd/Future hybrid comparison I’m hearing is really that close.

ICYMI: Majid Jordan ‘A Place Like This’ [Stream + Review] #OVO



PND is prime for a takeover, continuing a strong month for the OVO Sound crew after Majid Jordan‘s brilliant new EP, A Place Like This (click for my review). His previous single release of “Recognize” f/ Drake picked up a lot of buzz, as you’d imagine, and here’s one of the rest of the solo tracks off the upcoming project, PARTYNEXTDOOR 2, that I’m vibing with. It’s actually the project’s first track “East Liberty”.

The melodies all the way around are what first grabbed me. They’re instantly addicting from the change-ups in the beat and including PND’s delivery. This is also one of PND’s strongest output lyrically as he croons over the end of summer and missing that special someone. All in all, a great way to kick off PARTYNEXTDOOR 2, and I’m especially lookin’ forward to how the rest of the project progresses come July 29th.

PARTYNEXTDOOR f/ Drake “Recognize”

The OVO singer on the rise PARTYNEXTDOOR is dropping his second project, aptly titled, PARTYNEXTDOOR 2, and the lone feature is this one right here, naturally by Drake. “Recognize” picks up as PND kicks it off. By the second verse, he puts a hybrid Drake/Migos flow on his verse as I’m continuing to vibe with the general changes in the flow and delivery. Drake finally drops in at the 4 minute mark with a rap verse that I think I just wish was longer. Any casual Drake fan will likely vibe with this one, so get in tune now as I predict a big 2014 for PND.

Also below, the tracklist to PARTYNEXTDOOR 2, announced today (along with the artwork above) that it drops July 29th.
