My ear caught wind of a familiar yet new sound booming from the speakers at a party last night. It kind of sounded like a Drake or Weeknd on the vocals but there was something a little different about the voice that I couldn’t put my finger on. So I did what I always do and confiscated the ipod it was coming from for further investigation. The artist is a recent Drake/October’s Very Own signee by the name of Party Next Door. Apparently he just dropped a mixtape last month called Welcome to The Party, and it’s not half bad. It’s everything you expect from an artist coming out of Drakes camp- the whiny autotuney R&B sound that you want to hate but for some reason can’t bring yourself to do.
Stream and download Welcome to The Party below and also be on the look out for Party Next Door appearance on Drakes upcoming album Nothing Was The Same.
