PARTYNEXTDOOR & TM88's "Party At 8" Project Isn't Coming Out

Top Tracks: November 30 - December 6
We got a wealth of new music last Friday, and, indeed, Rick Ross, Kid Cudi, and Jeremih all added tracks off their new albums to this week's Top 10. Lyrically-minded fans are still reeling from the week before, though, when Kendrick and Cole exchanged remixes. Both "Black Friday" tracks comfortably stuck around for this week's Top 10.
Staff Picks Playlist (November 20)
Today has been very heavy on the album release side, as you've probably noticed by the almost insurmountable number of streams we've posted thus far (and there are more to come). In between this week's long list of new releases, as well as last week's, your iTunes should be busy for a while. That's not even mentioning the mixtapes that'll drop on Thanksgiving Day next week-- Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent.

It's that time of the week again. The weather might be crap, but work's over, school's out, and that should be enough to get your mind in the right place. If not, then we've got your musical medication, which will, no doubt, pair nicely with whatever other treats, medical-grade or otherwise, you've got on deck.

It was gonna be tough to top last week's episode of OVO Sound Radio, when Drake premiered his joint album with Future, What a Time to Be Alive, but tonight's episode certainly gave episode 6 a run for its money.

10 Essential PARTYNEXTDOOR Tracks
Canadians are everywhere nowadays. It's safe to say that Drake has opened up the door for many Canucks to be heard, especially within the R&B/hip hop crossover style.

Top Tracks: July 27 - August 2
At HNHH, you get used to anything Drake does dominating the charts. Even taking that into consideration, this week is ridiculous and unprecedented. Drake accounts for 7 of the top 10 spots, was the genesis of another song.

Abandon all hope Drizzy haters who enter here. Let’s get to it.
Staff Picks Playlist (July 31)
This week's edition of Staff Picks seems to be (accidentally) OVO themed, like a light/curated version of OVO Radio. Drizzy dominated this week, dropping two diss records (back to back), to be followed up by Meek's own attempt at a diss track last night.
PartyNextDoor's 5 Best Non-Album Tracks
This morning, OVO's PartyNextDoor came out of nowhere with a new track called "Kehlani's Freestyle." Although unexpected, the move isn't out of the ordinary for PND, who has somewhat of a habit of sharing one-off tracks on a whim. The 23 year old singer already has two great self-titled albums to his name, both made up of hypnotic, sexually-minded bangers, but especially after the release of PN2 last year, many complained that he leaves some of his best work off of albums.

It's Hump Day on these internets, and while the term actually refers to the fact that once you're over the hump that is Wednesday your week is (basically) over, we're taking it literally.

PARTYNEXTDOOR Covers The Fader
Part of the appeal of OVO's PARTYNEXTDOOR is his mysterious online presence. He rarely tweets, rarely guests on non-OVO artists' music, and until now, has not sat down for official interviews with publications. Today, he shows up on the cover of The Fader, giving an interview while on tour.
