Here are 5 things we wish for on PartyNextDoor's upcoming album, "P3."
It's been a fast year for OVO so far, beginning with Drake's "Summer Sixteen." All eyes were directed toward Views from the 6, which is, finally, set to arrive next month. There hasn't been another taste of Views since, though OVO has kept its name out there with the release of the self-titled debut album from Majid Jordan as well as the signing of the anonymous R&B act dvsn. PartyNextDoor has been signed to OVO for almost three years now, and for much of that time, he's been the Toronto label's second-in-command, albeit a very distant second. It's now been almost a year and a half since Party's last project, the 4-track PNDColours EP, and after a quiet 2015, his buzz began to simmer -- still one of OVO's biggest talents, but a star-in-the-making?
That has been the question, and the answer points more toward the affirmative upon the release of "Come and See Me," the single released earlier this week with which Party announced his next album: P3. The track features Drake and is produced by 40, but from Party's short opening verse to the earworm hook that ensues, it's clear "Come and See Me" is one of the most compelling pieces of work to date put out by the Sauga City killer. And it's one that fits perfectly in line with the OVO brand. For me, the song is an indicator that Party is ready to drop an album that can stand up within the OVO canon next to classics like Take Care and Nothing Was the Same. Here are five things PND can do to make that happen, and make P3 the best album of his career.
