The OVO artists have more unreleased heat in the stash.

The Drake & PartyNextDoor combination has been missing from our playlists for a minute. However, with the release of “Her Old Friends” and PND’s appearance on Diddy’s “Sex In A Porsche,” we imagine that they might have new heat in the stash on the Mississauga-based artist’s next project, whenever that drops. Fortunately for fans, every so often, something out of the stash leaks online and makes waves. This week, it’s a record titled, “Bricks” that fans suspect was recorded roughly six years ago.

Fans were ecstatic to hear the collaboration between the two Canadian artists but they did point out that it sounds like it was recorded during the More Life era. “Bricks” contains a similar sample to Drake’s “Passionfruit,” which appeared on his 2017 project. On top of that, Drake uses a similar line on “Bricks” that he used on WizKid’s “Come Closer.” Regardless, it’s an exciting record that we hope will see and official release and add to their collaborative streak alongside songs like "Loyal," "With You," and "Recognize."

The OVO team has been on the move this year, although fans remain on the edge in hopes that a new album from PartyNextDoor will come before the summer. The Canadian R&B songwriter released his last album, PARTYMOBILE in 2020 before sharing PARTYPACK later that year. However, with his recent single earlier this year, we anticipate that he could be coming through with some heat later this year. We could only hope that it’s here in time for summer 2023. 

As for Drake, the Canadian singer is fresh off of the release of Her Loss with 21 Savage. The two rappers are now gearing up for their official tour, It’s All A Blur, which launches later this summer. Hopefully, Drake also has some new music in the stash this year. He debuted “Search & Rescue” last month before unveiling the highly-anticipated Lil Uzi Vert-assisted, “At The Gates.” Unfortunately, we can’t share the “Bricks” leak here but you could find it online fairly easily. Are you hoping to hear new music from Drake & PartyNextDoor soon? Let us know in the comment section below.
