Drake said it's going to be "one of those summers" after confirming "PND 4."

It’s been a few summers without new music from PartyNextDoor but rest assured, his new album is on the way. The Canadian R&B star returned to History Nightclub in Toronto for his homecoming show, which led to a Drake cameo. The OVO Boss sang PND’s praises during a brief freestyle while he was on stage. “I’m going on tour but Party droppin’ PND 4,” he sang to the audience to applause. Between speculation of Scary Hours 3 and a new PND project, it sounds like the OVO clique will hold us down for the summer.

PartyNextDoor has been ramping up the anticipation for his forthcoming album for a few months now. In late 2022, he popped up with the release of OG Parker for “No Fuss.” Then, he joined forces with Diddy for “Sex In A Porsche,” leading to the release of his first solo single since 2020, “Old Friends.” Fans have been demanding the album’s release, which Party further hinted at on Instagram ahead of his homecoming concert last night. Hopefully, we won't have to wait much longer for PND4.

Drake Confirms “PND 4” 

As they performed together for the first time in ages, Drake ensured that he gave PartyNextDoor his flowers on stage in front of their hometown. “First of all, can I just say on behalf of everybody in this room, can you come home more, please? Please!” Drake began. “I would not be the artist I am if it wasn’t for you. And that’s not like even some like I get on stage with people and I’m nice sometimes but this is really actually, like, my favorite artist in the world and I love this guy.”

Hopefully, we’ll be getting a new collaboration from the two of them this summer. On stage, Drake proclaimed that he already heard PND 4 in its entirety, adding that it was going to be “one of those summers.” PND released his last project, PartyMobile in 2020, featuring singles like “Loyal” ft. Drake and “Believe It” ft. Rihanna. We’ll keep you posted on any further updates surrounding PartyNextDoor’s upcoming album. Check out Drake’s cameo at PartyNextDoor’s concert above.
