The latest signee to Drake’s October’s Very Own imprint, Ontario singer, Party Next Door released his highly anticipated, self-titled, debut mixtape this week.

Having previously released standout singles, “Make a Mil”, “Wus Good/Curious”, and “Over Here”, fans are finally getting a complete introduction to the singer’s work, in the form of a 10 track self-titled collection of songs.

Party Next Door and Drake

Reportedly turning down a six figure deal with Def Jam to sign with Drake’s label instead, hip hop’s latest threat is a mix of sexy R&B lyrics about chasing women, doing drugs and endless partying, coupled with killer production, and hints of finesse peaking out at opportune moments. I know what you’re thinking, at first listen, you can’t help but make the comparisons to The Weeknd and Miguel, but listen a little closer.

Moving beyond overtly sexual lyrics and doses of hazy, drug rinsed beats, Party Next Door’s sound ranges from ethereal and emotional to catchy hooks and hard hitting beats, often combining all of those elements into one track. At times, Party Next Door sounds a lot like Drake, but where Drake’s singing drops off, The Party Next Door is just getting started. Slurry, auto-tuned drawls layered over husky, soulful words that, much like Drake, blur the lines between rapping and singing. Make way for a new slant on R&B.
