Singer-songwriter PARTYNEXTDOOR has been MIA for almost two years now. The release of his studio-album PartyNextDoor 3 dates back to 2016, while his most recent project and EP Seven Days shortly followed the consecutive year. Though the Canadian artist continued to wow lyrically and sonically through his production and writing contributions to many of your favorite artists’ albums (Rihanna’s “Work” and “Sex With Me”), it seems he’s neglected to do the same for himself.
Following a well-timed rant by Hip Hop connoisseur DJ Akademiks where he condemned the current state of R&B as “wack”, the call-out garnered more information on the “Run Up” singer’s whereabouts. In the aforementioned tweet, Akademiks states “Man where PartyNextDoor been at?? So many wack niggas making wack music… and this nigga Party is MIA …whichever of u industry Niggas got him in a dungeon writing your next single … let him drop something real quick.” Shortly afterwards, PND’s producer Neenyo, known for having worked on tracks for Drake, Future and 6lack chimed in with the answer we needed. “It’s coming” was the reply with a finger-crossed emoji.
