Did you hear – there’s a party next door and everyone is invited!
Mississauga born, hip-hop singer and producer Jahron Brathwaite came out of the shadows and mysteriously crept on the R&B fans. Very early in his musical journey he was noticed by Drake, who signed him to his label OVO Sound. His persona PartyNextDoor finds him shedding the initial self-assured cockiness he exhibited as Jahron Brathwaite and present a more benevolent streak. By dropping his defenses, PartyNextDoor has been able to create genuine, honest music that fits well in today’s rap and R&B landscape.
Finally, after serving as the opening act for his mentor Drake and other hip-hop artists, PartyNextDoor is embarking on his own headlining tour. Titled the Infinity World Tour, it will hit the road in 2018 and PartyNextDoor will perform on select dates in UK and Europe. PartyNextDoor tickets were made available in October 2017 and for some cities like London, sold out soon after their release.
Party Is Only Here For Music
The Drake endorsed singer always had a mysterious vibe surrounding him. After all, he came out of nowhere, got signed by OVO Sound and was soon touring with the likes of Rihanna and the superstar himself, Drake. Since his entry into the music industry, PartyNextDoor has been favoring deep house and downtempo sounds, leaning more towards the electronic genres.
Growing up in Mississauga near Toronto, as a child Brathwaite would follow his mother to choir practices. Deeply inspired by R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly”, he decided to take up songwriting and while in high school produced his own songs. At the age of 18, Brathwaite caught his first break when he landed a songwriting deal with Warner/Chappell.
The acclaimed Toronto based producer Boi-1da got wind of his talent and he introduced Brathwaite to Drake. And that’s when the tide changed and Jahron Brathwaite became PartyNextDoor.
Music Career – Album Releases & Honors
In Drake, PartyNextDoor found a likeminded mentor and friend. OVO Sound label’s only pitch to the musician was, “Release your music when you want, have complete control, and do your own thing”. And PartyNextDoor did just that.
With the guidance and creative freedom that the label offered, Party was able to control his emotions more. His earlier work showed him venting out through songs, taking digs at former girlfriends and more than once, showing off gutter language. He faced a lot of backlash and it even prompted him to keep away from social media. He never gave interviews and avoided limelight.
Under Drake’s influence he was able to evolve both as a writer and musician. Instead of spewing mixtapes and songs at a rapid pace, PartyNextDoor took time in his compositions. In 2014, his debut album hit the shelves, titled “PartyNextDoor Two”.
Cracking through the Billboard 200, it reached number one spot on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. The album featured many big names including Keith Sweat, Sam Smith, Melissa Elliott and Howard Lawrence. Following the success of the album, Party came up with its sequel in 2016 called “PartyNextDoor 3”.
It peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and clinched the first position on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. The songs “Only U” and “Not Nice” are infectious numbers that instantly rose in popularity. The Drake featured track “Come and See Me” landed on the Billboard Hot 100 and even earned PartyNextDoor a Grammy nomination, along with a nod at the Billboard Music Awards.
PartyNextDoor’s third album “Club Atlantis” was announced in the 2017 summer but the singer is yet to reveal more news about it. All he has shared so far is that he’s taking his sweet time on it but in the end, it’ll be worth it.
Party released his EP “Seven Days” in September 2017 and it featured appearances by Rick Ross and Halsey. The “Love Me Again” singer once again managed to break through the Billboard 200 and the album even landed on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop charts.
