As promised, PARTYNEXTDOOR has delivered unto his highly-anticipated third album. Creatively titled P3, the singer/rapper dropped the record early this morning across all streaming services. And suffice to say, it is ambitious.
P3 comes in at a sprawling 16 tracks, nearly all of which is exclusively PARTYNEXTDOOR’s soulful yearning. In fact, the only feature on the track comes from his OVO Sound label boss Drake on the previously released jam “Come and See Me.” He also managed production on most of the tracks himself, with some additional work from heavy-hitters like Boi-1da and the ubiquitous Noah “40” Shebib. In a somewhat curious move, PARTYNEXTDOOR chose not to include several singles he has released throughout the summer on the album. Which means tracks like his official version of “Like Dat” featuring Lil Wayne and Jeremih and his tropically flavored “Don’t Do It For You No More” are nowhere to be found. Nor does it have either of the tracks the singer released with Lil Yachty and Quavo, the melodically delicious “Buzzin” and “Cuffed Up.”
Even with the omission of those singles, P3 is an impressive feat, and not just for its 65 minute runtime. We are now being given the most comprehensive glimpse of PARTYNEXTDOOR yet, a far cry from his brief feature on Drake tracks like “Preach.”
