Reviewing PARTYNEXTDOOR'S P3 Album
The multitalented PARTYNEXTDOOR dropped his latest album on August 12th and expectations could not have been higher. PND, who is a native of Missassauga, Ontaria is known for his R&B style, and is seen on a bunch of Drake tracks. Although he has had some monster collabs PND's projects have gotten mixed reviews.
Personally, I think P3 is his best work yet, but still doesn't blow me away. He has a dark style of R&B in this album and pretty much sticks to that theme throughout. If you're looking to party you should not listen to this album. The vibes in this project are slow and are perfect for late night "activities" with your boys. PND even incorporates the electric guitar mixed with a trap beat in a couple songs and it fits very well.
On the other hand, PND still tends to struggle on the lyrical part of things. At times, he is hard to understand and it seems like he repeats a lot of the same lyrics in a few songs. If PND, could fix things lyrically, he could blow up. It feels like PND has been around for a while and people are just waiting for him to blow up, but it hasn't happened yet.
Another thing he lacked was features. One feature which of course was Drake in the song Come And See Me, which is a fantastic song. PND should have definitely included other artists on this album. It's difficult to listen to the same artist for 16 straight tracks without getting uninterested. PND doesn't posses the skills to do an entire album just by himself. We're not talking about Kanye who absolutely murdered it with no features in his College Dropout album.
Overall I think the album is very solid but this still isn't his break out. He didn't kill it which is what I was hoping for.
