(AllHipHop News) Toronto crooner Party Next Door has been on a meteoric rise to fame lately, with hit tracks such as “Come and See Me,” featuring OVO label mate and founder Drake from his new album PartyNextDoor 3.
Party also currently boasts heavyweight writing credits for Rihanna’s hit track “Work” and more.
According to the New York Times, the rising soul star’s relationship with Rihanna started at a writing camp at the songstress’s Malibu home last year.
This would be leasier to PND receiving writing credits on Rihanna’s infectious chart topping hit “Work,” a song which her label wasn’t too fond of initially.
“Her label didn’t care for Caribbean music at the time,” PartyNextDoor explained.
He and Drake considered keeping the track, or giving it to Alicia Keys, but Rihanna’s team came around “when it was all that she could sing around the house.”
“She fought for it. She said, ‘This is my family’s favorite song.’”
The artist has also done plenty of work on Drake’s Views, which ran the top of the Billboard charts for 12 weeks.
Despite all of the ghostwriting controversy and conflict currently surrounding Drake, the rising star claims that their relationship is mutually beneficial.
“It’s just creatives cooking,” PND said. “If he sees something in a song of mine that he feels he can spin around and make better, who am I to say I’m going to selfishly keep it? As a fan of music, that’s wrong.”
