R&B singer PartyNextDoor gained a bunch of weight. MTO News caught up with him at the airport, and he was trying to avoid the cameras.
PartyNextDoor gained national fame a couple of years ago – when he released a bunch of hit records. Before his singing career popped, he was known as on of the top songwriters/producers in the business.
In the last year or so, PartyNextDoor has gone back to writing and producing for other artists. He recently wrote and produced a number of hit songs for Post Malone and Justin Bieber.
But all that time sitting and eating in the studio appears to have caught up with him. Look at him now.
PartyNextDoor was the first artist signed to Drake’s OVO Sound record label in 2013 and later that year released his first EP self-titled PartyNextDoor. He subsequently released PartyNextDoor Two and PNDColours in 2014 and PartyNextDoor 3 in 2016. PartyNextDoor has collaborated with a number of artists, including Drake, Big Sean and Jeremih. PartyNextDoor has also seen success as a songwriter, having penned “Work”, which was released on Rihanna’s album Anti, and peaked at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100.
He began making electronic-infused R&B under his real name Jahron Brathwaite (Jahron B). He received his first promotion push by a popular music promotion website “Kanye Live” which later became “KanyeToThe.com” which was run by two college kids (known only as Gregory (AKA Alleztulle) and Andy) between 2007 and 2010. Through this he quickly gained popularity, and eventually co-hosted the websites “Welcome To The Future” mixtape series. He got his better known stage name from an FL Studio audio filter setting called “PartyNextDoor”.
