PARTYNEXTDOOR: Is He Drake’s New Artist?

Drake has proven to have an ear for talent. Just ask The Weeknd, who Drake introduced to the world and quickly became a star in his own right. Recently, Drizzy tweeted about PartyNextDoor and his song “A Mil,” leading everyone to believe that this was the rapper’s latest signee. VIBE scoured the Internets to find out what we could about the mysterious PartyNextDoor.—Sowmya Krishnamurthy
