If after pressing play on PARTYNEXTDOOR's latest single, "Her Way," you think his sound bears more than a passing resemblance to Drake's, then you'd totally be on to something. That's because, besides hailing from Canada like the Young Money actor-turned-rapper-turned-sometimes crooner, PARTYNEXTDOOR is also one of the artist's signed to Drake's OVO Records. Since inking the deal nearly a year ago, PARTYNEXTDOOR has gone on to release a self-titled mixtape, lend his vocals to several of his labelhead's songs and hit the road alongside Drake himself, Future and Miguel.
On "Her Way," he keeps the virtual party going as he croons about the "bad b---h" who has caught his eye. I'll be honest, though, y'all. This song isn't necessarily my cup of tea. Besides the fact that he repeatedly refers to this woman as the b-word, his voice is Auto-Tuned to the heavens and back. I suppose in some alternate universe being called a "b---h" over and over again could be perceived as a compliment. Luckily for me, I don't live in that universe. If you have a thick skin and often find yourself grooving to the sounds of the likes of Future and the other indistinguishable, Auto-Tune-dependent artists popular these days, then PARTYNEXTDOOR's "Her Way" would be right up your alley. However, for this decidedly un-bad bish, this song is nothing to write home about.
