|ABOUT TRIPPIE REDD:
One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, platinum-selling rapper/singer/songwriter Trippie Redd has landed four albums in the top 10 in just three years’ time. With the November 2019 release of A Love Letter To You 4—his first-ever album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart—Trippie offered up his most dynamic body of work to date, delivering a 21-track effort that amassed over 125.9 million streams in its first week alone. With his penetrating lyrics and nuanced but hard-hitting vocal performance, the 20-year-old Ohio native continually defies genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal to ultimately create a sound that’s wildly experimental yet massively appealing.
As he recalls, the urge to create his own music arose soon after his older brother (an aspiring rapper who went by the name Dirty Redd) died in a car accident when Trippie was 10. (“I took his dream and did it myself,” Trippie says now.) Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects in 2017.
Hailing from Mississauga, Canada, PARTYNEXTDOOR is one of this generation’s most important pop and R&B singers, songwriters and producers who has just released his new album PARTYMOBILE on OVO Sound. His Jamaican roots inform much of his music and his influence can be heard across contemporary R&B, rap and pop genres today. In 2013, PARTYNEXTDOOR was the first artist signed to OVO Sound and released his seminal debut PARTYNEXTDOOR. 2014 saw the release of his second project PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO, which he followed with the PNDColours EP the same year. PND followed P2 with the PARTYNEXTDOOR 3 LP in 2016 to widespread critical acclaim. In 2017, PND released his Seven Days EP, the same year he earned a “Best R&B Song” GRAMMY Award nomination for the triple-platinum certified “Come and See Me” with Drake. Also known for his prolific output and songcraft, PND wrote Rihanna’s 2016 smash “Work,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as DJ Khaled’s 2017 hit “Wild Thoughts,” featuring Rihanna, which peaked #2 on the Hot 100.
