5 Things to Know About Kylie Jenner's New Friend PartyNextDoor
So who’s the youngest KarJenner’s newest companion? Here are 5 things to know about the 22-year-old hitmaker.
1. His real name is Jahron Anthony Brathwaite
No, PartyNextDoor is not his real name. The Canadian hip-hop artist was born Jahron Anthony Brathwaite. And in case you were wondering, the inspiration behind his pseudonym comes from a production filter called “PartyNextDoor” in the digital audio editing program FruityLoops.
2. He’s Drake‘s go-to lyricist
Not only is he signed with his fellow Canuck’s label OVO Sound, PND is the mastermind behind some of Drake’s biggest hits on his albums Nothing Was the Same and If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late. In addition, PND co-wrote Rihanna‘s hit “Work.”
3. He featured Kylie in one of his music videos
Kylie has a very brief cameo with sister Kendall Jenner in PND’s music video for his single “Recognize,” which features Drake.
4. He has a famous ex as well
In March, PND created quite a stir when he shared a photo of his ex, singer Kehlani in bed with him on social media. The now-deleted post followed up speculation she cheated on boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Kyrie Irving, 24. PND’s photo was captioned, “After all her shenanigans, still got the R&B singer back in my bed.”
5. He’s caught Tyga’s eye
PND took to Instagram recently to flaunt his diamond accessories and was joined by Kylie. “Diamond battles with @kyliejenner,” he wrote showing off his dazzling Rolex watch.
One day later, Jenner’s ex upped the ante by boasting about his diamond watch, bracelets and rings on a single wrist for a post also labeled “Diamond battles.”
