PARTYNEXTDOOR and Jeremih are currently on the road for their “Summer’s Over” tour. Tomorrow, November 16, they are headed to Washington, D.C. and will perform at The Fillmore. But today, while in Charlotte, North Carolina, PARTYNEXTDOOR took the time to sit down and talk about working with other artists and writing for himself. During the interview, he “warned” his fans that they should expect a lot of emotions from his performances.
PARTYNEXTDOOR revealed that working with Drake and Rihanna was very inspiring. The artist said that before writing for Rihanna, he interviewed her, so he could understand better where they were headed with the songs. Rihanna has been welcoming and they worked together on “Work” and “S*x With Me.”
PDT admitted that writing for himself is a harder challenge… “I’d say it’s easier to write for other people than to write for myself. I can go into imagination with other people. For myself, it’s more of like, I’ve got admit it and I gotta tell the truth and nothing but the truth because I can’t hide that. It’s easier to write for other people. I prefer writing for myself because I like the challenge.”
The artist is grateful to be part of the OVO family and considers that Drake keeps him motivated. He believes that OVO protects him from the music industry, by not getting him involved in its chaos, unless he asks so.
“Summer’s Over” will end on December 11 in San Francisco, at The Masonic. Buy your tickets here. Make sure to listen to the #LiftOff everyday from 7p-12a & Follow @J_Credible x @DjSourmilk on Twitter!
