PartyNextDoor has claimed the title of "SoundCloud King" during a recent Instagram Live stream. 

The Ontario native recorded himself inside a studio and reflected on who deserved the coveted title. According to Party, people have ruled him out of the conversation, but the only person who should have that role is himself. Party has an extensive history of sharing some of his early songs, such as "Make A Mil" and "Wus Good/Curious," on the streaming platform while also growing his fanbase there.

"Y'all don't even count me, and I hear who they say, 'Who's the SoundCloud king.' It's undeniable," Party said. "Who went from the runner-up who made songs with every single top artist? People can try and beat the record, but there's no one person who went from Kanye [West]Nicki [Minaj]Lil WayneDrake, and everyone who's important from SoundCloud. Like it was supposed to be a joke."

PartyNextDoor has been busy crafting new music, as revealed by himself and Drake during a concert in May. While on stage, the 6 God told the crowd, "I'm going on tour, PARTY dropping PND 4. Yeah, he droppin' PND 4, because they don't write like us anymore."

PND followed that announcement with the release of a new single titled "Resentment" in July. The song was his second release of the year after "Her Old Friends." 

PND 4 will be Party's first studio album since he dropped PARTYMOBILE in March 2020. His last project came in October 2020 when he released an EP titled PARTYPACK, which featured "BUZZIN" and "Persian Rugs".
