While it’s difficult to place Brathwaite into a single genre, his style can best be described as alternative R&B. He has joined the likes of artists such as The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and Jhené Aiko as a member of the unofficial PBR&B culture, better known as hipster R&B.
Following his debut release, Brathwaite joined his mentor Drake, rapper Future and singer Miguel on their “Would You Like a Tour?” concert series in 2013. His debut album PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO was released on July 29, 2014 by OVO Sound and Warner Bros. Records and features the single “Recognize” featuring Drake. The album debuted at number five on Billboard 200.
The newcomer plans to keep busy during the fall as he headlines his first tour. The 14-date tour will begin on October 19 in Montreal and end on November 22 in Los Angeles.
With acclaimed rapper Drake in his corner, there’s no doubt this star in the making will be a household name in no time. If you want to know more about the singer, check out his debut album PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO, which is available now.
