His 2016 mixtape PARTYNEXTDOOR 3 hit number 1 in the iTunes charts and sold over 50,000 copies. In the year following P3, Party had some of the most prolific moments of his career. He sang “Since Way Back” on Drake’s More Life, before dropping his own widely acclaimed COLOURS 2 EP. He appeared three times on DJ Khaled’s album Grateful with writing credits on platinum hits “Shining” featuring Beyonce and Jay Z as well as “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, plus his own vocal performance on “Down For Life” with FutureTravis ScottRick Ross and Kodak Black.

He dropped a handful of bonus tracks on his website including “Cartier” with Jadakiss, and then announced his project Seven Days during an interview with Zane Lowe, where he premiered “Damage” featuring Halsey. The following day he released the project, a collection of seven songs written over the course of seven days including a collaboration with Party’s long-time inspiration, Rick Ross.

Rat Boy

+ Badsounds + Ten Tonnes

Friday 9th February

Academy

Even ahead of the release of his debut album, RAT BOY has proved impossible to pigeonhole – his charismatic and often narrative lyrics being the constant in a sound that encompasses hip-hop, indie, punk, big beat, and electro-pop. Always eager to discover disparate new influences, his previous EP ‘Get Over It’ was further inspired by lost cuts from the worlds of USSR funk and retro Japanese folk.

In addition to his music, RAT BOY’s skills extend into other disciplines including artwork, video production, prop design and fashion. His clothing line SCUM mixes 70s gangster chic with in vogue skatewear, and his creations have been snapped up by fans who have stayed behind after gigs to buy his limited edition designs.

RAT BOY has just been nominated for Best Music Video for ‘Get Over It’ at the NME Awards. Co-directed with his friend Tommy D, the DIY video also features a car built by RAT BOY’s dad.
