Ease into your week with these three brand new songs from PARTYNEXTDOOR featuring Rihanna, Joyner Lucas, and Mick Jenkins and Kaytranada.


As collaborators, PND and Rihanna are seasoned magic-makers. Responsible for timeless, club-friendly jams like "Work" and DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts," "Believe It" represents the first time they've been on the same song as artists, rather than a songwriter-singer duo.

With "Believe It," the two blend their voices and create a rhythmic sound that's nothing short of irresistible. It's the last single off Party's long-awaited PARTYMOBILE released last Friday, but it's the first song you'll want to play.

Destined for radio before it even hit streaming services, Party's sweet voice and innocent inquiries will make you miss catching up with your friends at the pregame. "If I propose, would you say no? / Would you break my heart? / Would you embarrass me or play your part?" he sings.

Joyner Lucas – "Will"

Everyone loves Will Smith, but Joyner Lucas reveres him so much that he decided to create an entire song and video centered around the 51-year-old’s acting catalog. Though "Will" started going viral late last week, Daquan can't get enough of Lucas' infectious flow and witty punchlines, not to mention the enchanting trap beat that brings it all together.

Tracing Smith's roles in classic films like Bad Boys, Men In Black, I, Robot, The Pursuit of Happyness and I Am Legend, Lucas doesn’t miss a beat. "ADHD, I'm a bad boy / I think I might just pull up in the 'Rari, ooh / I might just skrrt up to Philly / They call me Big Willie, I think I'm Mike Lowrey, ooh," he raps.

Mick Jenkins & Kaytranada – "Frontstreet"

After connecting on "Gray Area," a standout track off Kaytranada's BUBBA, Mick Jenkins and the Montreal producer are back again with the spirited "Fronstreet." Jenkins, who's originally from Chicago, first caught wind of the Montreal music scene after spending time there during the recording process for his breakout mixtape The Water[s].

He seems to have found a nice pocket with Kaytranada as the two continue to ride the wave of bright chords and eclectic drums. Unlike "Gray Area," though, Jenkins squares his shoulders and pounds his chest this time around. "Gotta say it to my face when you come in mines / Gotta put it in the air if you blowin' smoke / Better win a Golden Globe if you runnin' lines," he raps.
