Michael and Quincy, Sonny And Cher, Ike and Tina, Justin and Timbaland, Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince. The music industry has had innumerable producer/artist duos that have cranked out hit after hits for the past 50+ years.

Come and See Me

After performing a surprise-filled set at SXSW on Saturday (March 19), this newest collaboration, “Come and See Me,” is the newest single off PND’s upcoming album P3. Featuring trademark production from 40, “Come and See Me” capitalizes on OVO’s trademark “underwater sound,” with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Drake harmonizing on the soft piano notes and melancholy 808s.
Drizzy’s verse comes full of admissions about the turns of a relationships: “Lately you keep questions what you get out of the deal…doing things to make me feel the way I make you feel.” Partynextdoor, while known for making “come down friendly” trap&B, on “Come and See Me,” he does without the auto-tune, favoring a more traditional R&B sound, with lyrics like: “I’ll admit I’m sorry when I’m truly sorry”.
Both artists blend together singing and rapping, conveying the feelings that come with watching a longtime lover slip away. Many have already speculated that the track is a response to Kehlani‘s “Tore Up” and a sequel to PARTY’s “Kehlani’s Freestyle,” since both tracks cemented the dating rumors that sparked early in 2015.
The mellow joint is the first offering of PND’s P3 project, a follow-up to his 2014 PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO, which featured another collaboration from Drake, “Recognize.” Check out PND’s newest cut, “Come and See Me,” featuring Drake and produced by 40.
