"I'm not sure if it's because we're from the same city or have mutual friends but we just relate and vibe," says the rapper Preme (formerly known as P. Reign) speaking to his relationship with fellow Toronto-reared musician PartyNextDoor. Having previously teamed up for the 2014 mixtape cut "Realest in the City," the two artists have reunited again for Preme's latest cut, the throbbing party banger "Can't Hang," produced by Murda Beatz and Cu Beatz, from his upcoming project.
And as exhibited by the song's music video, which the artist is premiering today, when the two link up things can get decidedly raucous. "Ha! That day was actually crazy," Preme recalls of the Hollywood Hills-set video that finds the rapper, PND, and everyone from Drake to 21 Savage, Metro Boomin', and Raekwon kicking it poolside. Not that it was an easy feat to pull off.
Preme says, "We were actually supposed to shoot the video the next day, so you can imagine the scrambling and running around to get it together, but Drake and Party move around so much that you have to get 'em while you can." Naturally, some females arrived as well. "I wasn't necessarily going for the old school video vixen feel," Preme says, "but you know these videos have a way a taking a life of their own. Sometimes it just works out."
