Billboard Canadacover star PartyNextDoor is back, and his new single has quickly hit the Billboard Canadian Hot 100. "Real Woman," debuts this week at No. 98.

The single comes ahead of the Mississauga artist and producer's fourth album, PARTYNEXTDOOR 4, set for release April 26. PartyNextDoor is no stranger to the charts, having penned Rihanna's chart-topper "Work" as well as DJ Khaled's No. 2 hit "Wild Thoughts." He's had success as a performer on the Hot 100 with tracks like the Grammy-nominated "Come and See Me," but his solo material, released through OVO Sound, hasn't reliably broken through in the same way as his work for Drake and others.

With "Real Woman" cracking the Canadian Hot 100 this week, now's the time to build momentum towards his upcoming album release.

In his Billboard interview, the reclusive artist opened up about his career arc, working with Rihanna and Ye, and re-focusing on his artistry following his last LPs. "I know Drake and people always tell me, ‘Bro, you have to come out more!’ I’m an introvert, I’m shy,” he said. “I’m focused on making classic music.”

"Real Woman" is a sultry entry into Party's catalogue, featuring moody production and ghostly backing vocals, textures that swirl around Party as he sings about intense infatuation. "Life is good / the worst is over now / love ain't never made more sense than right now," he attests, over a heavy kick drum and crisp hi hats.

Elsewhere on the chart, Benson Boone holds onto the top spot with "Beautiful Things," followed by Teddy Swims' "Lose Control" at No. 2. (The U.S. Hot 100 has those songs in the reverse order.)

In terms of Canadian entries, Drake's remix of 4Batz' "Act II: Date @ 8" falls ten spots to No. 24 and LU KALA's "Hotter Now" moves up eight places to No. 40 following her Juno Opening Night Awards performance this weekend. Preston Pablo's "Dance Alone" climbs nine spots to No. 67, Owen Riegling moves up six spots to No. 69 with "Old Dirt Roads," Josh Ross' "Aint Doin Jack" falls one spot to No. 78, and Alexander Stewart's "I Wish You Cheated" is up two spots to No. 85.

The L.A. rockers have seemingly picked a side in the rap beef, poking fun at Drake by posting a spicy photoshop of Lamar alongside Canadian icons like Neil Young and Jim Carrey.

California, show your teeth: L.A.'s Red Hot Chili Peppers have shared a biting Instagram post about the Drake/Kendrick beef.

The '90s rockers played two shows in Toronto this past week, and following their second show on July 17, they posted a carousel with images of famous Canadians edited onto their setlist — except for one outlier.
