Not Nice

Album: P3 (2016)
Charted: 82

Songfacts®:

  • Over dancehall-inspired production from Supa Dups and Nineteen85, Party sings here about a girl whose character does not match up to her outer beauty.

    Girl you're not nice, you're rude
    Want me to feel like I'm new
    Want me to watch you do you
    Don't, girl, you look so nice


    The girl is gorgeous but aloof. She knows she's got Party enticed, but remains remote to him.
  • The interlude is a vocal sample from an unreleased song recorded by the head of Mixpak Records and producer Dre Skull with Jamaican reggae dancehall vocalist Vybz Kartel. The track was also likely influenced by another of Vybz's songs, "Girl You Too Bad."
  • The video was directed by frequent PartyNextDoor collaborator Adrian Martinez. Previous collaborations between the pair include the clip for "Come and See Me."
