It’s no secret that PARTYNEXTDOOR had considerable writing credit on DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller’s smash hit ‘Wild Thoughts‘.
On Wednesday, PND was a part of Spotify’s inaugural Secret Genius Awards in L.A where he took home the first ever R&B Genius award for his songwriting contributions to the track in addition to Rihanna’s hit songs ‘Work’ and ‘Sex With Me’. During the event, he also took the stage to perform his rendition of ‘Wild Thoughts’, perhaps for the first time, for the audience present with help from a live band. Watch it below.
The event honored some of music’s biggest songwriters and producers behind the Spotify’s most-played songs. Rick Rubin was presented with the “legendary secret genius award” while Pop & Oak accepted their “secret genius: social message award” for Alessia Cara’s ‘Scars to Your Beautiful’, among other winners.
