Inspired by the 1990 film House Party, starring Kid N Play, the urban pop artist Class Vee paid homage to it in her infectiously galvanising hit of the same title.
The aesthetics in the official video and the old-school grooves will throw you right back to the 90s while you remain firmly in 2023 through the modernist production and Class Vee’s vocal lines, which go beyond contemporary stylings to create a brand-new trajectory to the evolution of pop hip hop.
House parties won’t solve all your problems, but House Party on your playlists will give you all the serotonin you need to get through the summer. There’s no understating the euphoric energy that Class Vee brings to the airwaves with her pitch-perfected harmonies; she’s more than an icon in the making; she’s already arrived.
The official music video for House Party premiered on May 6; catch it on YouTube.
