Rising R&B crooner PARTYNEXTDOOR hasn’t even put out an album but he’s already gotten cosigns from Drake and Kylie Jenner, both of whom appear in his new video.

While the visual clip for “Recognize” — a taste of his recent studio debut, PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO — has those celebrity cameos, to its credit, it doesn’t play them up.

Instead we get a grainy, home-recorded video à la Lana Del Rey that flickers between dark shots of the lead singer in an arcade, behind shutters in a house, Rodeo Drive at nighttime, a game of hoops, and a yacht.

Drake only appears to spit his verse toward the end in the smoky arcade and behind him, a blink-and-you-might-miss-it Kylie Jenner nonchalantly bops along to the music.

Even though this is the first time Kylie Jenner and Drake naturally appear in a sentence together, it’s not surprising that the youngest Kardashian is venturing into hip-hop. After all her brother-in-law is Kanye West, and, just yesterday, her sister Khloe appeared in boyfriend French Montana‘s new video for “Don’t Panic.”

PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO is out now on Drake’s label OVO.
