Details: Just in time for the holidays, finally! It’s been years (I’m being dramatic) for this video to be released, and it’s here. Now as “Party” seems to be a fan favorite, I’m sure you all can relate to the videos treatment; house party. Oh stop being bougee, I think trailer parks are the new gated homes.
