It has been a big year for Roy Woods. Woods is the latest Canadian artist looking to break through to the states. The sultry signee to OVO Music dropped a surprise EP Nocturnal for the holidays. The EP shows that Woods artistry has potential to make it big. Woods produced seven tracks in the EP which also features a couple of notable guest appearances from OVO colleagues; Majid Jordan on a track called “Chilli Peppers” and MadeinTYO on “Instinct” and the Ty Dolla $ign jam “Only You” which does not appear on Nocturnal. There are plenty of other gems to be found on the EP.
The EP starts off with the track “Magic”, a laid-back tempo with brassy bass synths. He talks about his work progress through his lyrics:
“You can get mad that I made it/ You ain’t know the work I put in
Check my profile and they hit me / I been doing me on the daily…/ I be makin’ magic on the daily…”
Moving through the tracks we find Majid Jordan make a brief appearance with their vocals in the song “Chilli Pepper”. The infectious hook – “She’s hot as red hot chili peppers, hot, hot, hot / Going on a Californication…” – leaves us craving for more Woods sultry and catchy artistry.
