Drake’s OVO label has some underrated artists on it. Roy Woods is one of them for sure. The Brampton, Canada native was buzzing during 2015 with the release of his debut EP, Exis. That is the project that featured Drizzy on “Drama,” which is sitting on a high streaming number.
In fact, it has over 455 million streams. It also featured solid deep cuts as well, such as “Get You Good.” Roy kept up the pace in 2016 and 2017 with three more projects. Those being Nocturnal, Waking at Dawn, and Say Less. However, it would be six years until the rapper and singer’s next full-length tape. When smaller artists take a long break from dropping albums, fans usually tap out.
But, it seems with Roy that the fans were willing to wait. The streaming numbers are there. Even though the project dropped in July, the same day as UTOPIA, Roy’s loyal listeners still checked it out. Now, he is continuing to feed them with a new aggressive single, “4am.” He is as mean as ever with some truly braggadocious and threatening bars.
