Your Weekend Playlist, Courtesy of Roy Wood$
Last February, PAPER Magazine deemed OVO Sound artist Roy Wood$, “Canada’s R&B heartthrob”—and we would definitely have to second that. The Brampton-bred singer and rapper doesn’t shy away from sharing personal life hurdles when it comes to his lyrics that cover everything from heartbreak to dealing with substance abuse. His velvety, slow-wining music features some of Toronto’s biggest talents, such as dvsn, PARTYNEXTDOOR, duo Majid Jordan, and, of course, The Six’s finest—Drake. After the release of his debut album Say Less, which he toured with earlier this year, 21-year-old Wood$ is back in the studio with momentum for future projects that are in the works (and coming soon, don’t worry). While you wait, enjoy some of Wood$’ fave tracks curated below. Welcome to the weekend.
