7 Songs, 21 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Building on the momentum of his Waking At Night EP, Toronto-based Drake signee Roy Woods delves deeper into a world of accomplished soul-noir. And even across just seven tracks, you can feel this Guyanese-Canadian’s rapid development. “Chilli Peppers” is a breathlessly seductive slow jam with added Majid Jordan, “Dangerous” consciously evokes the ‘80s sheen of Michael Jackson, and “Magic”—an artfully low-wattage banger—instantly bolsters this new 6 god’s arsenal of anthems.
