Roy Woods’ rise to prominence is one many dream of, but few achieve.

The Canadian/Guyanese musician first captured the attention of Drake when he was 19-years-old and was then signed by Drizzy to his OVO Sound record label propelling him into the spotlight.

Since then, Woods has gone on to tour with such Hip-Hop heavyweights such as Future, Migos, and, of course, Drake himself.

The star, who is able to balance big, club hits such as his song ‘Shot Again,’ with more emphatic sounds like the ones displayed in his most recent track, ‘I Feel It,’ has amassed a total of 930 million career-streams to-date.

That Grape Juice‘s Samuel Eni sat down with Woods (virtually) for a candid convo, in which he discussed making more mature music with his latest release, an EP named ‘Dem Times,’ his post-lockdown plans, dreams of working with Frank Ocean, and much more.

Tune into the interview above to learn more about this superstar in the making.

It’s been two months since Tinashe hosted a contest for fans to appear in the ‘Hopscotch’ music video, a move that signaled the Killah B-produced tune was set to be the latest single launched from her 2019 ‘Songs For You’ album (as we reported here)

As if earning a #1 hit on the R&B charts with his Ella Mai-assisted ‘Don’t Waste My Time’ wasn’t enough, R&B veteran Usher also recently saw his name printed atop iTunes R&B tallies for his Tyga-assisted song, ‘California’ (click here to listen).

The warm response to his lengthy absence from the music scene has apparently encouraged the 8x GRAMMY winner to unveil even more new music as evidenced by the recently released, ‘I Cry.’ 

An emotional cut seemingly inspired by the ongoing racial unrest in America, Ush croons on the track:

“I cry / For the sons without fathers / And the pain that their mothers / Hold deep inside / And I’ll fight / For the future we’re making / We can change if we face it / ‘Cause these tears won’t dry / So I cry…”

While Doja Cat‘s breakthrough hit, ‘Say So,’ can only boast a singular week atop the Billboard Hot 100, the song’s domination at Pop Radio has extended for over a month.

Consistently racking up airtime from some of the top stations in the United States, those who thought the rising rapstress’ racism scandal would deter airplay were sadly mistaken as the Dr. Luke-crafted jam continued to best the performance of some of the day’s top hits on the format (as we reported here).

After six weeks of riding high atop the Pop Radio charts, however, week 7 saw ‘Say So’ say goodbye to the tally’s summit.
