Roy Woods has been keeping his creative juices flowing by dropping off his remixes of today’s popular tracks. Last month, it was Capella Grey’s “Gyalis,” shortly afterwards it was his take on Drake’s “Girls Want Girls,” and now his latest offering arrived last night (Oct. 12) as he dropped off his remix of Justin Bieber’s mega hit “Peaches.” The original song appeared on Bieber’s 2021 album Justice and included features from Giveon and Daniel Caesar. In his new remix, Roy kicks it off with an ode to the original lyrics before taking matters in to his own flow:
I like this shawty out in Georgia, but when she tell you bout her life you swear she be in Florida/ She leave the club when it’s day time, she knows she ain’t going back to her place/ I’m on the 6 side baby where we roll up
Earlier this year, Roy Woods joined Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike for their “Too Much” collab single. In 2020, Roy took part in a slew of singles and also dropped off his six-track EP titled Dem Times. Some of the other collab singles include “Drugs & Love” with Swagger Rite, “So High” with TM88 and Wiz Khalifa, a remix of Tinie Tempah’s “Moncler,” and “Juliet & Romeo” with Martin Solveig.
In an interview from last year, one of his only most recent ones, Woods delves deep into how he does some soul-searching for his music. “I just had to go through life, to be honest, and let the experiences talk through the music,” he says. “I needed to be attached to feelings again. I was going through a lot – very dark, dark places – and I had needed to go back into the old me, and what I used to do before I even got signed.”
