Roy Woods has been keeping his creative juices flowing by dropping off his remixes of today’s popular tracks. Last week, it was Capella Grey’s “Gyalis,” and now his latest offering is his take on Drake’s “Girls Want Girls.” The Brampton artist puts his twist on the successful Certified Lover Boy stand-out and the RoyMix arrives along with a visual that is shot and edited by Jesse Dart. On the song, he matches the essence of the original track:
Know that you been dyin’ for the “Come through” (Come through)/ You the one who tell the bitches “Come through” (Tell them) why you pullin’ up? So disrespectful (Oh, no, no)/ Girls in my city wanna flex too (Flex)
You been dyin’ for the “Come through,” bring the girls too (Bring the girls too)/ Don’t be gettin’ in your head ‘cause I like your friend too (I like your friend too)/ Quiet down in my ear, seein’ that I like you (Mm-mm) top tier, ain’t nobody flossin’ like you (Flossin’ like you)/ Don’t trip, she don’t do that thing like you
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.”
