There was no preview of Views from the 6 tonight on OVO Sound Radio, but the live stream did include a new track from OVO's Roy Wood$. Oliver El-Khatib played Wood$' latest track, "How I Feel," during tonight's episode, and the Toronto singer put up the song on his soundcloud shortly after it made its debut on Beats 1. Though the song is titled "How I Feel," the beat is made up of elements of the song "Rube," released in March 2014 by the Norwegian electronic artist known as Pandreas.
The new track finds Wood$ channeling the house-y R&B sound that OVO has been purveying with acts like Majid Jordan and dvsn. One can hear a little bit of The Weeknd (or, by extension, MJ) in his more aggressive vocals. Also on tonight's show, El-Khatib revealed that Wood$ has an upcoming project titled Waking at Dawn, on which "How I Feel" is expected to appear. The month of March is gonna be an exciting one for OVO.
Undress me, touch me how you want when I'm here
Feel my presence when I'm here
Keep it real around me when I'm here
Don't get lost 'round here
