Just 21 years old, Roy Wood$ has accomplished more in the span of two years than most people do in a lifetime. Born Denzel Spencer in Brampton, Ontario, Wood$ first caught the attention of award-winning rapper Drake in 2015, going on to be signed to the OVO SOUND label and debuting his first single "Drama" featuring Drake on OVO SOUND Radio in July of 2015. Wood$' second single "Get You Good" was also premiered on OVO SOUND Radio in late summer of 2015, right ahead of his debut EP Exis, which peaked at #10 on the U.S. R&B Billboard Charts.
In 2016, Wood$ released his second project, Waking at Dawn, which was endorsed and promoted by Drake, Wiz Khalifa and Joe Kay of Soulection, peaking at #6 on the U.S. R&B Billboard Charts. After the large success of this project, Wood$ joined Drake and Future, as well as OVO SOUND artists dvsn and Majid Jordan on the international Summer Sixteen Tour. Also in 2016, Wood$ released his second EP Nocturnal through OVO SOUND, which garnered stellar reviews, in addition to the artist amassing 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify and more than 1 million social media followers across Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
After completing two independent headlining tours, next up is the release of Roy's highly-anticipated debut album Say Less, which is bound to be his most impactful and sonically mature project to date.
