Roy Woods, the Canadian musical sensation, is taking the world by storm once again. Fresh off the release of his latest studio album, he’s set to embark on a thrilling 28-city ‘Me & U’ tour, much to the delight of his eager fans. But before hitting the road, Roy Woods has gifted the world with the artistically ingenious visuals for his chart-topping single, ‘Test What I Know.’
‘Test What I Know’ is a steamy and sultry track that beckons us to “get back to love.” Released on July 19, 2023, the song quickly captivated listeners with its mesmerizing melodies and heartfelt lyrics. It’s a sonic journey through the complexities of love and relationships, a theme that Roy Woods masterfully explores on his highly anticipated album, ‘Mixed Emotions.’
‘Mixed Emotions’ is a 17-track opus that demonstrates Roy Woods’ exceptional talent and versatility. It features notable collaborations with the likes of hip-hop heiress and rapper Coi Leray, the enchanting Jada Kingdom, and the soulful Vory. With each song, the album delves deep into the intricate tapestry of human feelings, offering a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
But what truly sets ‘Test What I Know’ apart is its artistically genius music video. Roy Woods, known for his prowess as both a musician and visual storyteller, has once again outdone himself. The video for this track is a work of art, seamlessly blending the past, present, and future into a single narrative. It’s a representation of a world where time converges, a place where love and nostalgia collide.
Roy Woods himself describes the video’s concept best: “The artsy left field approach in this music video represents the song in my eyes perfectly. Past, present, and future all at one time all mixed into one song, one feeling, and this video shows that. In a sense almost stuck in this world we’ve created with each other not wanting to leave and feeding off each other’s energies both positive and negative.”
The visuals kick off with a young woman, embodying sensuality, entranced by the beat of Roy’s heart, as if dancing to the rhythm of his emotions. It’s a mesmerizing portrayal of Roy’s desire to rekindle a love he thought was lost. Through captivating melodic cries, he yearns to reconnect with a toxic former relationship from his past, and she becomes his guide in rediscovering how to love her again by putting their connection to the test.
For Roy Woods, this music video represents a commitment to reclaiming his artistry, both in music and visuals, much to the joy of his loyal fans. The ‘Me & U’ Tour is particularly special as it marks the OVO Sound artist’s return to touring since his SOLD OUT “Say Less” Tour in 2018.
As Roy Woods readies himself to hit the stage once more, fans can’t help but anticipate the electrifying experiences he has in store for them. His music and visuals promise to take them on a journey through the complexities of human emotions, and the ‘Me & U’ Tour is the perfect opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of this talented artist. Roy Woods is back, and he’s ready to captivate hearts and minds all over again.
