This week, for Must Listen Music Mondays Episode 6, we’re taking it to the 6ix and featuring artists affiliated with OVO Sound.
I Was Runnin’ Through The 6ix…
For those who aren’t familiar with the 6ix or OVO Sound, let me point you in the direction of Drake. Drake is a Canadian-born rapper who hails from Toronto, which he has affectionately dubbed the 6ix. He is one of the biggest rappers out right now.
What some might not know, is that Drake also has a record label managing several artists. His label is called October’s Very Own Sound (or OVO Sound) and features artists such as Majid Jordan, dvsn, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Roy Woods. I’m dedicating this version of Music Monday to OVO Sound and the 6ix.
Must Listen Music Mondays Episode 6
dvsn is a Canadian duo consisting of Daniel Day and Nineteen85. They have a sexy, sultry sound that gets me every time. All of their songs are perfect for a date night soundtrack or a pamper me session that ends with a nice bubble bath by candlelight. The lead singer, Daniel Day has an AMAZING voice!
2. Her – Majid Jordan
Majid Jordan is another Canadian duo comprised of members Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman. This is one of my favorite songs from them, and it definitely has those sexy/sultry vibes like the song from dvsn. Last week, I mentioned songs that I can just play on repeat to get me out of a funk and this is another song that can be added to that list.
3. Schemin’ Up – OB O’Brien feat. Drake & P. Reign
OB O’Brien is a Canadian-based rapper. I will admit that OB O’Brien is one of the only OVO artists I’m not really familiar with. But, I really liked this song when I listened to it.
4. Not Nice – PARTYNEXTDOOR
PARTYNEXTDOOR does it all. He is a singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer. Fun fact: He actually wrote Rihanna’s hit “Work”. To be honest, I’m completely surprised that I haven’t featured PND until now because I love his music! I fell in love with his music before he became really big and have been following him ever since. This is the latest song from him that I can play and dance to on repeat.
5. Get You Good – Roy Woods
Roy Woods is another multi-talented artist. He is a rapper, singer, and songwriter. Roy Woods has such a different sound with his vocals. At first, I wasn’t sure if I liked it but it’s so unique and it has really grown on me.
Have you ever visited the 6ix? Are you a fan of Drake and the OVO artists? What songs do you think I should listen to next?
