Woods, who draws influence from artists such as Michael Jackson, Nelly, The Weeknd, his OVO boss and more, has been developing his own distinctively soulful sound, with Say Less further solidifying his reputation as one of forward-thinking R&B's most exciting up-and-coming artists.

The album spans 16 tracks and features guests such as PnB Rock, PartyNextDoor, 24 Hrs and dvsn. Additionally, as revealed in a heartfelt post on Instagram, Woods shares that his own sister designed the project's cover art.

"This is a time that i dreamed of and worked my life off for, i never thought I'd be here at 21 and the fact that my little sister Diana made the cover art means the world to me, i love you guys forever till death and never will Roy Woods stop being Roy Woods EVER," the OVO singer shared with his fans. "i love making music and i love my life with all you guys and i can't wait to see you on tour soon . . s/o everyone that was a part of this project to make this come thru and possible . Time to Say Less and Do more guys. Love y'all it's time #SayLess"
