Love Me Harder – Title Track
The beginning with the whistle and the guitar riff reminds me of a Jonas Bros song. It feels more poppy than I’m used to from him but I can see the mass appeal. By the chorus and the beat change I find myself dancing to this. The video I really like. It kind of has a Fight Club storyline. I’m just glad that he got rid of that red hair and mullet. Wasn’t feeling it.
The beginning is NOTHING like what I thought this song would be. The demon saw opening into a trap R&B song was a switch up I wasn’t expecting but don’t dislike. Here we’re highlighting Woodz’ falsetto tone that he does so well.
More rock undertones in this. It’s really mellow and has a nice bass underlay. Kind of gives me Post Malone vibes but better.
I am in love with this song. The hook is addictive and the beat is what I love about Woodz’ style. It has a nice mixture of Hip Hop and R&B but with his vocals it gives it a Pop undertone. Love love love.
Waikiki (feat. Colde)
I really like Colde as a producer and performer. This is exactly the kinda of product I expected from this collaboration. It’s eerie futuristic R&B.
BUCK (feat. punchnello)
This feels more luizy than woodz and I’m here for this straight in your face hip hop track. It’s a typical trap beat but the chorus is fun and allows you to really like the rap verses.
memories is a rock ballad wrapping up the album. It is sweet and nothing really bad about it. Allows my boy to really show off his vocals. One for the chill playlist.
I’ve been a fan of Woodz way before his stint on Produce X 101. I’m happy to finally getting an album from him and showcasing his talent as a creator and performer. Some songs I like more than others but each one different from the last and I like the variety of sounds he’s given us. Even gave us a MV showing off his dance skills. Show us those UNIQ moves!!
