Ark Woods is a smooth operator in his new single and video Slide On You — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
The Honolulu hip-hopper’s buoyant new track is every bit as charmingly seductive as its title sounds, delivering a catchy chorus wrapped in an irresistibly funky groove that belongs on a summer playlist next to his fellow Hawaiian Bruno Mars, classic jams from the Soul Train era and great artists from Sam Cooke to J. Cole.
But don’t think for a second Woods is only here for a good time. The well-rounded performer’s output runs the gamut from beat and fun-loving to moving and memorable. His lyrics often present an unflinching account of his experiences and beliefs, covering everything from social anxiety and depression, to love and commitment, to domestic violence, police brutality, and the Black Lives Matter movement.
