    If you like Yasiin Bey, listen to Jayaire Woods.

    Soul samples, big drums, and introspective lyrics are at the center of Jayaire Woods' formula for success. He's a musician first, and knows when to fill space or let a beat breathe. It works especially well on tracks like "Toolong." and "2SHOES," hazy love songs that dissect relationships in painstaking detail.

    This 5 On It alum has a distinctive voice and organic charm that sets his music apart, and don't be surprised if you hear a lot more of it soon.
