Alex Wiley is a multifaceted if there ever was one; whether it’s singing over a track like "The Woods" or rapping his ass off on a track like "Vibrations", Wiley has it all in his arsenal. On "Ova" his talents are perfectly showcased as he demonstrates his ability to craft and sing catchy choruses as well as spit hard memorable bars over the down-tempo beat produced by Odd Couple. A notable quality of Wiley's that sets him apart is his charisma that's palpable on all his tracks. When you listen to Wiley you know you’re in for a song that’s going to catch your attention and hold it till the end.
