Following on from the release of “Movie Music” last year, Nafe Smallz has now dropped his latest EP “Good Love”...

The 9 track project features huge collaborations with Tory Lanez, Chip, Yung Bxne, M Huncho, OG Mano and, another Canadian feature, in Lil Berete.

Earlier this year, Nafe released “Like A Film” featuring, closely associated, M Huncho who has worked with Nafe on a number of other singles. The track was a perfect build up to this latest EP with both artists blessing fans with similar R&B/Trap sounding vocals.

The next single for the EP did not come again until earlier this month when Nafe dropped the punchline track, “Good Love” featuring Tory Lanez. Similar to “Like A Film”, “Good Love” is a track that boasts two artists known for their similar sound. The difference being, the production of “Like A Film” follows more of a UK and Trap vibe, “Good Love” has clear influences from Tory Lanez’s and instead of Trap, follows more of a Bashment vibe.

The seven other tracks fit the bill and come as expected. A mix of R&B/Trap and UK Rap that compliment each other excellently with Nafe Smallz flowing vocals and minimal auto tune. The EP holds no surprises but that is also as expected, for an artist that is still relatively up and coming. With this being said, there is strong diversity amongst the EP. Weed enthused track “Lil More” is a cool vibe and a chill melody that could easily be played as background music in the bedroom but would equally place well on party. As stated before, the Tory Lanez collab follows more of a Commercial/Bashment sound and the track with Canadian rapper Lil Berete would not sound out of place off a Lil Baby or Gunna project.

Nine tracks in total makes a perfect quantity as it prevents no song on the EP sounding too similar. Nafe Smallz has had a promising year so far, in particular with the Tory Lanez feature and his own feature on Skepta’s “Greaze Mode” which will be on of the tracks of the year for sure. The future is bright for the young artist and an EP of this caliber is just what was needed to help push his name further up the pecking order of top R&B/Trap artists of the UK.
