Up and coming artist Badpos has already pretty much covered what his track “Smooth” is all about in the title, you can throw all of the flowery adjectives at the single as you’d like but the unfaltering soundscape simply oozes a smooth vibe.
The single contains a mix of R&B, Pop and Hip Hop in an ambient downtempo mix which offers immediate catharsis. The beats have been left simplistic and soft, yet they still provide the perfect platform for Badpos’ vocals to rest neatly above as they switch between R&B Pop crooning and Hip Hop versing. The lyricism may be fairly archetypal, but considering the mesmeric pull of the single overall, that’s hardly an issue in his vibe-out playlist essential.
You can check out Badpos’s irresistibly mellifluous track Smooth along with the rest of their latest EP “the Badpos Crescendo” for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
