All the Love I Need is afro-pop sensation Nu Baby’s stellar upcoming release, his first and last of the year. Featuring three tracks which demonstrate the artist’s musical range and ability, the EP is noteworthy for its clever lyricism and experimental genre-play by the artist and producers alike. Inspired by the love from his fans and those in his immediate circle, “All The Love I Need” is the artist’s gift in return, a token to those who have supported him thus far, and a statement of his ability to his naysayers.
On “What Can I”, a freestyle recorded in under an hour, the artist pines after the object of his affection, as he wonders what he can do to win her love. Despite the brooding lyrical content, the afro-pop track features a slew of instruments such as the piano, saxophone and drums, which all contribute towards a bouncy, vibrant and layered soundscape where the artist’s voice is allowed to shine.
“Red Light Interlude” is different from what we might expect from the artist. Featuring 808s and a heavy bass, the sensual, sultry track showcases a side to Nu Baby that we have previously not encountered. The bridge features a rap-like bar, where the artist employs a baritone to deliver a memorable lyric to the object of his seduction. This lyrical quality, combined with the song’s vocal range and outstanding production, easily make red light interlude one of Nu’s strongest tracks.
The final song, “Danc/O”, is the result of many months of experimentation and re-working done by the artist and producers. Nu Baby delivers playful lyrics in a honey-sweet tone over a bouncy track that features many layers of sound- from drums to the xylophone to a Lagbaja sample. These elements all work perfectly together to create an outstanding, infectious dance track that is lighthearted while also retaining incredible replay value.
“All The Love I Need” is Nu Baby’s bold and boisterous return to the music scene, a defining project that highlights his growth as an artist.
