SMO’s latest single, “GoodLife”, is a slow jam set to the lightweight swing of a Reggae beat Doc Side produces. The rocksteady guitar baseline from Thomas Grande is prepped up horns, percussion harmonies, laid back drum riffs and warmhearted performances from SMO and Davina Oriakhi who sing of their dreamy path to living the good life.
The instrumental offers SMO the space to be meek even when he lays down cocky lines. At one point, he compares himself to Tony Stark of the Marvel cinematic universe, making his showoff charming. Davina Oriakhi’s verse is similarly pleasant as she blurs the lines between modest and assertive, singing “I Know Who I am, Don’t Need No Acknowledgment” before her coos and ad-libs set the song to a hip-swaying and hypnotic pace.
