Swedish based Jamaican dancehall artiste Short Ghad is generating a great buzz in Europe with his debut album ”Feel Nice”.
“The album is a tribute to love. The inspiration for the album came from my own personal experiences, my surroundings and has a happy vibe. My vision is to create happiness and positivity, and inspire people to dream big, believe in themselves and achieve all their goals,” Short Ghad, whose real name is Conrad Dwayne Williams, said.
The 19 track album includes songs such as the lead single “Feel Nice”, the dancehall banger ‘Sekkle’ and ‘Right Type a Luv’. The album is an overall mix of classical dancehall fused with pop and R’n’B. Released on the 25th of February, the album achieved the number one spot on the pre-order list on iTunes (reggae) in Sweden.
The single “Feel Nice” has ranked up over 128 000 streams on Spotify and over 500 000 streams on Facebook.
