With “Tampico,” the talented artiste offers listeners dance-inducing sounds with catchy lyrics. “Tampico” is produced by Hyphen and Gmastered, and is layered with upbeat afro-drums, guitar chord arrangements, and afro-jazz inspired saxophone sounds. Nú Baby’s use of afro-drums and afro-jazz saxophones is also evident in his debut EP, All the Love I Need, which put the artiste’s genre-blending style on display.

Nú Baby’s 2022 three-tracked EP, All the Love I Need, featured the sultry song, “What Can I Do,” the afro-soul “Red Light Interlude,” and the rhythmic jazz, afro-funk and afro-soul infused “Danc/O.” With “Tampico,” Nú Baby continues his stylistic exploration of afro-infused sounds that are catchy and inviting.
