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," said Short Ghad, whose real name is Conrad Dwayne Williams.

Released on February 25, the album achieved the number one spot on the pre-order list on iTunes (reggae) in Sweden. The album was produced by Swedish producer Jens Malmlöf and is available on all digital platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, and YouTube.

The 19-track album includes 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&B .

Short Ghad recently turned his attention towards getting his music more traction in Jamaica, and he has been amping up promotion of Right Type a Luv.

"This is the song I am running with right now. I am getting a big feedback at the weekly events with this song; it is gratifying that my people are feeling my music. I am getting a lot of videos with the song playing," he said.

Short Ghad is booked to perform on a show on October 29 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Short Ghad started his career as DJ Rizzle. Four years ago he decided to focus on his passion of creating his own music. He has been making inroads in the European market and recently performed at the Öland Roots Festival in Sweden.
