The album showcases their signature blend of catchy hooks, clever wordplay, and infectious beats that have gained them a dedicated fanbase.

Neon sounds and funkified guitar shine as a head-nodding groove propels “Super Smash Bros.” right to the center of the dancefloor, among the album’s many highlights.

As the track builds up, the irresistible combination of catchy melodies and electrifying beats creates an atmosphere that is impossible to resist, making it a standout moment on the album.

Then there is “Onomatopoeia,” which features a glitchy beat and a snake-charming whistle as Gravy flexes, “Why you tweakin, bro? About a week ago, your b*tch caught the Gravy. The song “Pasadena” opens with a Spanish guitar loop as Gravy puts on a show: “Pasadena, speaking Elvish with a bad Latina!”  Then there is “Swipin,” which begins with raucous horns and moves into a shuffling bounce as the hook mesmerizingly repeats, swipe, swipe, swiper, I’m swipin’.” The song “Swipin” stands out with its energetic introduction of raucous horns and a captivating shuffling bounce. As the hook mesmerizingly repeats, Gravy effortlessly showcases his ability to create catchy and infectious tunes. This track is sure to have listeners hooked from the very first note.

“Nightmare on Peachtree Street” (featuring Freddie Dredd) dropped prior to Baby Gravy 3.

The song “Goodness Gracious,” which has amassed millions of streams and is still growing, was released to start this season. He praised it as one of its “best new tracks” and gave it plugs and other praise. The album’s final track, “C’est La Vie,” magnificently concludes the listening experience.
