Slim K x The Chopstars - NS52

Slim K of The Chopstars’s ‘Nice & Slow 52’ mixtape won’t just have listeners catching feelings, but sending texts, as well.

Whenever Slim K drops a ‘Nice & Slow’ mixtape, one of two things is bound to happen: either it’s about to get colder, and Slim K is setting up listeners to cuff something to keep warm with; or it’s heating up outside, and Slim K wants to stoke the flames of already hot nights.

Nice & Slow 52: Catchin’ Feelings follows January’s Nice & Slow 51.5: 1-800-Slim K Chopline, as the latest addition to the Chopstars DJ’s long-running mixtape series. Slim K once again gives the chopped not slopped treatment to select recent slow jams, making them burn even slower than they already do. Most of Nice & Slow isn’t surprising: Ye Ali (a Slim K favorite) appears twice, as do DVSN (and the CNS version of “Too Deep” should be handled with caution); Slim K brings out the beckoning on Rihanna’s “Sex With Me” much more; a sizzurp-slow take on PARTYNEXTDOOR & Drake’s popular “Come & See Me” even kicks off the tape. Drake’s Brandy-sampling “Fire & Desire” also closes out Nice & Slow 52 in a sizzling finale.

But it’s not simply business as usual on Nice & Slow 52 – indeed, Slim K slides in a few surprises. YouTube sensation William Singe’s cover of “PillowTalk” is present. Just Brittany’s seductive sleeper cut “On Top” is nestled between Rihanna’s “Yea, I Said It” and D.R.A.M. and SZA’s “Caretaker” to make for an excellent three-hit combo of grooves. And Shai’s “If I Ever Fall in Love” and Adina Howard’s “T-Shirt & Panties” can be found as “throwbacks” on Nice & Slow 52; “T-Shirt & Panties” chopped not slopped is, um, the very opposite of a contraceptive, to say the least.
