Rap/Hip-Hop - Released March 26, 2019 | XO Records, LLC and Republic Records

Over the course of just a few years, Canadian rapper NAV went from a strong online presence with self-produced tracks of Drake-esque, feelings-heavy trap to chart-topping albums on the Weeknd's major-label offshoot imprint XO. Employing the same minimal production and melodic sensibilities as Drake and same druggy lyrical narratives as Future, NAV's output looked to mainstream rap for its blueprint. Second album Bad Habits follows the formula of both NAV's 2018 debut Reckless and his 2017 collaboration with Metro Boomin, Perfect Timing. Empty atmospheric beats make plenty of space for NAV's flexing raps about girls, money, drugs, and fame, hitting high points on single "Know Me" and the Gunna-assisted "Hold Your Breath." When taken in anything more than single-song doses, however, Bad Habits quickly goes from generic fun to mind-numbing tedium. NAV's rapping abilities and lyrical choices are one factor, as he listlessly drones through uninspired flows about how much money he has or the struggles he faces on his climb to fame. Even "Why You Crying Mama," a would-be tribute to his mother, feels hollow and distracted, sounding like NAV is reading lyrics off his phone in the studio in what's supposed to be a passionate display of appreciation. Harder to stomach is the interchangeability of the beats, almost all of which begin with a drifting, eerie pad before trap drums come in at roughly the same tempo, stick around for just shy of three minutes, and then give way to the next. Guest spots by Young Thug and the Weeknd inject some much-needed personality into Bad Habits, but it's not enough to save the album from its own blandness. © Fred Thomas /TiVo

NAV

Rap/Hip-Hop - Released February 24, 2017 | XO Records

The self-titled album from NAV, Navraj Goraya, followed boosts from Kylie Jenner and Drake, a featured appearance on Travis Scott's "Beibs in the Trap," and a deal with the Weeknd's major label-supported XO label. On "Beibs in the Trap," NAV resembled a congested and half-awake Justin Bieber and rhymed "ho," "bro," "snow," and "toes" in sing-songy fashion. The Toronto native is in a similar mode here, over predominantly trap-styled tracks that are more about creating a low-wattage soundtrack for chemical and sexual mischief than foundations for songs. The album's most popular track -- "Some Way," allegedly a Bieber diss -- is the one that features the Weeknd. © Andy Kellman /TiVo

Rap/Hip-Hop - Released May 8, 2020 | Republic Records

In the span of just a few years, Canadian rapper NAV released project after project of his atmospheric mainstream trap, taking over the charts as he went. Good Intentions is his third studio LP in as many years, following 2019's Bad Habits by about 14 months. This newest volume continues with the same attributes NAV has presented repeatedly throughout his discography with little in the way of progress or variation. There's wooden rhyming about drugs, sex, cars, and fame, all delivered with the same dull, monotonous flows that were already wearing thin on the last album. Good Intentions is redeemed slightly by its incrementally improved production choices and impressive list of guest artists. The strongest songs on the lengthy album are those when NAV's juvenile lyrics and generic performances are enlivened by more talented artists dropping in to collaborate. "Turks" includes verses from Gunna and Travis Scott, both approaching the song from interesting angles and breathing life into it. Young Thug contributes to several songs, and other highlights include appearances from Lil Durk, Future and Pop Smoke. The instrumentals for songs like "No Ice" and "Brown Boy" break NAV out of his tired formula considerably, offering a respite from the sometimes-identical-sounding track list. Ultimately, Good Intentions is another tedious and personality-free NAV album, but the faint hints of development and help from better artists help make up for it. © Fred Thomas /TiVo
