‘Red Wine’ serves as the EP’s opener and fittingly so. Jay Cliff gets the feel going by making his intentions crystal clear from the get-go.

The act, backed by $pacely and Ayuu reminisce about the things done and said after a night off that good red wine.
Up next is ‘Island Girl’ which has producer Moor Sound aboard to lay in some sweet-sounding vocals. Jay Cliff does same, but delivers in Twi for the first time on this Afrobop record. ‘Chargie’ slots in as track 4 and is a definite Afro swing banger. Produced by the Flowerpapi, Jay Cliff tags sensational Canadian artist, Tome, to help deliver a high confidence tune about their current state of emotions and situations.
SL-based producer, KillerBase handles Jay Cliff’s next beaut sound, ‘Vybz & Chill’. Laced with smooth strings and head-bopping drum progressions, the song features Sierra Leone-based star, Kaygee ADN to get its message out - intimacy is all about the vibes! Finally, Jay Cliff and four-time VGMA 'Best Female Vocal Performance' award winner, Efya wrap things up in grand style on ‘No Time (Bonus)’. Both put up a harmonious vocal performance that rests gracefully atop the Daniel-produced sound.
Jay Cliff is on to something and 'Red Wine Conversations' is bound to play a critical role in his lay-up to success.
