I think it depends more on how you define smooth. 

 

A style like rap doesn't seem very smooth to these ears. They are talking, it is very stuttered.

 

Smooth to me would be some great jazz singing, but I think voice alone would be hard to produce "smooth". 

 

Ambient or some something slow and melodic sounds more like it to me.

"Jimmy diggin' Cats" on Digable Planets' album "Reachin". Come to think of it, the entire album is very much the definition of smoothness IMHO.
