We already loved this song, but the acoustic version just takes it over the top! Mateo is one of our favorite artists on the come up… What do y’all think of the song?
Here’s a lil more info on our boy:
Mateo first gained recognition and popularity through the release of several mixtapes. Garnering over a million views on YouTube, he solidified a fan base eager for his material. Intrigued by his sound and authentic voice, Grammy-award winning producer Kerry “Krucial” Brothers (Alicia Keys, Nas, Drake) took notice and soon began working with the young artist, helping him to mold his style. Also impressed was R&B star, Alicia Keys, who joined Mateo on “Say Its So,” from the Love & Stadiums II mixtape, becoming one of his biggest supporters.
Mateo has since witnessed the success of his October 2012 release, Suite 823 (Krucial Noise/Interscope Records) and is fresh off his first national tour, where he opened for Keyshia Cole and Chrisette Michele. Showing no signs of letting up, he will release his latest single and video, “How Good Is Your Love,” just in time for the summer. Showing no signs of letting up, Mateo’s EP titled, We’ve Met Before, is now available.
On We’ve Met Before, the Cincinnati crooner journeys through his emotions over a series of love songs; with his lyrics sometimes serving as a double entendre for both relationships and music. Featuring production by Kerry “Krucial” Brothers and Zeke MacUmber, each track lends its own to the signature sound Mateo has cultivated over the years: a warm blend of R&B/alternative music, presented with a smooth subtle tone and enhanced by displays of vocal forte.
“I’m in a better place than I have ever been musically. With this EP, I want to show fans how I’ve evolved. They may have met me before, but I have so much more to give them,” comments Mateo.
In addition to the EP, Mateo has been treating fans to an accompanying webseries; one that follows the star as he navigates the music scene. Mateo will continue to tour this fall and put the finishing touches on his forthcoming full length album.
We’ve Met Before is now available digitally.
