Blending R&B, hip hop, soul and pop, Matt B brings together an infectious style that keeps listeners always coming back for more. Today’s premiere, “I Spoiled You” is a reflective and silky smooth R&B pop single that showcases his vocal range. The beats alone will hook you in from the get-go, with its haunting yet sexy vibe that captures the mood and melodies of the mid 00s with some subtle hits to Cee Lo Green and Justin Timberlake.
About the song, Matt comments “‘I Spoiled You’ was one of the records presented to me by Sam Thomas and Tricky Stewart. It was actually one of the last songs that we recorded together for the album. I instantly fell in love with it because it was so different and in a lane that I typically don’t go down but wanted to explore. The melody lines were crazy, and the lyrics could go over your head if you don’t listen to them. I had a lot of fun recording the record, but it took a lot of vocal control.”
