Mateo‘s got a new project, Suite 823, dropping next Wednesday. The Stacy Barthe featured track Looking You Up is the first taste of what’s to come on the project and it’s definitely looking good. This track is a sure thing to being one of the highlights off Suite 823.
Recent Interscope signee Mateo hasn’t really dropped much since his single with Alicia Keys Say It’s So, so it’s only fitting that he covers a track from an artist that has some connections to him (they have the same team working on their projects). Mateo’s able to keep the feel of Lana Del Rey’s Blue Jeans by being able to hit some of those unique notes that she pulls off, while still giving the track his own spin. I can only imagine what a stripped down performance of these two talented artists would turn out like, hopefully it happens.
While Swizz Beatz and DJ AK-47 (Alicia Keys), were out DJing, Mateo was putting the finishing touches on this video.
Off Mateo’s upcoming EP Love & Stadiums II this RnB singer recruits Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz to serve a solid first single. He definitely holds himself together with Alicia’s vocals.
