New Music Video: Blow: Matt Blvck

After releasing his newest single ‘Blow’ back in May, UK’s next male R&B break-out star, MATT BLVCK has recently dropped the visuals to accompany the catchy classic R&B tune and popular number ‘Nia’ taken from his second EP, ‘After Party’.

Hailing from South London,  MATT BLVCK has received continuous support from official Spotify playlists Spotify & Chill and Slow Jamz for his previous single ‘Nia’, and recent support from the newest Spotify UK RNB playlist for his latest single ‘Blow’

Writing for over three years and recording for over two, the slick soulful contender writes about the build up and breakdown of relationships, love and loss, and his change in focus. ‘Blow’ features a catchy acoustic hook atop a sexy RnB beat paired with Matt’s distinctive vocals which switch from sultry singing to a more urban spoken word.

Creating sexy R&B jams and sitting in a gap that has been missed over the past couple of years, Matt is growing in popularity within the R&B scene whilst paving the way with his own distinctive sound which plays on old school R&B inspired by the likes of Usher, whilst still remaining current and fresh.
