Album Review: Mateo | Love & Stadiums
By Susan Mutharia
I liked his voice when I first heard him sing Til She Goes. I developed a crush on his voice when I heard him sing Complicated. I knew it was love when I heard him sing Don’t Shoot Me Down featuring Goapele & Ab Liva. After the release mixtape Love and Stadiums, I affirmed my deeply rooted love and appreciation for the music of the incredible new voice of Mateo.
Mateo to me represents the power and effect of social networking. I first learnt of his work after reading a tweet from the actor and author Hill Harper. As much as I love and appreciate music, I must confess that at first I checked him out because I thought he is hot. Then I heard him sing and thought, “…wow, he can sing too.” Later, I came to learn that Hill Harper was indirectly responsible for getting Mateo signed to his former label MySpace records.
