2013 could be the year that R&B/pop singer-songwriter Mateo makes it big. Signing to Interscope Records this year, and releasing his EP We've Met Before, the 27-year-old is having one exciting year, and we're excited to be a part of it by sharing his My Musical Mind handwritten questionnaire with y'all.
His musical influences include Lauryn Hill, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, and Daft Punk, so if you imagined all four of those artist's sounds in a blender, Mateo's music might be . Check out his doodled-up MMM (we love when artists get creative!) where he tells us what song he last listened to (it's a good one), as well as what career choice he'd go for if he wasn't making music. See it here:
We have an exclusive clip of Mateo explaining the lyrics of his song "Love Is A Gun": watch him go into detail about how love can be painful, but addictive in the clip below...
As a bonus, Mateo recently covered one of his favorite songs right now (mentioned in the survey!), Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home", and you can watch it here:
