Explore Matt B’s “My Light” Single: A Heartfelt Ode to Love

Matt B is a GRAMMY-nominated, Los Angeles-based songsmith from Chicago. Not too long ago, he revealed a lovely visualizer for his heartfelt and devotional single, “My Light.”

Matt B – “My Light” (Official Visualizer)

“I wanted the video to express a sense of longing. The water represents renewal and cleansing. The dancer’s elegant and almost ritualistic moves not only represent the light that I see and feel in my heart towards the person I love but also a renewed sense of personal being and awareness.

We all are in search of love or a relationship with deeper meaning. Throughout our journey of life, this is one of the most difficult things to find. When that perfect someone crosses paths with you, it’s like everything just clicks all at once. All of the other relationships prior to meeting this person mean nothing. All you want is for this person to be yours. This record represents that deep admiration and expressing the love that you feel for them.” – Matt B explained

“My Light” reflects on the journey of finding a life partner and celebrates the profound love shared between that perfect match. Directed by his wife, manager, and producer Angela Benson, the accompanying scenic visual shows Matt at the beach, joined by a dancer from The Chocolate Drops, as he sings about finally finding that special someone.

“My Light” will be featured Matt B’s forthcoming EP, “AMANZI,” out June 21st via Vitae Records. Translating to ‘water’ in the African language of Zulu, “AMANZI” marks a new chapter in Matt B’s career as he surrenders to the restorative and healing energy of natural elements.

“AMANZI” follows Matt’s 2023 critically acclaimed Afrobeats album, “ALKEBULAN” (pronounced al-kee-boulan), a powerful display of Matt’s artistry as he aims to build a bridge of unity between his Motherland and America, which debuted on six Billboard charts including Top New Artist Albums, Top Albums, Top Current Album Sales, and on Digital Albums.

Meaning “Mother of Mankind,” the album offers a culturally rich listening experience infused with African elements such as conga shakers, djembe and bougarabou drums, and call-and-response singing, elevating the soundscape he has so brilliantly captured with his various Afro-inspired releases.

Known for his romantically driven R&B music, Matt B has cemented himself as a bona fide talent and a force to be reckoned with. He has built a worldwide fanbase with his chart-topping singles and albums including his 2014 international debut, “Love & War,” and sophomore album, “DIVE.” Both releases went #1 on the iTunes R&B Charts and were later followed by his 2018 EP, “RISE,” produced by GRAMMY-Award Winner Bryan-Michael Cox (Mariah Carey, Usher, Mary J. Blige).

In 2021, Matt released his debut US album, “EDEN,” which featured production from Cox as well as Tricky Stewart (Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Rihanna) and landed in the Top 40 on Billboard’s R&B Albums, Digital Albums, Heatseekers, and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Charts.
