17 year old rising teenage sensation Matilde G returns with a brand new release ‘Hypocrite’ out today, 27th January and distributed via Universal Music Group. The Italian, Singapore based singer-songwriter possesses an admirably mature, polished and self-assured style that belies her young age. Matilde recently performed for 10 days at the Hard Rock Hotel in Desaru (Malaysia) having a great time with local artists, including rising Malaysian rock singer-guitarist Muzza
‘Hypocrite’ follows on from her recent acclaimed single ‘Digging For Diamonds’ that garnered millions of streams and views globally, Matilde G’s new song channels her Gen Z ethos with a poignant and relatable message on the duplicity of young relationships.
“This song is about a guy who cheated on me. This is sadly a current topic for those who live teen-relationships. Am I the victim of a hypocritical guy? The cheater is a victim of himself and his lies. Better to kick back and go further with strength and awareness of your own value, which is never determined by the others,” said Matilde G.
“I wrote Hypocrite to send a strong message to those who have been cheated on: do not be ashamed because the true loser is the cheater! I went through painful experiences that marked me but also made me stronger and more determined not to allow anyone to manipulate me and hurt me,” she added.
From the first listen, you can immediately understand that ‘Hypocrite’ represents a further evolution and growth in the style of the young artist, who deals with more intimate personal stories coupled with more mature pop sounds and nods to rock and roll.
Produced by Karl-Oskar Gummesson from The Kennel AB, Hypocrite was co-written by Matilde G together with Josefin Glenmark (ITZY, Monsta X, Super Junior) and Isak Alvedahl.
The captivating and dynamic music video visually represents hypocrisy with a mannequin but also with masked dancers, who do not show their real faces. The young artist reveals her sensuality with dance but also takes us into her inner world with exciting piano scenes.
Produced by Black Bird Production, it was filmed in Singapore in various locations including the Hard Rock Hotel Sentosa who have embraced the project by making their Rock Star Suite available. Pianoland was the official piano partner for the MV, providing Matilde G with a Dexibell VIVO H10 MG digital piano and their studio to shoot. For the costumes the artist relied on talented students of the Raffles School of Design, while she wanted to personally take care of her make-up and hair-style.
Growing up in Rome, Matilde G studied singing and piano from an early age. In 2019 she moved to Singapore with her family, where she immediately made herself known by singing in various venues and posing as a model for Asian photographers. She has performed in Asian theatres, including the famous Nagoya Theatre in Japan and *Scape in Singapore.
Inspired by Female Pop icons such as Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga, Matilde G is not one to shy away from showing her talents and creativity when it comes to shattering music charts (where we saw her make it to the TOP10!) including bringing a young, fresh energy into the pop music scene not just in her music, but also in her attitude to put the ‘Matilde G’ flavour on the genre. She is a force to be reckoned with.
Her singles Digging For Diamonds, MilkN’Honey and Doorbell garnered tremendous support from not only Europe but also Asian countries, marking Matilde G’s entry as an international pop artist in Asia and the world. It is no coincidence that at the age of 17 she had the attention of the press as important as Billboard.
So far, her songs have received 5 million streams on Spotify with up to 100,000 monthly listeners.
Matilde G also has a great presence on Facebook, TikTok and Instagram where she has amassed a total of over 250K followers deeply engaged with the contents she posts. She was also recently picked as one of the Top 10 ‘The Hitmakers – Most Viewed Artists SG’ and ‘Artists with Most New Followers’ on ‘Year on TikTok 2022 Singapore’.
Not one to rest on her laurels, during the summer Matilde G wrote and recorded five new songs at the iconic ‘The Kennel’ studios in Stockholm slated for release in 2023.
