One thing's for sure: Blackbear, born as Matthew Musto, was in front of the line when singing qualities were handed out. This American songwriter, beat smith, extravagant social media personality and strong live performer is on his way to the top. Fast. His third studio album, which he released in May this year, is brimful of extremely well produced angsty trap ballads, which he likes to categorize as 'vibe'. Blackbear vouches for a solid live performance which he will elaborately demonstrate in December in our Max. We're counting the days.
