Matilde G : None of Your Business Review
Defiant Authenticity: Matilde G’s Bold Statement in “None of Your Business”
Matilde G, the spirited Italian songstress now based in Singapore, continues her quest to redefine the pop landscape. With an already impressive background – performing across continents, being recognized in Dubai, and garnering millions of streams and views – she returns with her latest self-released single, “None of Your Business.” Distributed by Universal Music, this track marks another milestone in her meteoric rise, promising her audience an experience that’s both familiar and refreshingly new.
Opening with an entrancing synth motif, “None of Your Business” quickly establishes its dominance with an infectious and stirring rhythm. The consistent sixteenth-note synth pattern, paired with Matilde’s undeniable vocal skill, creates a sonic atmosphere that’s difficult to ignore. As the first verse unfolds, listeners are immediately struck by her vocal confidence, reminiscent of her previous works but notably matured. As the drums build, there’s an almost palpable tension that releases beautifully into the pre-chorus, showcasing Matilde’s impressive vocal range. The chorus, a blend of electro-pop and industrial undertones, offers a moody respite before the track surges forward in energy and complexity again.
Lyrically, Matilde G crafts a narrative of defiance, individuality, and empowerment with the assistance of songwriters Josefin Glenmark and Gustav Efraimsson. With lines like “None of your business What I say What I do,” she encourages listeners to embrace their uniqueness and shrug off societal constraints. This sentiment echoes her own words: “I want this song to be a lighthouse for those navigating the pitfalls of others’ judgments.” It’s a bold statement, but one that’s rooted in authenticity, a characteristic that has become synonymous with Matilde G’s brand.
Drawing parallels with my previous review of her single, “Milk N’ Honey” (read HERE), her sound has a clear trajectory of growth and refinement. While “Milk N’ Honey” had playful undertones with elements of Electro-Pop and K-Pop, “None of Your Business” seems to gravitate towards a more assertive and bold sonic palette. However, both tracks underscore Matilde’s unparalleled ability to mesh vocal sincerity with polished production – a testament to her collaboration with seasoned producers and songwriters.
In conclusion, “None of Your Business” is a single with a statement, marking the evolution of Matilde G as an artist who confidently challenges norms and fully expresses her authenticity. Having recently graced the stage at the prestigious F1 Grand Prix Singapore 2023, Matilde G has solidified her position in the global music scene. She’s not just a rising star but a luminary that continues to shine brilliantly, captivating audiences worldwide.
