Stripped Down: Mateo Covers Rihanna’s “We Found Love” |Video|


Have you ever wondered what a stripped down version of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” would sound like if it was more soulful and sung by a guy? Up and coming R&B crooner Mateo has your answer. Mateo’s cover of “We Found Love” is the first song he’s reinterpreted for his “Stripped Cover Series.” Mateo tickles the ivories as he earnestly belts out the lyrics to RiRi’s pop single. His delivery is so sincere you want to fall in love with the singer/songwriter. The accompanying black and white video filled with tight and blurred shots adds a moody edge to the rawness of the cover.

Mateo’s new EP “Love & Stadiums II” is available online at iTunes and Amazon.
