The new-wave R&B singer has been working with some of the best producers out of Canada for his songs and we just can't get enough of it. "Vanilla Ways" is his first track of 2016, and we can't find one reason not to put it out there for everyone to hear. Released through Montreal label JUS POP! the Noah Barer, Cavewerk and Francis Duchesne produced track is their debut on the music scene, and they picked right.

The track sees Matthew Chaim moving closer to his r&b influences while still incorporating his new age hip hop foundation. his raw lyrical abilities with warm toned vocals to create something that sounds all around fresh.

Matthew’s start in music came from writing punchline rap, influenced greatly by Childish Gambino’s early mixtapes. Matthew continued to grow as a writer and soon introduced singing to his repertoire, while maintaining the lyrical drive he started with, Matthew now puts forth strong feelings of R&B soul and emotion in his music. - IX Daily

Emerging Montreal-based music maker Matthew Chaim has released an infectious new offering, a hip-hop infused cut which is simply called "Untitled."

""Vanilla Ways" (prod. by Noah Barer, Cavewerk, & Francis Duchesne)"

Matthew Chaim might be a new name to many of you, but he's no novice when it comes to what electronic-laced R&B he represents. With tracks like his latest, "Vanilla Ways", he's sure to rise up the genre's ranks in no time at all. "Vanilla Ways" has several hands at play, production-wise, as such individuals as Noah Barer, Cavewerk, and Francis Duchesne craft an instrumental that's seething with a toasty vibe throughout. The Canadian vocalist exploits the sounds, perfectly, too, and it's almost impossible not to immerse yourself in the tune on the first listen when all of their elements are combined. - HillyDilly

"A Walk With Matthew Chaim: From "Mondays In The Bishi" To Finding His Own Flow"

Launching a successful music career in the digital age is no easy feat. Young musicians seeking to establish themselves these days are often faced with the unenviable task of finding an authentic voice in an era where self-produced performers are a dime a dozen. Some try to be a jack of all trades, guided by the idea that doing a little bit of everything will turn them into something unique, while others spend years crafting a single image, aesthetic, or sound that will eventually underscore everything they create.

Matthew Chaim’s hip-hop career may be in its early stages, but the young singer/MC seems to have already learned the invaluable lesson that, while all artists invariably need to grow and develop to meet their full potential, there are times when the best course of action is to settle into your own productive, creative niche.
