Vevo DSCVRMatt Hunter - Lista De Espera - an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR ARTISTS TO WATCH 2019, an annual series highlighting those that are shaping the future of music.
There’s no lack of young talent in Latin music these days. From Jhay Cortez to Rosalía impressive moves have been made, and Matt Hunter is a key part of this parade. Blending a big dose of charisma with canny insights into Latin pop, the 20-year-old singer has generated lots of fan love in the past 12 months. Tracks such as “Amor Real” and “Dicen” prove that Hunter has a knack for dropping catchy choruses and putting his instantly-likable personality up front. Actually, he’s had practice wowing audiences for a while now. The New Jersey native with the Colombian mom and Italian dad has been in the entertainment biz since childhood, voicing the character of Diego in the popular “Dora the Explorer” and ‘Go, Diego, Go!’ shows. Since turning to music eight years ago, this Chris Brown and Justin Bieber fan had quick hits with “Mi Amor” and “Mi Señorita,” and developed a fervent South American audience. When headaches from that early business deal presented themselves, Hunter took a two-year respite from making music. Now he’s back with a mature outlook and a more cultivated style that still sounds like lots of fun. His fans know that he holds Prince Royce in high esteem (maybe from mom blasting bachata tunes while driving him to school as a kid), and the sexy, lighthearted vibe of his latest tracks echoes that vibe. Hunter wrote “Dicen” with his pal Cortez and cut it with social media star Lele Pons. His half-million followers on Instagram and Twitter, which includes a major supporter by the name of Marc Anthony, can’t wait to see what comes next. His DSCVR Artists To Watch performances of “Dicen” and “Lista de Espera,” accompanied by guitarist Zach Schepis (@ridethewave333), will definitely have them buzzing.
