Ivory is the debut single of R.E.A.L Collaborations own Matthew Craig, who had previously teased his individual endeavours with two features on Juñor’s “Free Mined” projects before finally releasing his own debut single Ivory.
Matthew Craig blends his smooth, melodic delivery with a simplistic yet hard-hitting beat splashed with jazz influences, from the hypnotising piano to the lingering saxophone.
Ivory is an entry into the mind of Matthew Craig, a stream of consciousness lasting a little over 3 minutes. The lyrics are introspective and at times poignant, painting a picture of the brooding frame of mind that he has found himself in.
Having already supported the likes of T-Pain, Watsky, Allday and Remi before ever releasing music, it seems that even bigger and better things are on the way for Matthew Craig following the release of Ivory.
