Performance: Shawn Mathews - Next To Me

Quick Thoughts: Shawn Mathews has had a busy year. He released an EP, Blue, in April and followed the project up with three singles, the most notable of which was "Wanna Be." With this impressive output, Mathews has begun to develop a signature sound: an intriguing blend of alt-rock and hip-hop that will draw comparisons to Dominic Fike. "Next To Me," Mathews' final single of the year, is a catchy, well-written track that shows why Mathews talent has drawn so much attention recently.
