Confia [Trust] is the name of Matay's new solo single. With lyrics and music by AGIR, the song addresses the complexity of love, which can swing between emotionally favorable moments and more demanding ones, leading to despair. Confia is an anthem to life and once again proves that it is impossible to remain indifferent to Matay's voice, which combines the warmth of his African roots with other influences such as soul and gospel, all while displaying impeccable technique and excellent interpretation.
In 2023, Matay returned with Eu Espero [I Wait], his latest single and the first from his new album, to be released at the end of the year. The successor to BYE BYE (2021) has music, lyrics, and production by AGIR and portrays a "poetically heartbreaking pain that wounds our very being," according to Matay. The lyrics revolve around the discovery that we can only be a "home" for someone else when we learn to take care.
Matay reached the final of the Festival RTP da Canção in 2019, where he performed Perfeito [Perfect], a song with lyrics by Boss AC and music by Tiago Machado. In 2015, the successful Dizer Que Não [Saying No] was released, on which the singer collaborates with Dengaz, and in 2017 Matay released his first single, O Que Tu Dás [What You Give], which has over 20 million views on Youtube.
