The inclusion of acoustic instrumentals in a R&B Pop track is never an unwelcome addition, especially if the artist is able to bring a new organic vibrancy to the mix through the intricately textured guitar progressions.
Which is exactly what you get with Matteo Palmer’s single “Golden”; just one of the tracks to feature on his 2019 album Stratosphere. To make Golden even more of an arresting track, Matteo teamed up with J’mere who brought a new vocal dynamic to the single giving Matteo Palmer’s charisma something to bounce off. The instrumental mix may be soft and down tempo, but the acoustic fingerstyle guitar still pulls you further into the arrangement which packs in plenty of groove which is neatened by the polished Pop production.
