West Coast RnB act ‘Livin Out Loud’ come with the third UK single ‘All That Really Matters’ from their album What About Us? The track’s radio edit features ‘Hit Maker’ remix team 5AM, who have recently had top 5 chart success with their mix of the Lemar single ‘Not That Easy’. Other artists they have worked with include Usher, Kelly Rowland, Mario, Donell Jones and Christine Aguilera. Club wise the remixes come from M J Cole, Karl Tuff Enuff Brown, Ray Paxon & Groove Professor plus GE (Gary Esson). The track is a smooth and sultry percussive groove that features the best vocal performance to-date from front man Reuben MacCalla. Its lyric in particular, is a personal statement reflecting on his feelings for a woman he fell in love with. “She got inside my heart, mind and soul. Once that happened I could never let her go. The mood of the song is a reflection of how she makes me feel. It’s not always peaches and cream, but I would not have it any other way. She challenges me and always makes me want to be a better person.” Inspired music indeed.
