We at BVM are just gonna be honest and say we never heard this song until now but we are definitely fans now thanks to this cover. The arrangement, visuals, vocals, and vunerability  mos def warrant the crazy view count this video has already. We have been fans of Matt since we found his "Have you ever" cover with Mario Jose and Vincint Cannady. Haven't seen it?? Click Here

Here is what Matt had to say about the cover

When I first heard this amazing song by Mr. Charlie Puth, I immediately thought it would sound incredible as a ballad. With the lyrical content and everything, its ballad central. I really hope you enjoy this twist on an amazing summer jam!
But lets not drag this out because you are here to hear the song right? Well lets get to it then

Too Good at Goodbyes - Sam Smith (cover by @MattBloyd)

When ya new favorite voice covers one of ya favorite voices!!!! Thats exactly what happened when Matt Bloyd chose to cover Sam Smith's new song "Too Good At Goodbyes" it feels a lot warmer then the original that haunts us when Sam sings it. We love how Matt put his own  twist on it and showed off that killer range that made us a fan from the  first day we heard him.

Here is what Matt had to say about choosing the cover

I am a huge fan of Sam Smith's voice and his artistry. After a two year hiatus, Sam is back with "Too Good at Goodbyes" and I could not be more excited. He's truly an inspiration. When I heard this song I KNEW I had to cover it and got right on it. Hope you love my take on this JAM.
