Ahead of his performance of “America The Beautiful” at Super Bowl LVII this Sunday, 12X GRAMMY® Award winner, Babyface, has released his latest single, “As a matter of fact.”

Written by Babyface & co-produced by Tommy Brown (The Weeknd, Ariana Grande), “As a matter of fact” is Babyface’s first solo single since his 2015 album “Return of the Tender Lover,” and his first single under the P Music Group label.

The infectious lover’s anthem has secured an iHeart Radio World Premiere and is a follow up to Babyface’s most recent project ,“Girls Night Out,” which earned Babyface his 80th GRAMMY® nomination for his #1 single “Keeps On Fallin,’’ featuring Ella Mai in the Best Traditional R&B Performance category, in addition to charting at #1 on the Mediabase R&B chart.

As a passionate philanthropist who actively supports numerous charities, including Larry Ruvo’s “Keep Memory Alive,” Babyface has collaborated with “Shine The Light On” for two special, limited-edition hoodies and a hat in conjunction with his Super Bowl performance in which a portion of the proceeds will benefit the charity. Following Sunday’s performance, Babyface will join Anita Baker for her highly anticipated “The Songstress” arena tour beginning Feb.14 in Atlanta.
