London-based Nigerian producer Parker Ighile , a man whose racked up production credits for Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, drops the black-and-white visuals to his first solo single “So Beautiful” — a melancholy-tinged pop composition built on synthesizer arpeggios and ambulance sirens. The Los Angeles-shot music video is the first taste from Ighile’s upcoming Young, Dumb & 21 mixtape, the prequel to his debut album on Nicki Minaj’s record label (of which he was the first signee). Watch “So Beautiful” below, it’s got definite pop potential.

    You gotta love a beautiful voice singing meaningful full sentence. (Yes It is rare).don’t see how he fits in with nicki minaj…but hey ‘ so beautiful’ is the only song I heard. From what I heard, can’t help but think that andy allo or mela machinko will compliment him…even jimetta rose. Would be a nice soulful track
