Cynikal drops the video for “Beautiful”

Fresh from being added to the bill for this year’s Isle of Wight Festival, fast-rising British Asian Hip-Hop artist and producer, CYNIKAL (real name Tavinder Sanghera) debuts some brand new visuals for “Beautiful,” a previously unreleased collaboration with British Soul rising star Kaleem Taylor.

Originally recorded back in 2012 and sampling “Daughters” by Hip-Hop legend Nas, Cynikal’s “Beautiful” is an authentic, warm and honest Hip-Hop story about love and lasting relationships. Having been premiered by CJ Beatz on BBC 1Xtra, it arrives just in time for the Summer, especially with its nostalgic Hip-Hop bounce and wholehearted flavor, courtesy of live violin arrangements from street violinist himself Adaggio and live guitar from Matt Money.

Keeping with the Summery sonic theme, Cynikal and visual illustrator Daniel De Silva have put together an excellently befitting lyric video that resoundingly brings to life, this love story Cynikal is painting on “Beautiful” with help from Kaleem Taylor, while keeping special emphasis on the song’s wordplay in true Hip-Hop fashion.

Enjoy “Beautiful” and look out for Cynikal’s forthcoming EP ‘Toby’ which is scheduled to be released later in the Summer!
