Fresh from being added to the bill for this year's Isle of Wight Festival and with his latest single "Take Off" recently receiving some support by BBC Radio 1, fast-rising British Hip-Hop artist and producer CYNIKAL debuts some brand new visuals for "Beautiful", a previously unreleased collaboration with rising Soul star Kaleem Taylor.

The melodic track was originally recorded back in 2012 and samples "Daughters" by Hip-Hop legend Nas. Cynikal's version 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 on the eve of Summer, especially with its nostalgic Hip-Hop bounce and wholehearted flavour, courtesy of live violin arrangements from street violinist himself Adaggio and live guitar from Matt Money.

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 vocal aid from Kaleem Taylor, while keeping emphasis on the song's wordplay in true Hip-Hop form.

Cynikal's forthcoming EP 'Toby' is scheduled to be released later in the Summer.
