Last month, we published a list comprising artists we’d like to see turn things up for the remainder of the year. One of the artists on the list is Issue 1 Trybe alum, Minz, and the singer seems to agree as he just put out his first single of the year, “Beautiful”. Regardless if our list served as a catalyst for Minz’s new song, the important thing is that it’s a befitting return to form for the singer. Similar to the other records in his catalogue, “Beautiful” is planted in the romantic territories.
Singing, “So many many fine girl dey, but you you standout my girl”, Minz delivers a charming appreciation of his love interest’s beauty, as well as reassuring her of his commitment. Accentuating the preppy melodies personifying his affection, Minz mid-tempo bounce drums, leisurely piano chords and intermittent horn riffs, to make for a certified bop primed to slip into radio rotation and summer playlists. Highlighting the song’s unabashed dedication to the beauty of dark skins, the recently released video Machine Sef directs shows Minz performing at a location somewhere in a desert, with an all-woman supporting band. There are also candid shots of beautiful models, male and female, spliced in to embellish the song’s pro-Black aesthetic.
