Australian R&B singer Nathaniel made a huge impression in 2013 with debut single “You”. Sounding like the best track Miguel never recorded, the smooth anthem shot into the ARIA top 10 and sold double platinum. Last month I posted a preview of rising star’s new jam “You’re Beautiful”, which turns out to be better yet.
The DNA-penned and produced tune channels vintage Prince with its squiggly ’80s synths and not exactly subtle sexual innuendo. In other words, it’s pretty great. Particularly when you take into consideration the X Factor alum’s powerful pipes and spine-tingling falsetto.
A song this sensual demanded a sexy video and Nathaniel delivers. He throws a masquerade party and performs for his guests, who parade around looking beautiful. It’s fairly simple but stylish and well shot. If you’re looking for a new R&B crooner to grace your iPod, I suggest you check this out. Watch “You’re Beautiful” up top.
