Nicki Minaj Protege Parker Drops New Song, ‘So Beautiful’


As Nicki Minaj first got a leg up in the music industry by signing to Lil Wayne‘s Young Money record label imprint, it seems only right that she use her current level of fame to introduce new artists to her fans.

London native Parker Ighile (who records as Parker) is the first of those artists to be signed to Minaj’s new imprint.

Devoted Barbs will recognize Parker from his hook on ‘Hell Yeah,’ a song he produced that appears on Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up’ album.

Now Parker is back with his first track since signing with the Young Money emcee, the slow-burning ballad, ‘So Beautiful.’ While dreamier than most Minaj tracks, Parker makes a sly nod to his benefactor with the line, “When I beez in the trap / You’re the girl I’m missing.”

Will signing to a major artist’s label imprint turn Parker into a star of Minaj-like proportions, or will he forever toil in Nicki’s shadow? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
