Ryan Leslie - Maybachs & Diamonds

Posted about 4 years ago
Ryan Leslie

Though Ryan Leslie appreciates life’s finer things, he knows that a good woman is worth more than all the Maybachs & Diamonds in the world. On a new video single and standout cut off his newly-released junior set, the NextSelection head honcho lets his girl know that, as along as she’s with him, she’ll always be priority numero uno. Flowing over his own wistful electro-R&B production, R-Les highlights the many admirable qualities of the woman in question and reminisces about the myriad ups and downs they’ve experienced together, before donning his “singer” hat for a heartfelt chorus. Not satisfied with simply handling every facet of the audio, Leslie also directs the video (number six of ten in the “video album”), setting his romantic narrative amidst the glittering lights of Paris, France. Released independently this past Tuesday, Les Is More is available now for purchase via iTunes.
