2008 will indeed be an extremely busy year for multi-talented musician Ryan Leslie. Along with the release of his looong-anticipated debut album, currently set for June 17, Leslie’s best-known NextSelection signee, Cassie, is set to drop her sophomore effort (led by Official Girl), which will be followed by the release of yet another young female protégé, Krys Ivory. On her debut single, Next 2 You, the young singer covers most of the same subject matter as her labelmate; however, Ivory’s distinct advantage is a stronger set of pipes. With its soft piano production, as well as a 16-bar rap verse from R. Les, Next 2 U might soon cuddle up to your eardrums.
