Ryan Leslie: Bringing Feeling Back To Music

The winner of this week's R&B release is without a doubt, hands down, my new favorite person, Ryan Leslie. Ryan is a multi-faceted, uberly talented producer, Harvard University protege Alumni, EuroStar, Credit Guru and Fashion Icon in motion. His debut self-titled CD is an instant R&B Classic. This dude is not to be messed with. In the year 2009, it is unheard of that any artist, produces, writes and arranges an entire album - we haven't since this since the days of do I dare say...Prince, in which his influence is present. Ryan immediately reminded me of Van Hunt musically, who is another genius in his own right - but the R&B edge that Ryan brings is refreshing, right on time and down right sickening. Last year his banger of single "Diamond Girl" in which I appreciate Bet-J for playing the hell out of, didn't make much of an impact (only because people sleep on real music) - but if you're a music head and were paying attention, it didn't slip through the radar. For years Ryan has produced several tracks for Beyonce, New Edition, JoJo & Danity Kane - and has remained low on the radar, which I think adds to his eclectic personality and extraordinary producing abilities. His style crosses the lines of underground hip-hop, R&B, R0ck & Funk with a bass line that always seem to standout among anything else. What makes his music so relaxing, catchy and amazing his the fact that he mixes old and new. He takes advantage of the new age technological advances of music while having a strong foundation in real, live instruments that most artists fail to incorporate in their repertoire. Lyrically Ryan is speaking to what people are feeling, musically he is giving us a relief of the T-Pain Effect, out of control mediocrily talented stars who soak up attention harder than a lush on a midnight bar binge and worst of all, the manufactured stars who have the unmitigated gall to call what they do talent. I haven't had a relief like this since Lalah's "Self Portrait" cd was released last year. This was a complete feel good CD from start to finish. Ryan Leslie, is definitely a CD to be purchased. He is an artist to be watched, for he is apart of the new change that is going on in R&B. Music is returning back to that point where it actually had a feeling...a good feeling. Remember the 90's? Standout Tracks: I-R-I-N-A, Out of The Blue, Valentine, Gibberish, Shouldn't Have To Wait.

An exceptionally shrewd producer, songwriter, performer, businessman, and self-promoter — he once hired someone to film nearly all of his activities, which were diligently edited and uploaded to YouTube — Ryan Leslie began making music as a teenager, scored a perfect 1600 on his SATs before he was old enough to drive, and graduated from Harvard at the age of 19.
