Ryan Leslie is known for taking a break or two from penning tracks for himself and his colleagues to focus on other ventures. But it looks like two-and-a-half years since 2013s Black Mozart was long enough; the Harvard grad spent the past month at Jamaica’s Geejam Studios creating his latest single, “The Wonderful Ones.”
Set in Port Antonio, Jamaica; Leslie’s just-released video for the track features Victoria’s Secret model Daniela Braga in a story about true love conquering all.
Per usual, Ryan handled the songwriting, production and arrangement, the Washington D.C.-bred singer-songwriter lets listeners know that “The Wonderful Ones” can still be found.
“We reign in the sun/And our good times second to none/We are the ones, the ones/We are the wonderful ones,” Leslie sings.
“The Wonderful Ones” is the eighth installment of the RL’s MZRT Lifetime album, which is available to members of Ryan’s private music club have access to a new song per month for life.
