Ryan Leslie Taps Daniela Braga for New Video, “The Wonderful Ones”
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 and loyalty 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.
Against a backdrop of luxuriously lavish shots, Leslie fawns over his woman and how they've stayed together through hard times--including poverty. And now that he's on top of the world, he's grateful to have her with him. It's a sweet-but-anthemic tune with a straightforward video depicting the singer and Braga enjoying life in their glitzy, tropical paradise.
"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.
