Multitalented R&B dude extraordinaire Ryan Leslie gets on some willie shit in his latest video, “5 Minute Freshen Up.”
Long recognized as one of the most talented and book-smart musicians in the game — he was prodigious at piano years before scoring a perfect 1600 on his SATs in high school, and has since learned to play several instruments — Leslie has also earned a reputation as one of the most open, regularly inviting fans to participate in life by taking them to dinner, giving away gizmos and gadgets, even allowing them in the studio while he creates his music.
The latter is exactly what he did while crafting “5 Minute Freshen Up,” as some of his luckier Twitter followers got to witness firsthand the creation of an incredibly dope song.
You may not have been able to watch him make it, but you can watch Ryan Leslie show you how fresh he is in the song’s very well-done visual.
His new album, Les Is More, is slated to drop July 4.
