Ryan Leslie After Party

This week, we were joined by Ryan Leslie, one of the hottest upcoming artists at the moment. Ryan Leslie was a senior in Harvard who had a passion for music. He devoted hours of his weeks to learning music production, and developing his own musical style. He also performed on campus for various music events and became accustomed to 2-3 hours of sleep per night.

After graduating, Ryan wanted to carry on perusing his dream of becoming a huge star in the music industry. His parents tried to talk him out of hit but he was adamant on a career in music. Ryan persuaded his parents to get him a $15,000 loan, which he had promised to pay back even if it meant going back into education and getting a traditional job. For months he worked on developing his skills and writing music where he claimed to have ate and slept very little. After all this effort, he finally landed an internship with producer Younglord. Within his first week, he produced a song “Keep giving your love to me” which was later performed by Beyoncé in the Bad Boys II soundtrack.

Leslie made his return to the studio in 2006 to record a new debut album. He released a single “Diamond Girl” in December 2007 followed by a great second single “Addiction” which was released in August 2008.

He has recently announced that his 4th album release was to be in February 2013 “Black Mozart”. He has been in London this month performing at shows and joined Xclusive Touch at Aura for an after party on Monday 11th February after a performance in Hertfordshire.

Leslie wasn’t shy to give us a short but sweet performance in front of his beloved fans that made their way through the crowded Mayfair to get a glimpse of their number one artist who didn’t disappoint.
