On enchaîne ensuite sur l'un des plus beaux titres de l'album, Lay Down, qui est aussi le plus long sans qu'on y trouve à redire. I think that in order to be incredible, you have to set the bar high. Un son aussi South est inhabituel de sa part mais le résultat est réussi, alors pourquoi pas. After much delay, Ryan Leslie has released his fourth album. On retrouve ici le génie des premiers albums du producteur. Fresh off his tour, we talked to Ryan about the controversy, his new project and how his transition to becoming an independent artist has affected his business.
The track was produced by none other then the flatline king Cardiak, just another trick from the old bag. Ryan se remet même au chant sur cette deuxième partie de Bad Chicks à la structure assez originale et réussie. Music is a release and a catharsis and being on stage with the energy that you share with your audience is great. Rating: C+ Tracks We Like: Lay Down Black Mozart Track 5- Lay Down Ryan Leslie Transition Les Is More. The strongest selection the album presents is Lay Down. The first unsettling observation of this album is that Leslie has made the full conversion to rapping. Higher is especially a song that comes off as nothing but trendy, with lyrics that cover nights in the club, bottles of Rose, and the various women Leslie has made into paramours.
Vient à présent l'autre chanson qui se détache assez nettement de l'opus : Evacuation dont l'instru très soignée fait agréablement penser à l'excellent de Timbaland tout en étant fidèle au son R-Les que l'on connait. When she find out everything you told her ain't real Take it from me I got these lies on my head These wives on my bed They lying too they just don't realize what they said Just broke the heart of their man Broke the heart of their lover We playing in the shadows We do it under the cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon Said we do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon We do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon yeah Said we do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon yeah I got my hands held high, my dreams reach higher My drugs love and pain, my baby she's the supplier Please, please Have mercy on me Please, please Have mercy I got my hands held high, my dreams reach higher I know it's wrong but I give in to my desire Please, please Forgive me Please, please She fell to her knees Say the Lords prayer Sometimes we test the water to see if the Lord's there They shooting up the schools we wonder if the Lord cares Divine intervention wonder if the Lord dares Interrupt the perfect balance of good and evil the challenge To hear the cries of those behind closed doors in silence Enraged by the violence Still I turn around and drive that Ghost down Collins And I ain't looking back Am I really that callous? S'en suit le titre dévoilé ce weekend : prod. It was just 45 minutes before he was slated to perform songs for an audience from his new album, Black Mozart. The New Jersey producer has worked with Meek, Loso, Wale, Ross, Budden, Jeezy and 50, just off the top of my head. For me, I understand in order to be the best, you have to be better than the best.
On ne reviendra donc pas dessus hormis pour regretter que Fabolous y soit sous-employé alors qu'il aurait sur la moitié des autres tracks une place bien plus valorisante et à la hauteur de l'alchimie entre les deux artistes. But the song slows itself down with its overreaching metaphors and obscure references. This seems like an effort to keep his music vivacious and current, but he comes off as out of his element. Ryan Leslie is definitely one of the most musically inclined artists on the scene right now. Replete with witty lines and evocative imagery, it sounds like Leslie is attempting to set a tone that this work would be an artful, masterwork.
Bad Chicks is another example of how he oscillates from rapping to singing on one track. Full Moon ends with Leslies signature crooning and piano playing that makes you forget you spent the first half of the song listening to him rap. And while the song should be sexy, the bipolarity going from grunting a young G about to cut, God willing to singing baby, wont you carry my love child feels hollow. Cardiak, who arrived on the scene in 2008, and has yet to slow down, played a major role on the album. I know her by name and email address because she wants to have that dialogue with me. And I think that even by choosing the name of the album, it really just set an insanely high standard.
Annoncé depuis le début de l'année sans jamais voir le jour, le Black Mozart de Ryan Leslie est enfin là! For his most loyal fans, this Ryan — laughing, smiling, reflective — is a most welcome sight. In listening to this album, you have to wonder if Leslie is displaying his true artistry or if he is simply making an effort to create commercial success. I came in the game with a publishing deal, with a record deal. Black Mozart has a completely fresh feel to it. Ambitions of a king With visions of a queen spending digits on a ring My ring finger and middle finger is so close You can love and hate the ones you really owe the most A thin line when it's good you still could overdose Take too much to the head and you end up comatose I'm praying to the Father, Son and Holy Ghost Forgive me for all the sins I commit under the Full moon, full moon, full moon Said we do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon We do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon yeah Said we do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon yeah Under cover of the full moon, full moon Under cover of the full moon, full moon Said we do it under cover Said we do it under cover Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon Said we do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon Under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon yeah Do it under cover of the Full moon, full moon, full moon yeah. Après ce titre très calme, on change de registre pour un nouveau banger tout à fait décevant et sans intérêt dans sa première partie, mais qui se mue en quelque chose de beaucoup plus intéressant et qui n'a d'ailleurs plus rien à voir aux alentours de 3 minutes 30.
We were in the U. With standard beats and pedestrian lyrics, most of the album drags. I take all that in stride. Vient ensuite la chanson titre, Black Mozart, aux basses sudistes très marquées, qui confirme cette volonté de Ryan Leslie de se diriger au maximum vers le Rap. Title Writer s Producer s Length 1.
All of that information goes to them. On ne pourra pas en dire autant du suivant, Higher, un club banger répétitif et sans grande finesse, qui ne lui correspond pas. On sent un réel travail derrière cet opus et la seule chose que l'on pourra regretter - au-delà de la présence dispensable d'une ou deux tracks et de sa décision contestable de délaisser la production - est la suivante : pourquoi le génie de la prod a-t-il appelé son album Black Mozart alors que c'est le seul de sa carrière qu'il n'a pas entièrement produit? Enfin, c'est une quatrième prod de Cardiak qui clôt l'opus : Coke Cans. Its not that his clever references are unappreciated indeed, we all love-or should at least love- arugula ; its that his rhymes come off as pretentious. But at the end of the day I want to be expressive and honest and represent the experiences, places and people that inspire me.
Not to say the predecessors are boring by any means, but that brightness was disguised. They have a direct line of communication. Its not just the beats and lyrics though that seem borrowed; its even his cadence. On commence par le meilleur des sons déjà connus : avec son côté un peu épique qui pourrait presque faire penser à du Kanye West. But its only enough to tease us.
