Ryan Leslie, “You’re Not My Girl” MP3

R Les channels early Mike Jack on this Off The Wall-referencing memo to his sidepiece that she can be shady and cheat on her man, but shouldn’t expect him to commit. Insert Bossip.com Puff/Cassie/R-Les love triangle speculation post here. It’s actually rather uncanny how closely he’s adhering to the Jackson blueprint (holler at Timberlake), a slight turn to classicism from his normal glossy future-funk, but then he also thinks it is his birthright to carry the torch. Too soon to tell (needs more Margiela, dance classes), but this song is a step in the right direction.

    I think that it would be tight if Ryan Leslie and Justin Timberlake/JC Chasez worked on a track together..or maybe NSYNC if they ever get back together.

    The only thing about this song channeling MJ is the glowing sidewalk squares in the video. This song is grounding HIS sound.
