It seems like just yesterday that Ryan Leslie was sitting on a massive pile of breezy hits, trying to get them out to the world. Honestly, it was not actually that long ago, but even so, we're totally okay with Leslie dropping a whole other record, and even more okay with imeem providing an album stream for us. First listen through has Leslie taking an even more grown and sexy route this time around. There is a song called—get ready—"SUNDAY NIGHT" about hanging out with your significant other at home and listening to records. And how he could probably do that forever. And how that's all he wants to do. Sounds relaxing. Mainly though, this is an album of light jams that are pretty much telling us that, even when times are bad, at least we have this kinda dorky dude writing music to make us feel pretty good.
