Ryan Leslie - "Ups & Downs" (Les Is More Tour Version) Music Video

 

Video After The Jump

 

Ryan Leslie releases a new music video for "Ups & Downs" off of his latest album Les Is More.

 

"I only have the resources that my fans give me. The people that are actually at the concerts - whatever they pay - that's the biggest show I can do. So if they really want to see me in the stadium, with all the production and the screens and the lights and everything I have in my mind, I need a lot more people. I have these people, but we need to grow more, so I need all of these people to tell all their friends: 'man, I went to the Ryan Leslie concert...it was awesome!' "

 

 

You can purchase the album now from iTunes.

UPS & DOWNS (R. Leslie)

VERSE 1
I wish I could change the minds that decided
That I shouldn't be knighted as a modern day Prince
It only makes sense, playing every instrument
All the money I spent - doing shows with the band
Everybody was saying that I
Should have kept the show money put it in my pocket
But I wanted to show you the way I really rock it
That real music, that real emotion
Them 80's synths - that Billy Ocean
There'll be sad songs, maybe they make you cry
Maybe they give you a reason why you should date a guy
Or maybe a reason why you should break it off
Or maybe the moment when you should take it off
Girl, girl - I'll do it, I'll do it
That kissing, that French,
I'm fluent, I'm fluent
I got your mind open on that music, that music
Lovin' the way you movin' when we doin' what we doin' now!

HOOK
Up, down, round and round
I can work your body thru all your ups & downs
I'll show you how
We can make it last thru all our ups & downs
Yea - you don't even know
I'ma make your body feel all those ups & downs
Good, good, baby
'Cause ain't no way to get around ups & downs

VERSE 2
Late nights, no sleep
If I ain't on my hustle then I won't eat
Dreamin' big, just wanna live good
Do it for the homies in my old hood
Music banging thru the windows they ain't call the cops
Showed up at the Virgin when my album dropped
I do it for my Sister, for my Mom and Pop
I used to be homeless behind a barber shop
I wrote some sad songs, maybe they made you cry
Maybe they gave you a reason why you should date a guy
Or maybe the reason why you should break it off
Or maybe the moment when you should take it off
Girl, girl - I'll do it, I'll do it
That kissing, that French,
I'm fluent, I'm fluent
If I don't take you with me then I'm ruined, I'm ruined
Lovin' the way you movin' when we doin' what we doin' right!

HOOK
Up, down, round and round
I can work your body thru all your ups & downs
I'll show you how
We can make it last thru all our ups & downs
Yea - you don't even know
I'ma make your body feel all those ups & downs
Good, good, baby
'Cause ain't no way to get around ups & downs

BRIDGE
And I swear that I'ma hold you down
(I'll do it thru the ups & downs)
And when your world is spinning round and round
(I'll do it thru the ups & downs)
And when you feel like you're about to drown
(I'll do it thru the ups & downs)
I'll do it thru the ups & downs, downs
