Ryan Leslie Finds The Finer Things In His New Video For "Designer Pain"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Ryan Leslie is making big moves as of late and we couldn't possibly be more pleased. After sharing a behind-the-scenes video showcasing the studio creation of his new single "Mill'ns," the crooner-that-can-rap-like-hell has returned with another clip. This time, Leslie is indulging himself in some of the finer things in life for the official video for "Designer Pain," which will appear on his upcoming LP MZRT, which is set to drop on July 4th. Sandwiched between gorgeous soaring aerial shots (looks like Leslie's got himself a drone), we watch as he sings along the seashore, plays piano in a beautiful empty hall and eventually collides with a beautiful Venetian waitress, with whom he decides to retire to an airy apartment suite filled with posh furniture and room service.

In a tweet, Ryan Leslie encouraged fans to watch the clip and then text him--personally-- in order to receive an early pre-order code for MZRT. We've already saved him to our contacts' Favorites list.
