Ryan Leslie: “I re-visited a record called “Choose Us” with Bad Boy recording artist Nelson tonite. I had DJ ITL play it at Club Mondial in Holland when I was there, and the response was so crazy – I wanted to vibe out on it and make sure we really sewed it up and made it sound like a Bad Boy classic.”
