R&B Global star Ryan Reveals His Official Video For His Latest Single ‘9-1-1 (EMERGENCY)‘ From His Debut EP ‘Games We Play’
R&B star Ryan releases his Official Video for “9-1-1 (Emergency)” from his debut EP Games We Play . The music video has shot in Los Angeles, the Josh Sikkema-directed visual is set at a fire station when Ryan lays down smooth dance moves over his silky, classic vocals.
Ryan is no stranger to hard work and perseverance. From a young age, he was exposed to music, starting with his mother whose life-long dream was to become a singer. She became a teacher to have more time to focus on raising her son, but still kept the music alive within him.
He would listen to his mom’s favorites like Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson, Jodeci, and Usher, while also getting into New York City street rap. He studied battle rap, fascinated by its competitive nature, and likened it to the sports he played in school.
This all plays a part of who Ryan is today and how he creates his own music – the writing crisp like rap, but the melodies, his voice, and overall vibes are undoubtedly 90’s R&B.
His debut EP marks Ryan’s official emergence in the music industry as an artist and his signing with StormTroopers/RCA Records. The project is explain various stories and experiences with love.
Tracks like “Back Up” peer into Ryan’s upbringing, but also his cultural background as a Jamaican, African American and Puerto Rican. With releasing just two tracks prior to this project, including the popular single “Real One”, Ryan has garnered over 1.3 million streams worldwide and counting.
