You're Not My Girl - Illo Remix

As most of you probably don't know, Ryan Leslie is one of my favorite pop/rnb producers out there, and i have always played his songs in my sets. Just for fun i took one of his newer joints and tried to re-create it for a more uptempo remix. I think it turned out great, and figured i'd share it with the rest of y'all.

2 versions available - Full Vocal & Dub.
