SAINt JHN revisited his 2019 album Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs with an accompanying music video for “Ransom.” Similar to the music video for “Wedding Day,” JHN’s newest visual is a one-take shot with a stunning backdrop. The imposing silhouette of the rapper/producer flows across the visual, while his red beach shorts and multi-colored footwear create contrast against the blue tints.
Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs was originally released in August 2019 and features a total of 14 tracks. “Collection One is a guy that walked into a bar with his blue mink and there’s a girl sitting at the bar. She saw me walk in to order her a drink, paid for it and left,” SAINt JHN shared in an interview with Rare Norm. “I never introduced myself nor asked for her name. She got the impression but no information about me. Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs is where I come back to introduce myself. It’s a random night and the same girl at the bar. But I left her hoping for something and I came back to tell her a little about myself. That’s Ghetto Lenny’s Love Song.”
