Off the heels of his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album that spawned the radio hits “Diamond Girl” and “Addiction,” Ryan Leslie, the inspired singer-songwriter returns to center stage with his sophomore solo effort titled, Transition on NextSelection/Universal Motown Records. Transition, a true summer love story from the passionate multi-instrumentalist, features 11 songs that Ryan wrote and produced. The lead single, “I Choose You,” is a ballad that differs from his previous mid-tempo hits and already has radio programmers buzzing. Other tracks on Transition include “You`re Not My Girl,” which offers up a video directed by Anthony Mandler (Beyonce, Rihanna, Ne-Yo Fergie), “Something That I Like” featuring Pusha T of the rap duo The Clipse, and “To The Top” which showcases Ryan’s signature falsetto.
In addition to putting out his own album (his second this year), Ryan has been busy in the studio handling production for R&B superstar Mary J. Blige’s upcoming album, singer songwriter Keri Hilson, pop phenom Chris Brown, Grammy-nominated vocalist Jazmine Sullivan, and rapper Fabolous, among others. Nominated for 2009`s BET Awards and the Soul Train Awards “Best New Artist,” Ryan isn`t showing any signs of slowing down for 2010.
