Ryan Leslie Transitions Into New LP This October

Just eight months after his critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut hit stores, has learned that rising R&B act Ryan Leslie will be dropping his sophomore LP Transition this October.

On Monday night (July 20), hundreds of New Yorkers gathered on 5th avenue at the Diesel Manhattan flagship store for a quick performance by Leslie. He warned the crowd before he started that he would only be performing three songs, “Never Gonna Break Up”, “Somethin’ That I Like” and “You’re Not My Girl,” all of which are from his new CD.

Leslie’s fans screamed in excitement waiting for him to acknowledge their notes pressed upon the glass. He left the doors of the Diesel store anticipating the crowd that would rush to him as we walked to his SUV.

R-Les is featued in the August ’09 issue of XXL, which is the first annual Hip-Hop Soul Issue. The up-and-coming crooner was picked as one of XXL‘s top 10 R&B artists to look out for in 2010. When asked how he felt about being featured in the issue, Leslie responded, “I’m really honored. “I hope that I really live up to what they say that I am.”

According to Universal, Transition is slated for release on October 13, and will feature a guest spot from Pusha T of the Clipse. The disc’s first single, “You’re Not My Girl” will hit iTunes on July 28th. – Kamaria Gboro
