Ryan Leslie released his third studio album, Les Is More this week via NextSelection Lifestyle Group/BDG (BDG is distributed by RED Distribution, a division of SONY Music Entertainment). Les Is More is currently #1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Charts in 8 countries including U.S., Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, and Switzerland.
The album is also #1 for the day at Newbury Comics, a top independent retailer in Boston, MA. Dave Bluestein, buyer at Newbury Comics says “Ryan was kind enough to sign booklets, and on the strength of that, he was #1 for the day beating out Taylor Swift.”
The very first rap album from the Harvard-educated producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, entrepreneur and recording artist, Les Is More is “a fine demonstration of the singer’s skills – his rap skills.” [Associated Press] Ryan Leslie, “a marvel of multitasking,” [NY Times] wrote, arranged, produced and performed on Les Is More, and also directed and edited a series of music videos to accompany each record.
Leslie recently wrapped his first domestic headline tour to rave reviews including one from XXLMag.com, “last night (October 4) the musical dynamo Ryan Leslie tore down a sold out Gramercy Theatre in NYC like a rock star.” Leslie is preparing to kick off the European leg of the Les Is More world tour next week.
