AllMusic Review by

On 2009's aptly named Transition, R&B producer, singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Harvard graduate Ryan Leslie offered up "a collection of songs inspired by a summer of secret love" that effortlessly detailed the highs and lows of a new relationship, and presented them in real time. Written and produced by Leslie, Les Is More, the 2012 follow-up to the Grammy-nominated Transition, switches things up a bit by planting its feet firmly in the rap world, allowing room for high-profile guests like Kanye West and Fabolous, the latter of whom lends his talents to a remix of the album's first single, "Beautiful Lie."
