Lloyd on Being ‘Tru’ to Himself: ‘I’m Simply Picking Up Where I Left Off’


Lloyd‘s anticipated new EP Tru is due out this Friday (Dec. 9), lead by the title track, which has been climbing the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart, currently at No. 16.

But, don’t call Lloyd’s five-year absence a comeback. “I’m simply picking up where I left off,” Lloyd told Billboard. “It’s not a comeback. I’m just making up for some lost time.”

And he’s doing so with the most introspective and honest material he’s ever presented, as fans will learn on the forthcoming EP. Beyond the single and its remix featuring 2 Chainz, the EP is comprised of the tracks “Heavenly Body” featuring Rick Ross, “Holding” and “Excited.”

“I’ve never attacked the content of my life like this,” says Lloyd. “The EP and album were inspired by all kinds of biographical storylines of the past few years. And the bottom line message is that there’s nothing wrong with being who you are. I really enjoy the fact that no one is perfect or imperfect. That’s the message I’m sharing.”

Listen: Childish Gambino Releases Stunning New Album ‘Awaken, My Love!’


Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, is a true renaissance man.

Following the success of his must-see FX show Atlanta, the artist/actor returns with his must-hear third studio album, Awaken, My Love!.

In the past, Childish impressed with his rap skills, and dabbled into R&B a few times. But, on his new project he tackles his most ambitious sound yet, and it’s outstanding. Influenced by classic Soul, Funk, and Rock, the 11-track set is a bold, urgent, and life-blood giving body of work.

After a troublesome year between the loss of some of music’s greatest artists, and the political landscape, Awaken, My Love! feels to land into our lives at the perfect time.

In addition to the album, Glover released footage from his PHAROS concert in Joshua Tree, California. The 360-degree experience is available to view on iOS and Android.

He also has plans for a special virtual reality limited edition vinyl of Awaken, My Love! due sometime next year.
