New Music: Lloyd – Tru


Oh Wow, look who’s back!!

After a much extended hiatus, R&B crooner Lloyd has finally returned for something special for our listening pleasure this Friday.  The singer-songwriter has been away from the scene for quite some time, although there have been a few leaks and random collaborations pop up, like “On Call” and “All I Need” in 2014, Lloyd hasn’t officially released his own new material since 2013’s “Twerk Off” and 2012’s ‘The Playboy Diaries‘ mixtape.

We can now gladly welcome young Lloyd back with the sexy new introspective single “Tru,” produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E League.

“I lost it all,” Lloyd says on the intro of the song as he delves into why he’s been away for so long. “But in life there’s always a chance to grow from the struggle, from the pain, from the realness. Here’s my story.”

“This is me, so please accept me for who I am / Please accept me for what I do / I’m just doing everything that I can, ’cause all I want to be is true,” he sings.

Take a listen to his confessional below, and pick it up on iTunes now!

21 R&B Videos from the 2000s To Get You Ready for Spring Love!


Ah, spring! The season where the weather is nice, the flowers start to bloom, and R&B songs reign supreme!

As the weather finally went from drab to fab in the blink of an eye, I couldn’t help but play one of my favorite songs dedicated to the spring: Stevie B’s 1988 hit-single “Spring Love”.  Now, in the midst of me bobbin’ my head while the wind blew through and hit my bad hair day chia pet hair, I realized that this is the season that is the precursor to the official choose up season (word to Eric B.). It is in the spring that you engage in the drafting to the choose up season…if you will. It is with spring that you start laying down the good talk game to secure your spot for the playoff season if you’re in the market to be traded or do the trading.

Of course though, we all know that R&B is literally the genre of love (and heartache, but we’ll save that for another list), so it was only right that we delivered a list of R&B songs/videos from the 2000s to get you ready for spring love! What better way to let the one you’re checkin’ for know that they’ve caught your eye then to play them a track from one of the best eras (I’m not here to let you debate me, so don’t try) of music ever made?

Lloyd Girl From The South

If you’ve been wondering when Lloyd was going to come back with some brand new music, we got something new for you to hear today.  Although this might be a previously unreleased record, it has been freed from the vault, and it certainly serves as a nice warmup for whatever he plans to drop next.

Video: Lloyd – Do It Again (Unreleased)


Well, this is random.

Do you remember the song “Do It Again” by Lloyd? It was released as a UK/Euro single in early 2012, which coincided with a European tour that he was doing at that time.

The Streetlove-produced uptempo sampled the classic Top Gun song “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin, and now fans can see the previously unreleased music video, which fits the same theme.

After over two and a half years the video has found it’s way online. Lloyd fights for his country and his love in the cinematic visual, shot at an airbase in the desert.
