Today marks the release of Lloyd’s ‘King of Hearts’ album.
The singer’s 4th album, and first post-The Inc. release, mostly features production from famed Hip-Hop/R&B producer Polow Da Don and guest appearances from heavy-hitters such as Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and Young Jeezy. And much like the aforementioned, the album, preceded by the top 10 R&B hit ‘Lay It Down’, sees the New Orleans native venture into played out familiar subject matter over much of the album – sex. Unlike some of the album’s co-stars (I bet the readers know his name…his name…his name), Lloyd’s vocal ability is one that is noteworthy and often overlooked.
From the bass driven, slow jam ‘Naked’ to the Andre 3000 assisted “Dedication To My Ex”, Young Goldie may tip-toe into cliche, but his delivery is far from cloned. As, to the surprise of some, to say the album is solid would be an understatement.
Alas, Lloyd may be ‘King of Hearts’, but will he be the “King of Charts”? We at That Grape Juice want to know, are you checking for the album? Have you listened to or bought the LP?
