New LP: Lloyd | Tru [Audio Stream]

Lloyd

By Jack Barnes

Grammy-nominated R&B superstar Lloyd is back with TRU LP, available everywhere today. Download or stream the album here. Upon it’s release, TRU skyrocketed to #2 on iTunes R&B chart, and reached the top 20 overall. TRU – which marks the long-awaited follow-up to the multi-platinum star’s 2016 TRU EP that garnered the RIAA certified platinum single, “TRU,” is his most personal work to date. The album reflects on living your truth, loss and letting go, as well as intimate ruminations on love and life. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.

In addition to Lloyd producing and writing the majority of the album, TRU boasts with features from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Sevyn Streeter, Khujo Goodie, Curren$y, The Spelman Women’s Choir and Lloyd’s baby boy, River.

Prior to the release of his highly anticipated album, Lloyd took the stage at Essence Festival to deliver a jaw-dropping homecoming performance alongside other acts including Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu & Jill Scott, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, and many more. Lloyd captivated the crowd with hits, such as his new single “Caramel,” “Get It Shawty” and a jazz rendition of “BedRock,” then shocked the audience with surprise guests and NOLA legends, DJ Mannie Fresh and Big KR.I.T,before ending with a powerful single, “TRU.” The platinum-certified singer/songwriter also generated early attention for TRU on outlets such as Billboard and Complex which the latter dubbed as “stunningly introspective.”

In celebration of his new album, Lloyd has teamed up with Sofar Sounds for an intimate acoustic show where lucky fans will have the chance to get up-close and personal with the curly-headed crooner at a secret location in Los Angeles. Sofar Sounds has produced exclusive performances headlined by star-studded acts including Leon Bridges, Andra Day, Bastille, Hozier and James Bay. For more information visit https://www.sofarsounds.com/cities/la/events/19969

Last week, Lloyd revealed the 11-song track list for TRU on Instagram stating that the album embodies the “most thoughtful and love-inspired music of [his] humbling life.” See the full tracklisting below.

After a five-year hiatus, Lloyd made a triumphant comeback with the 2016 single “TRU,” which addresses the artist’s absence over the years with an honest and unflinching look at what he’s been through. Not only did it amass nearly 40 million Spotify streams, but it also garnered a platinum certification from the RIAA. His ensuing TRU EP notched widespread critical acclaim from The Fader, Billboard, and many more and spawned hits such as “Heavenly Body” [feat. Rick Ross] and “Holding” [feat. Lil Wayne]. That’s just the latest chapter. Over the past decade-plus, his voice has graced countless chart-topping smashes, including “Southside”[feat. Ashanti], “You,” “Get It Shawty,” and Young Money’s “BedRock,” among others.
