Lloyd releases new single, "LAY IT DOWN"! Debut single from KING OF HEARTS album! Listen now!


Since signing with Zone 4/Interscope back in March, Lloyd has been busy prepping his 4th studio album, which he recently announced via twitter (@lloyd_yg) will be titled ‘King of Hearts’. After working with a talented pool of producers and writers including Jim Jonsin, Rico Love, The Runners, Ester Dean, and Bruno Mars, to name a few, the 24 year old R&B singer releases his debut single, “Lay It Down”, produced by Awesome Jones (aka Polow Da Don). The track samples the Patti Labelle classic “Love, Need and Want You”, and will lead the release of King of Hearts which is due out first quarter 2011.

Acclaimed songwriter/producer Polow Da Don had this to say of his work with Lloyd, “Real music, real singing, classic.” Lloyd offered his thoughts on his new situation and single, "It feels good to start fresh with Polow and Interscope, making music is fun again. We took my sound to another level with "Lay It Down". It's a true R&B sound that's missing from music right now."

  3. i like it, it sounds realy good, and i also start crying when i heard it the first time, than i heard it a secon and a third time, and it sounds different than your last songs.i like it, no questions, but what i miss a little bit is the soft sound of your voice, cause your singing is really different on that joint...
    what i love the most ist the melody in the beginning of the song, and the end, cause i like the voice on the end,cause there it sounds softer...but dont get me wrong i like it, i love your music, i love your voice and i am looking forward for your new album!! i wish you will shine like a star, as you deserve since a long time...but i believe in that, cause your talented and your music is pure (thank you for not putting "house/elctro sound" in it)....thank you for good music,thank you for blessing me with a voice like an angel.thank you Lloyd! love you...all the best wishes from germany, Hanni ;))

  4. I love you and I love the song. I do feel it is a little different. I love your soft voice. This is an emotional song, but I believe it may need a touch of softness added to it. Your voice is unique. You're not like the other artist that's the best part of your unique sound. The lyrics and the passion is there. It's missing {you}. I feel that if you love a person you will be honest and I have heard every song you made! This song went hard, but your voice is too heavy some lightness needs to be within your voice on this song. It is hot and has potential with a little more of the "Lloyd Flavor." Please don't take this wrong. I love you and I am a TRUE fan. I love this song if it will make it or not. Your the professional not me. Feel that this is not you...vocally this is not young lloyd.

  11. Your voice sounds unrecognizable on the track. That's a good thing because you put your, drawers, soul, sweat, and emotions into the song. YG IS ETERNAL BABY! :D

  12. Now this track is that FIRE right there! Lloyd working hard in the Lab has definitely paid off now this is the type of music I've known you to produce. This is all you boo..LMAO! I love how you mixed the ole skool wit new skool. This track is a classic! I only heard it once and it's already my favorite song.It reminds me of the that ole skool love and makes me start reminiscing. This is definitely a joint to pop in the cd deck in the car and take a stroll on when you need to clear ya mind. You have molded your vision into a true masterpiece. Congrats and keep up the good work!

  17. I like it, and it is an awesome song but I think some parts are just a little too hard... Especially the start Was just a very sudden LOUD vocal. And in some ways it almost doesn't sound like you, and it's way different than your previous work. Gotta admit the end sounds like you're yodeling... I think you could've gone a little softer on it, and coulda done without the almost yodeling, but past those... it's great :) I'm curious about the rest of the album now...

  18. Wow from the first listen i was taken aback it sounded so different from what you have usually done, but the song sounds brilliant i like how u put ur own spin on tracks, the melody is beautiful im really psyched for the album the games missing true RnB like this, i cant wait for you to prove all the haters wrong! Your army of YG fans are behind 100% Go Lloyd we love you! p.s the yodelling made me lol love it hehe

  19. Fans will love any song that their artist creates.but an honest true fan will keep it real. I am a huge Lloyd fan and I think change is good. You are known for your soft, high, and unique sound that no one has! I feel that the song was lacking that softness that you usually deliver. I'm not hating just keepin' it real. I don't believe in kissing up because I would hate to see you fall cuz' ppl are'nt being honest...every1 has their own opinions...I feel a lil disappointed, but will continue 2 support you! If you're happy with the outcome of the song then I am too!

  20. I am a fan of you Lloyd but this song SHOULD NOT BE A SINGLE. I appreciate the different direction that you took but I don't hear this playing on the radio...at all. Love you!

  21. @zara_chioma, You definitely kept it real all the way. Sometimes the truth does hurt. I agree with some a real fan would'nt lie! This could be a single if it was re-recorded Lloyd style. The sound is a bit harsh and unbareable. I'm shocked that some are satisfied with the fiinishing of this track. Guess it's a matter of playin' the song over and over maybe it will get to some of us who are a bit bias. I've never heard something like this 4rm Lloyd. ppl all over may lyk it just bcuz he changed and got out of his comfort zone. Love him wish him nothing but the best.

  22. I can hear it on the radio, but not long if he keeps the song like this, some of the parts were a bit too overboard, I like the fact that he went a different direction with song, I'm not talkin' about the verses he's singin', it's the adlibs that he needs 2 softens, that's all, but I'm still gonna be a fan 4 as long as i can, I don't want him 2 fall, becuz he's 2 talented 2 be underrated, but I still believe that this album should be anticipated no doubt, u just sometimes gotta go back and think of sometin' else, I feel like he can do betta than this, I feel like this is a strong enough single 2 promote 4 his album.he's definitely one of the artists that I'll keep an eye on. I like the yodelayin' at the end. If he wants 2 push this as his single, he should rerecord it 2 soften some of the parts, that's how I feel, other than that, this is a good song. if he can't rerecord it, he should think of another single, but then again, I ain't a professional, just sayin' how I feel, just keepin' it real, they say when u love somebody u'll always keep it real, that's I feel with family, friends, and artsits, and lloyd, ure one of those artists. prayin' 4 u!!, I kno u can shine just like the star u are, and I'll be buyin' ure album, regardless if u push this single out or not, becuz ure worth it. I wish nothin' but success, love, and happiness.

  25. I agree if he re-record it this will definitely be a hit! there are some parts that he should keep in, but a lot should go. He is talented...he needs to soften the song up u don't want 2 be yelling and shouting at the girl, that will scare her off lol. Lloy is my gentle and sweeter vocally. Hate me, but I will always luv lloyd.

  28. Beautiful song
    beautiful man I love you Lloyd. I actually like the song he sounds as if he's straining to sing but it's still a nice song. Not for a first single no but a good song for his album. This song sounds like something Immature would've sung in 1995!

  29. I love the old Patti melody, and the lyrics, but I'd love to hear a softer, more serenading, version of this song...

    Maybe make it a remix and call it "Lay It Down Gently" lol

    Like others I'm used to and loveeeeeeeeee your smooth crooning voice, but that's just "my" personal opinion and to each his/her own. Anywhooo Young Goldie, KEEP ON KEEPING ON, (sings)"ITS YOUR THANG, DO WHAT YOU WANNA DO!" LOL I CAN'T WAIT TO KOH DROPS so I can add it to my collection. =)

    Much Love Tricia/Trish

  33. It was bery difficult 2 embrace at 1st, but after playing it so much I understand the concept of the song and I like it. I'm always inlove with your soft voice. Can't wait for the album I just hope you don't sing too hard on all your tracks that would take your unique sound away and you would be classified as the "same" and "unoriginal" like these other artist who do the same stuff and change up their styles...luv u
