Records/Universal Motown R&B sensation Lloyd is tearing up yet another chart with his new disc, Street Love, debuting at #2 on the Billboard 200 Album Sales Chart, ringing up 145,000 units in its first week. Lloyd’s second single; “Get It Shawty” is catching fire at both radio and video, and is currently the #1 most added song at Crossover radio for the second week in a row. The video for “Get It Shawty” is in heavy rotation on MTV Hits/MTV Jams and recently entered BET’s 106 & Park countdown.

Street Love’s first single “You,” featuring Lil Wayne, exploded with an unparalleled string of #1’s in the radio and video arenas. The top-requested song was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay Chart. The song maintained the #1 spots on the Mediabase Urban Mainstream chart for 6 weeks, the Mediabase Crossover radio chart for 4 weeks, and the BDS Rhythm chart for 4 weeks, while the sizzling video for “You” held the top spot on BET’s coveted 106 & Park show for an incredible 8 weeks in a row. The video was also on MTV’s much sought after BIG 10 rotation for 6 consecutive weeks. Lloyd won over both BET & MTV audiences with recent show-stopping appearances on the network’s top-rated TRL and 106 & Park programs, respectively. Lloyd was chosen by Music Choice Television as “Fresh Crop” for the month of March.

Lloyd’s incredible reach also extends far into the digital domain, with the mesmerizing artist landing his first #1 on the iTunes R&B/Soul chart. Street Love enlists superstar producers such as Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo (one of the major forces behind Lloyd’s meteoric rise), Jazze Pha, Jasper Cameron, and Big Reese, firing off hits such as “Get It Shawty”, “Certified,” “I Don’t Mind,” “Valentine,” “Street Love”, and more.

Born in New Orleans, Lloyd moved to Atlanta at an early age, performing and recording as a young teenager. Lloyd was then drafted by Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo of The Inc. Records, who teamed him with fellow label star Ashanti for Lloyd’s debut smash single, “Southside”. Lloyd continues to work with a host of hip-hop heavy-hitters including Young Jeezy, Nas, Andre 3000, 8 Ball & MJG, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, among others.
