Lloyd, who departed Irv Gotti’s The Inc. last year, joins the Interscope roster and releases the appropriately titled “Set Me Free,” featuring recently freed rapper Mystikal. The R&B singer revealed why he decided not to put out his fourth album on Young Money.
“Baby and Wayne were definitely the first people to reach out to me. I talked to them about a deal. That’s who I thought I’d end up with in my heart,” Lloyd told MTV News. “The problem is that Young Money/Cash Money is exclusive to Universal Motown. As you and I know, that’s where I did my last two albums. I wasn’t excited about going back.”
