Rap-Up TV: Lloyd Feels Pressure to Deliver on New Album

Lloyd returned to music this week with a new single “Lay It Down” and a new label. Rap-Up TV reunited with the R&B crooner in Hollywood to talk about his fourth album King of Hearts, due around Valentine’s Day, and signing with Polow Da Don’s Zone 4 imprint on Interscope Records.

The Southern gentleman explains why he’s keeping the album’s production in-house, the funny nickname Polow Da Don gave him, and the great expectations he’s set for himself. “I’m amongst some amazing company [on Interscope] and it’s just an incredible energy, and I feel a great weight on my shoulders to deliver,” he said.
