Lloyd Essentials

Atlanta, Georgia's Lloyd has dominated the world of playboy R&B since his debut solo album, Southside, dropped in the mid-'00s. He's used a velvet falsetto and buttery beats to form his own slick brand of soulful pop that's on full display on the album's Ashanti-featuring title track—a smooth, breathless affair that pits pitch-perfect production against raw emotion. Elsewhere, “Lay It Down” and “Player's Prayer” are slow-jam gold, layering playful hooks over bouncing hip-hop rhythms.
