R&B crooner Lloyd returns dripping in admiration for a lover on his brand new single “Caramel.”
The singer/songwriter seduces over the slow-burner highlighted by Roger Troutman-style talkbox transmissions and sticky 808’s. Lloyd’s signature falsetto instantly captivates while he belts out the sexy hook.
“Caramel drippin’ in my bed / Yeah, you know what’s goin’ through my head,” he sings. “I’m thinkin’ ’bout leavin’ with you tonight / I’m thinkin’ ’bout wifin’ you up for life.”
Paving the way for more new music, “Caramel” precedes the release of his anxiously awaited fifth studio album Tru, the follow-up to his 2016 EP of the same name, due out August 31. Lloyd also revealed the artwork for the project, which finds him naked in the woods except for a strategically placed guitar covering his manhood.
This past weekend, Lloyd delivered a jaw-dropping performance at Essence Fest. On Saturday (July 7), EMPIRE presented Lloyd’s NOLA “Homecoming” fan meet & greet sponsored by Miller High Life and Jack Daniels. Celebrities PJ Morton, Big K.R.I.T, MAJOR. and more came out to celebrate with Lloyd. Guests were treated to a authentic New Orleans crawfish boil, a surprise performance and a platinum plaque presentation for his hit single “Tru” by EMPIRE CEO Ghazi Shami. He also introduced attendees to his beautiful new baby boy, River.
