THE MOGUL MINUTE
WRITTEN BY @THEMOGULGIRL
Lloyd's single "Tru" is definitely one of my favorite songs of 2016. After hearing it for the first time a few months ago I instantly fell in love with the track. It was kind of ironic because a few weeks before that I was listening to "Street Love" thinking man we really need another Lloyd album. I reached out to Lloyd via Twitter to tell him how much I liked "Tru" and he tweeted back. The TRU EP released 12/9 on all music arenas including iTunes, Google Play, Tidal, and Spotify. The single "TRU" is an anthem about being true to yourself. Lloyd touches on the trouble he's had in his personal life and industry life. How he had to revamp and get a new team to keep his dream alive. He wants to be accepted for being himself and doing what he wants to do. If you've ever felt neglected or not accepted you can relate to this song. A lot of times so many downs happen that we try to hide them and high light the ups. Meanwhile we're hurting. However freeing ourselves comes from just being ourselves and letting the hurt pain and trouble out others not only can relate but can understand. He also talks about the pain of losing a baby and not understanding why. Yet he kept his relationship with the Lord and took care of his family through it all. He just wants to be true and that's all it's about. All in all the TRU EP is a sincere project from the curly head black boy named Lloyd. It features Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and 2 Chainz."Heaveny Body" featuring Rick Ross is sexy, sultry, and smooth. This is definitely going to be a ladies favorite. "Holding" featuring Lil Wayne is definitely a much needed track. Lil Wayne and Lloyd collaborated in 2007 on the chart topping song "You". So for them to link up for this steamy track is super lit. They have a chemistry that just fits perfect together. "Excited" is just like the title of the song. It's exciting . This track has an old school yet new school vibe. It definitely makes you want to dance and rock out to song. It just one of those sizzling hot songs. Lloyd turned up all the way with this one. The beat on it is super duper duper alluring ! Tru Remix featuring 2 Chainz added the hardship of not having heat , hot water, and having to leave people behind to just love life. S/o to A-Major, Jasper, Big Mike, Justice League , Ralph Cee, and Firas on the production and engineering . Okay let's all agree that we're so happy to have Lloyd back. I sure am! Now I can't wait for the full album.
