One of the noteworthy success stories of 2006-07 was Lloyd's gold-certified the Inc./Universal Motown debut, "Street Love." Now the singer/songwriter is hoping to parlay gold into platinum with its follow-up, "Lessons in Love."

In addition to Lil Wayne, Lloyd reunited with several "Street" players, including Eric Hudson, Jasper Cameron & Big Reese and Usher's younger brother J-Lack, who was responsible for Lloyd's second hit off the "Street" set, "Get It Shawty." Coming onboard for the first time are Johnta Austin, Polow Da Don and Inglewood, Calif.-production newcomers Baby Boy & Superkidd, plus special guests Ludacris (on the street track "How We Do It") and Nelly ("Lose Control").

It's a more mature Lloyd on "Lessons," which incorporates truths about genuine love and relationship alongside club jams and midtempo numbers. "The general idea of the album is about encouraging young people to take time and trust love," the 22-year-old says.

"My philosophy remains the same," he continues. "This isn't rocket science. It's about feeling good and finding the groove that reps your style."
