Lloyd - King Of Hearts Lyrics
- Release date: July 2011 -
King of Hearts is the fourth studio album by American R&B recording artist Lloyd, released July 5, 2011, on Zone 4. It is Lloyd's first release after leaving his former record label The Inc. Records in 2009.
Recording sessions for the album took place at Doppler Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, No Excuses Studio in Santa Monica, California, Record Plant in Hollywood, California, and Setai Recording Studios in Miami, Florida. Polow da Don served as the album's executive producer and produced or co-produced all of its songs, managing sessions with background singers and hord and string sections. In an interview for Billboard, he said of his role on the album, "I promised Lloyd my full dedication. So I stopped doing a lot of work with a lot of other artists. I usually have seven songs on the radio at the same time, but I shut down shop to focus on his album". Lloyd has said of the album's music, "We've created something in the likes of what Justin Timberlake and Timbaland were able to create on 'FutureSex / LoveSounds' and Usher and Jermaine Dupri were able to create on 'Confessions'".
The album's lead single, "Lay It Down", was released on August 31, 2010. It reached number 64 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number seven on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The second single "Cupid" was released in February and peaked at number 11 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The third single is "Be the One" and it features Trey Songz and Young Jeezy.
