Looks like it is not that difficult for Lloyd to once more generate hype in R&B music circuit as he did before through his first LP. Good sign of it has already been seen from his smooth appearance in performing single "You" with Lil Wayne on "106 & Park" on February 7, 2007, marking an early indication of another success he is about to face when his next album finally sees the light on March 13. And it could be even greater, judging from his determination to make the most of his time in the spotlight with the record. "For me, I feel like a player," he has said. "I just want to kind of spark some kind of energy in the building."

An exceptional talent with a hugely charismatic personality, Lloyd was born Lloyd Harlin Polite Jr. on January 3, 1986 in New Orleans, Louisiana to Lloyd Polite Sr. and Robin Polite. Following the death of his father when he was just two years old, his mother afterwards moved the family to Atlanta, Georgia where the boy nurtured his knack in singing to then get discovered by Klymaxx's Joyce Irby. Noticing his potentiality, she eagerly made him in 1996 a member of preteen music act N-Toon that later managed to earn a recording contract under DreamWorks Records.
