Featured Artist: Lloyd.
“TRU” is one of the realest songs of the year (2016), which is why despite the fact that it sounds like it was made in 2011, it still got some serious radio burn. On it, Lloyd opens up like never before, as he describes the reasons why he went M.I.A. from the music industry (among other things). It’s heartfelt, and seems all the way authentic to me (Well Duh Quincy, it’s called TRU). In an August 2016 interview with Sway Calloway, Lloyd explains his hiatus through the lyrics of his song “Tru”, expressing how he lost an unborn child to an abortion and that it “left a big hole”, while also detailing other family issues.
On 6 May 2016, he released his first single in five years titled “Tru”, with the audio for the song released on YouTube 12 days later. On 23 June 2016 during an interview, Lloyd would reveal that he had signed a new distribution deal with Empire. Lloyd announced the release of his fifth studio album titled “Out My Window” on 25 October 2016. On 7th November Lloyd announced via his Instagram that he would be releasing a new EP before his album on 9th December 2016 titled “Tru”.
