Lloyd released his much anticipated EP on Friday (Dec. 9). The five-track project is the first time the R&B crooner has released an album since his 2011's King Of Hearts.
"I lost it all," he says on the intro. "But in life there’s always a chance to grow from the struggle, from the pain, from the realness. Here’s my story."
The EP features Lil Wayne on the track "Holding," "Rick Ross on "Heavenly Body," and 2 Chainz on the remix of the project's official single "Tru."
"It was really more of an introspective thing," he told Complex. "Although what you see on the outside is a guy who is apparently balls-to-the-wall naked in the woods near a waterfall, it’s really a moment for me to conquer all the fears that I might have had. All the inhibitions, the insecurities that usually exist in a person; to me it’s no exception. Insecurities of the body, being free in a public place."
