Under this agreement, Warner/Chappell will publish Lloyd’s future compositions as well as Lloyd’s catalog of songs. In making the announcement, Chris Hicks, Senior Vice President, Urban A&R and Head of Urban Music, Warner/Chappell Music, said, “Lloyd has demonstrated his strong songwriting skills through hit singles and we are proud that he has chosen to partner with Warner/Chappell in developing his career as a songwriter.” “I’m excited about this relationship with Warner/Chappell,” said Lloyd. “Their track record of success and their experienced staff were a big draw for me.” Lloyd’s new album “Street Love,” released March 13th, debuted at #2 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart. Of the 15 songs on the album, Lloyd co-wrote eight of the songs including the first single “You,” which features fellow Warner/Chappell writer, Lil’ Wayne.
