To be honest, I wasn't crazy about Lloyd's debut endeavor via "Southside", a duet with the credibility-questioned diva Ashanti. It wasn't horrible, but it also wasn't great by any means, despite getting reasonably sound airplay. I didn't buy the album because I wasn't truly impressed by the single from Lloyd's debut, SOUTHSIDE. I wasn't going to buy STREET LOVE, but I heard a lot of buzz surrounding it and I did like first single "You" better than "Southside". "You" was a bigger and better hit, though if it hadn't been for a great sale price, a lingering (from myself) for a new R&B album, and a hell of a lot of buzz, I probably would've passed STREET LOVE by as well. I am so glad that I came to my senses and purchased this great set of R&B which spans balladry, club-bangers, and most importantly, it is mostly Lloyd solo without the rediculous cameos from six-million different guest stars.

Skipping a completely unnecessary intro (as all of them are in my opinion), The album starts with first and acclaimed single "You", which is a strong way to start the album. The single has a "subtle aura" about it, not completely dislike the ubiquitous #1 "Let Me Love You" by Mario. It is perfect and simple at the same time and Lloyd does just enough singing to draw the audience. It isn't my favorite track from STREET LOVE nor my favorite R&B track out now, but it is strong enough to propel the underrated Lloyd to star status in my opinion. Lil' Wayne's collaboration here was probably meant to truly propel Lloyd (considering Wayne just may be the hottest MC in rap lately), but he isn't truly necessary; Lloyd holds down the track himself. "Certified", track 3, is stronger in my opinion with its electro-centric production than "You".

1. Intro

The album starts off very strongly, as Lloyds vocals glide over the Brian Cox production. The intro is basically an introduction (or re-introduction according to Lloyd) to who he is; that 'young fly flashy ni**a'. This obviously falls under the 'street' category of street love, one of the few tracks thats aimed more for the fellas than the ladies. It's a shame the track is so short, its catchiness is remarkable. Strong start. 5/5

2. You

There really isnt much else to say about this record, it speaks for itself. With the assistance of Weezy F Baby, Lloyd delivers his first number 1 hit on the billboard charts. It's success can be credited to its interpolation of Spandau Ballet's 'True', but that wouldn't be entirely true. Lloyd earned this one, creating a bonafide, intimate track for that special lady. 5/5

3. Certified

Slowing down the pace a little, Certified is another standout cut. Although it is a typical braggadocio type track, telling the ladies hes all too real, Certified is really catchy. 3rd verse has Lloyd in a more rap type delivery, which is either a hit or miss really, as his voice is much more suited to singing. A nice track to chill to regardless. 4/5

4. I Dont Mind

Although this song is quite slow also, its loud claps and booming bass is very suited to the clubs. Basically a 'make it rain' type of track, for those ladies dancing on the polls late at night to the early morning. Despite the banging beat, Lloyd doesn't really do anything vocally to make it a stand out track on the album. The typical subject matter doesnt help in this case either. Not bad, but definately one of the weaker tracks on the album. 2.5/5

This album is great! Soft grooves filled with subtle melodies which fit Lloyd's voice to a T! He never sounds out of his league. This is Hip-Hop R&B music, plain and simple but done in a style all his own. I never expected this from Lloyd but I'm pleasantly surprised. Stand out tracks are "Incredible" and "Certified." I hope this influences other R&B artists to make albums as good. Lloyd has a wonderful career ahead of him and I can't wait to see how he'll grow and mature.

I don't see Lloyd having to worry about the sophomore jinx with his second album release, Streetlove, which fits the love themes of the songs to an urban air perfectly. Lloyd newly singed to Sho'nuff records, but record still being released under former label, The INC. I decided to pick his album up after hearing much radio play from his first single, "You" feat. Lil' Wayne. I was a little skeptical about buying this album after pretty much thinking he was just a hook singer. Also, I didn't really care for his released singles from his first album, but I took a chance. After listen to it for the first time, I had come to a conclusion that my original views were proven correctly, when I didn't like it. However, after I listen to the record the second time, I started to feel that maybe I didn't give it a chance. By the third time I was hooked and was singing the chorus and not even realizing it. Although I original didn't think he was vocally strong, I do realize he does have some skills. The production and writing was pretty decent, which I think can be seen pretty easily through in the first 7 tracks. His only other collaborations on this album is the remix of "You" called "I Want You" feat. Naz and Andre 3000. Although many decent track, my personal favorites are "Certified", "Valentine", and the sampled Art of Noise's song "Moments in Love" for the song "One For Me". I would really keep and eye on him to see how further he evolves musically in his career, because I like the direction he is going in now.
