When the discussion of most slept on cds released in recent years arises, “Street Love” always pops into my mind. This is one cd that can be listened to from beginning to end with no skipping. When the family is going on a road trip, this is one cd that has been requested multiple times. “Street Love” also makes a great house party soundtrack. It’s a fun, age appropriate ride through modern r&b.

The cd includes excellent production by James “J Lack” Lackey, aka Usher’s younger brother on the track “Hazel” and the dance hit “Get It Shawty”.

Get It Shawty

“Player’s Prayer” is one of my favorite tracks off the album. If you need to grovel, this is your track. Ad-lib the lyrics to fit your personal situation as necessary as Lloyd sings, “I was just playing with those girls, I was gon’ get right back”.

The title track is a mid tempo groove that would have served well as a single. “Take You Home” captures the overall vibe of the album- adult, playful and fun. “One For Me” will sound familiar to you, in that it samples Art of Noise’s “Moments in Love”.

The biggest hit from “Street Love” is “You” and its accompanying remix, both of which famously sample Spandau Ballet’s “True”.

“Street Love” delivers 15 full tracks (17 if you get the deluxe version), so you definitely get your money’s worth. “Street Love” is available from Amazon.com in both its 15-track version and 17-track version.
