Year Of The Lover (Album Version)
Label: I.G. Records, Inc./Universal Records
Lloyd's libido dominates much of his third album, and his sex talk here is either surprisingly Catholic ("Year of the Lover," "Have My Baby"), oddly clinical ("Love Making 101") or faux-nasty ("Party All Over Your Body"). The self-explanatory "Sex Education" features a female coyly purring "I'm going to make an A" and suggests that Lloyd has been spending an unhealthy amount of time with R. Kelly. It certainly works as a pastiche of pop R&B trends, and "Girls Around the World" rides tall with its blatant '80s hip-hop nostalgia and a verse from Lil Wayne.
