Lloyd ‘Can’t Wait’ (To Steal Michael Jackson’s Crown)

lloyd_stripes.jpg
I know that Lloyd with all is tattoos, cornrows, baby hair and love from the teeny bopper set isn't normal SoulBounce fare, but it's already been established that he's a guilty pleasure of ours here at SBHQ. And with this new song of his that recently surfaced online, he may also be the heir apparent to Michael Jackson. Now, now, before you all start lobbing rotten eggs in my direction, listen closely to the song below before you pass judgment. Young Lloyd does have a long way to go before he's considered the king of anything music related, but on "I Can't Wait" he handily channels wide-nosed and brown-skinned MiJac on this Jazze Pha production. The track is fun with a breezy '80s vibe. I can totally picture him rocking a juicy Jheri curl and Members Only jacket if they were to make a video. Get it, shawty!

  1. Damn...I guess imitation IS the biggest flattery.

  2. you're absolutely right, Butta. the MiJac steez was most notable on "Girls Around the World" (or so i thought). but now this . . . from the production all the way to the verses and the backgrounds and the bridge . . . this is completely glitterized socks/curl is quite right Mike.
    and i like it.
    i don't know if this will be the lead single from Lloyd's upcoming project, but i'll be danged if he doesn't always finds the most monstrous track to lead off with. it looks like he's staying with that pattern.
    (and no Wayne this time around! ding ding ding . . .)

  3. I love me some Lloyd so I'm all over this....

  4. Sorry. Neyo got that "Neo-MJ" vibe on LOCK. For better or worse Neo apes not just MJ but Quincy Jones/Rod Temperton production styles. Thats the key.
    But dude could come out with a great album. We'll see.

  5. I dunno, just kinda seems like a rip off track to me, a "Rock With You" rip off track to be exact. I mean come on, the SAME EXACT chord progression from Rock With You's pre-chorus replayed and repeated throughout the whole song along with that synth whistle sound that sounds super reminiscent to that from Rock With You's instrumental break. The Mj nostalgia factor of the song are what makes it great but man talk about blatant. It's gonna take more than a lil vocal quiver at the end of every phrase to place anyone in the same ballpark as Mj from the off the wall era or any era for that matter. When and if we live to see a second coming if you will its gonna be from a young talented cat with a super fresh appeal and new honest sound, not a mimic. Groovy tune non the less. *circle slides into a side slide and moonwalk* "...and we gon' rock the boogie...

    Oh wow, I had this whole analysis typed up prior reading the comments... But then M.A, hit everything on the head. So here's my comment ->>re-read M.A. posts last post
    Classic M.A. line ->It's gonna take more than a lil vocal quiver at the end of every phrase to place anyone in the same ballpark as Mj from the off the wall era or any era for that matter.

    It's stories like this that make me wonder whether I should come by this blog anymore I mean really

  8. @stopbrownnosingtheindustry .. Don't let the doorknob hit you on your way out.

  9. I've never been able to get seriously into Gonzo, but I do enjoy his singles. This sounds waaaaaaaaay too much like Mike though. Thats kinda a turn off.
    And whoever say Ne-Yo had the MiJac vibe on lock is totally right. Almost every song the man releases sounds like something Mike did back in the day. I remember when Ne-Yo's first single off his last album came out (forgot the name). I was in the hallway when the video came on in my room and I started running and almost busted my ass trying to see the new Michael Jackson video...only to find out that it was Ne-Yo. lmao

  10. DAMMN U FINE AS HELLLLLLLL
