Thought that Lay It Down would be laid to rest after the success of Part II (Tribute to the Legends)? Think again – not wanting fans too young to get into a Patti Labelle guest feature to feel left out, Lloyd has gone ahead and enlisted two current big-names for yet another official remix. And why not? Polow Da Don‘s synth-driven instrumental sounds just as smooth as it did the first time around, and at least one of the guest features is an unreserved hit; while I imagine there will be some debate whether the gruff Jeezy (who laces the beat with such entertainingly un-smooth lines as “First I undress her then I’m jumpin’ on the dresser.”) was the right man for the job, R. Kelly is an absolute no-brainer; delivered off-the-top, the R&B heavyweight’s “sexual freestyle” is an undeniable highlight. Still digging Lay It Down the third time around? Whichever version you prefer, you can expect plenty more R&B goodness on Lloyd’s King of Hearts LP, scheduled to hit store shelves and online retailers sometime in March.
