Lloyd joins the fight to inspire change across the nation with a musical contribution to EMPIRE’s compilation album Voices For Change, Vol. 1. The urgent track is called “They Don’t Care,” and it was produced by Slade Da Monsta.
The R&B veteran uses “They Don’t Care” as an outlet to express his frustrations with living in America in wake of civil unrest affecting Black communities due to police brutality. It also contains an analogy of unsettling interview and news sound bites related to the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Our differences make us beautiful, not unequal. I use my voice to spread love, to inspire enlightening conversations, and, as a father, to make this world a more compassionate place for my son and daughter,” Lloyd wrote in a statement.
“They Don’t Know” is one of many records from the album, Voices For Change, Vol. 1, which is out now. It includes a song called “Real Black” by Kevin Ross, Trevor Jackson, and Jacob Latimore. It also features contributions from PJ Morton, Sammie, Rotimi and more. All of the streaming and merchandise sales from the project will be donated to the ACLU to support racial justice, voting rights and criminal law programs.
On September 26 in Atlanta, Lloyd is set to serenade the Parking Lot Concert Series (PLC) crowd. R&B colleagues Bobby V and Pleasure P also billed for the special outdoor show. Get tickets here.
