Dedication To My Ex (Miss That)
by Lloyd (featuring Lil Wayne)

Album: King Of Hearts (2011)
Charted: 3 79

Songfacts®:

  • The third single from Lloyd's fourth studio album King Of Hearts finds the R&B singer in a bitter mood crooning about "a really special lady" who's changed and, "it don't feel the same no more." The song was released to rhythm/crossover radio on August 9, 2011.
  • The track features rappers Lil Wayne and Andre 3000 of Outkast, who both contribute verses denouncing Lloyd's ex that are unlikely to be played on daytime radio without some modifications.
  • "It's really daring, bold. It's dangerous. It's all the things I love about music," Lloyd told Billboard magazine of the spiteful ode to his ex. "For parents who purchase the album for their kids obviously they're going to get a big surprise with that song."

  • Kevin from Si, NyThe song is describing a very specific physilogical change in his ex...not just his ex herself changing. I think it gets lost in the radio edit.
