"Get It Shawty" is a song by American R&B artist Lloyd. It was released in March 2007 as the second single from his second album, Street Love (2007). Lloyd stated that he wanted to try something different with the track, to have fun and show some of his dance moves. The track was produced by James "J. Lack" Lackey, the younger brother of R&B singer Usher. Lloyd overheard the beat when he was at Usher's manager's office, and liked it so much that he begged Usher to let him have it for a song.[2] In addition to hip-hop remixes, Moto Blanco provided the official dance mix for the song. The single debuted on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at number fifty-seven on the issue dated March 24, 2007, and it peaked at number four. The following week the single debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number seventy-six[3] and it peaked at number sixteen. The song was featured in the in-game radio station The Vibe 98.8 in Grand Theft Auto IV.
