Lyfe Change is an album by Lyfe Jennings, released on April 29, 2008.[6]

"The album is called Lyfe Change because I'm changing it up a bit," explains Lyfe. "In the past I didn't work with different producers, I produced and wrote most of my albums by myself. But on this project I actually worked with different producers and a few writers."[7]

The first single off the album is called "Cops Up". It peaked at number 68 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.[8] The song was originally written for R&B duo, Luke & Q.

The second single is called "Never Never Land". It peaked at number 21 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.[8]

The third single has been released and is called "Will I Ever".

Lyfe Change debuted at number four on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 80,000 copies in its first week.[9]

In the limited edition of the CD came with a DVD featuring a Live Performance in an Ohio Prison and the "Cops Up" music video. The DVD is edited in both versions.
