Love Is Wicked is the debut album by Brick & Lace. It had an initial release date of August 21, 2007, then it got moved to December 4, 2007, but then was pushed back further to 2008. It was eventually[when?] released in the UK and France. The album was also released in other countries (such as Belgium) in September 2007. It has since then leaked onto the internet on various blog sites. Love Is Wicked is a mix of R&B and dance music with hip hop and reggae-dancehall elements.

Production came from Akon, as well as will.i.am, Cool & Dre, Jazze Pha and many others. The only guest appearance known at the moment,[when?] will come from Cham, who will be on the remix of the album's lead single, "Never Never". Akon has produced three songs for the album.[1] This album, when released, will earn a place in the label's history as it is also the first release on Akon's Kon Live Distribution label.
