"Girls Around the World" is a song by American recording artist Lloyd. The song features rapper Lil Wayne and was written by Lloyd, along with Dwayne Carter, Eric Barrier, and William Griffin. The song was produced by his production team, Big Reese and Jasper Cameron, who also produced his breakthrough hit, "You", which also featured Lil Wayne. The song served as the lead single for Lloyd's third studio album Lessons in Love. "Girls Around the World" received positive to mixed reviews from critics, some of whom noted it as generic, and others named it as a top track from the album. It reached sixty-four on the Billboard Hot 100 and thirteen on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The song samples "Paid in Full" by hip hop duo Eric B. & Rakim. Lil Wayne's verse heavily reflects and interpolates Rakim's verse in "Paid in Full".
