LL Cool J’s New Album “Authentic” features Eddie Van Halen, Snoop, Brad Paisley + More

LL Cool J is dropping a new album called Authentic which comes out 4/30 on Savoy Records. I think the track-list speaks for itself:


  1. “Bath Salt”
  2. “Not Leaving You Tonight” Feat. Fitz & The Tantrums with Eddie Van Halen
  3. “New Love” Feat. Charlie Wilson
  4. “We Came To Party” Feat. Snoop Dogg & Fatman Scoop
  5. “Give Me Love” Feat. Seal
  6. “Something About You” Feat. Charlie Wilson, Earth Wind & Fire and Melody Thornton
  7. “Bartender Please” Feat. Snoop Dogg, Bootsy Collins & Travis Barker
  8. “Whaddup” Feat. Chuck D, Travis Barker, Tom Morello and Z-Trip
  9. “Between The Sheetz” Feat. Mickey Shiloh
  10. “Closer” Feat. Monica
  11. “Live For You” Feat. Brad Paisley
  12. “We’re The Greatest” Feat. Eddie Van Halen & Travis Barker

While LL’s Authentic is pretty genre defying. His summer tour is as Hip Hop as it gets. LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip, will headline “The Kings Of The Mic” Tour, joined by legendary Hip-Hop artists Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul.
