LL Cool J drafts R&B veteran Monica for the soulful mid-tempo cut, "Closer," taken from his forthcoming album Authentic. In true LL fashion, the rap legend schools the youngin's while Monica pitch in with a harmonious chorus.
Did it big for a minute then you lost your vision
Skinny jeans, a wedgie in the dance rendition
Tom Cruise wouldn’t choose that mission
These cats is all hyped, that’s why I don’t listen
Due April 30, Authentic is full of features, and not just the hip-hop kind. All genres are represented, from rock, to country, to R&B/soul/funk: artists like Eddie Van Halen, Chuck D, Earth, Wind & Fire, Seal, Monica, Snoop Dogg, Charlie Wilson, and Brad paisley, just to name a few.
