New Music: LL Cool J f/ Monica – ‘Closer’

LL Cool J and Monica

LL Cool J gets his two-step on with his grown and sexy jam “Closer.” The 45-year-old icon raps about not compromising after 30 years in the game, while Monica lays down the soulful hook.

“LL, grown ass man/ Couldn’t give a damn if a young boy’s my fan/ Long as his mama two-step to my jam while she’s cleaning up her house, mop in her hand,” raps LL, adding, “I don’t do features or chase teenage fans.”

Due April 30, LL’s album Authentic also features Brad Paisley, Eddie Van Halen, Snoop Dogg, Charlie Wilson, Travis Barker, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Bootsy Collins.

    This is dope! That’s right. Stay in your lane and do it for the fans that’ve been rocking with you for 30 years. Monica is awesome on this as well.

    @Destined, I agree Monica sounds so pure and beautifully. I’ve been a long time fan of both of them. LL should go head and release this as a single as well as a video.

    “Take It” was a wasted opportunity for a hit, imo. But this is nice too.

    Monica’s voice is like a nice glass of wine after a hard days work. LL is always giving classic vocals. I love that they united. Great record.

    @Kristiopher, I sooo agree with you. Every time props is given to Monica, there is always a shady comment from dem starz.
    @ The Haters – For the record New Life is not a flop. New Life is pure R&B/Soul CD. Monica has never put out a flop album; it might not have done well commercially as previous albums but it’s definitely worth listening. She is genuine and true to her craft. She has never sold out R/B to fit in today’s music. The next album is going to be another BANGER!
    @ Ciara – Go listen to 2/11 and leave Monica alone.
