LL Cool J has partnered up with Brad Paisley yet again to release a track that will be included on his upcoming album, Authentic. This time around, instead of tackling big issues like racism, “Live For You” has an easier to digest subject matter: love and relationships. Much to our surprise, Paisley’s R&B influenced crooning over the chorus of the song doesn’t sound as cheesy as you could imagine it to be.
In case if you’re a little out of the loop on this one, we dissected the artists’ prior collaboration earlier this week. “Accidental Racist,” a song that’s been met with much buzz for its ridiculous lyrics like “If you don’t judge my gold chains/I’ll forget the iron chains” and “RIP Robert E. Lee but I’ve gotta thank Abraham Lincoln for freeing me, know what I mean,” has been receiving much flack for obvious reasons.
LL’s Authentic drops on April 30. Follow the jump to stream “Live For You.”
