LL Cool J has thoroughly cemented his status as a rap icon. Later this month, the veteran MC will release his 13th full-length album, Authentic, which boasts a host of star-studded features. Take the song "Not Leaving You Tonight," for example. LL recruited buzzworthy indie-soul-pop band Fitz & The Tantrums and guitar legend Eddie Van Halen to help out on a track. The result is one heck of a catchy hook.
MetroLyrics has the official premiere of the "Not Leaving You Tonight" lyric video, which you can watch exclusively below. In the clip, LL hangs out in a variety of New York City hotspots, from Times Square to the Empire State Building. Watch the lyric video below and let us know what you think in the comments:
