LL Cool J’s ‘Authentic’ Tracklist: A Nostalgia-Fest With Snoop Dogg, Monica, Seal & Eddie Van Halen

LL Cool J has unveiled the album artwork and tracklist for Authentic, out April 30. And in keeping with the nostalgic Kings of the Mic tour, apparently by “authentic” LL means “throwback.” The album is loaded with old school guest spots including: Snoop Dogg, Chuck D, Earth, Wind & Fire, Seal, Monica and freaking Eddie Van Halen. One of the few new school guests, Fitz and The Tantrums, even sounds old school. So the cameos may be all over the place, but there seems to be a unified theme here. Oh, and also Brad Paisley is on a song. It’s wild.

It’s worth noting that only one song title (the opener) isn’t followed by “featuring,” and there’s no sign of LL’s new tracks “Ratchet” and “Take It.” Head below for the full tracklist.

1. Bath Salt 2. Not Leaving You Tonight featuring Fitz and the Tantrums & Eddie Van Halen 3. New Love featuring Charlie Wilson 4. We Came To Party featuring Snoop Dogg & Fatman Scoop 5. Give Me Love featuring Seal 6. Something About You (Love the World) featuring Charlie Wilson, Melody Thornton & Earth, Wind & Fire 7.
