LL Cool and Brad Paisley Release New Song, 'Live for You'

As if Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's "Accidental Racist" hadn't caused enough fuss this week, the duo returns with "Live for You," a new collaboration they recorded for LL Cool J's upcoming album Authentic. The new tune turns the tables on the country-rap jam, featuring Paisley crooning in R&B style between LL's loving rhymes over a free-floating beat. "Bright lights shine through / Help me to find you," the MC raps. "A room with no walls / I can't define you." Head over to LL Cool J's Soundcloud for a listen.

Authentic will be out April 30th. Both Paisley and LL Cool J have stood by "Accidental Racist," despite strong reactions to the song. Paisley said he "wouldn't change a thing" about his new album, Wheelhouse, and added, "This is a record meant to be FAR from easy listening. But fun. Like life." LL Cool J said he was "proud" of the track, calling it a "bold statement."
