After a plethora of street-focused buzz singles for his Def Jam swan song, Exit 13, LL Cool J realized the roots of his success-that Ladies Love Cool James. Following up the hood love anthem and Lil' Mo collaboration, Cry, the Queens legend brings a wider audience appeal to the table, asking for the reaction of his Girl If I wanted to seriously commit to her. The combination of Trey Songz's heart-throbbing hook and Tha Bizness's production adds a hypnotic feel in the tradition of his more recent R&B hits such as Luv U Better, Hush, and Freeze. Exit 13 is currently scheduled for release on June 29.
Note: The streaming of “Girl if I” has temporarily been suspended.
