LL Cool J Drops New Q-Tip-Produced Single “Saturday Night Special” Featuring Fat Joe & Rick Ross

In a move that marks his grand return to the music world, hip-hop legend LL Cool J just dropped his latest single, “Saturday Night Special,” featuring Fat Joe and Rick Ross. Produced by fellow hip-hop legend Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, this track heralds the arrival of his forthcoming album, The Force, which is poised to make its debut in the fall.

“Saturday Night Special” is a confluence of rhythmic mastery and collaborative genius featuring Fat Joe and Rick Ross. This collaboration is not the first for LL Cool J and Fat Joe, who previously joined forces nearly thirty years ago on “I Shot Ya” from LL Cool J’s Mr. Smith album.

The anticipation for The Force has been building since LL Cool J’s announcement on Instagram Live last week. The artist’s excitement was palpable as he shared the news of the album’s completion and the imminent release of its first single. His words, “It’s absolutely official, I’m dropping the new single from the album on June 14 next week, in seven days,” set the stage for what is expected to be a significant moment.

LL Cool J’s journey in music has been one of constant reinvention and unwavering relevance. Since his debut, he has navigated the industry’s evolving landscape with a deft touch, ensuring that his art remains impactful. His last album, Authentic, released in 2013, was a testament to his enduring presence in the scene. With the upcoming The Force, LL Cool J is not just returning; he is redefining his musical legacy.

Stay tuned for the full album release this fall, which is sure to be a highlight in the year’s musical offerings. For now, “Saturday Night Special” serves as a compelling preview of what’s to come from one of hip-hop’s most enduring figures.
