  • This track features the band Fitz & The Tantrums and Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen, who also famously made a guest appearance on Michael Jackson's "Beat It" single. LL told Radio.com about working with the iconic axeman. "I just really wanted to work with the best, work with people that I respect, people that I look up to, people that impress me, people that I believe are truly super talented... and even more talented than myself," he said. "I feel like Eddie falls in that category. Now Eddie Van Halen has officially done a hip-hop record. And I have officially worked with one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived."
