After their first collaboration 'Accidental Racist' drew much attention, the unlikely new duo releases another duet 'Live for You'.

Just a couple of days after they released their now controversial song "Accidental Racist", the pair of and are back with a new one. Entitled "Live for You", their second collaboration was recorded for the 45-year-old rap star's forthcoming album "" set to be released on April 30.

Other artists may opt to lay low if they had gotten the same backlash that the two artists received following the release of their now infamous country-rap song, but the duo is quite confident "Live for You", which tackles a far less serious subject than the race-related issue taken up in "Accidental Racist", won't suffer any of the negative publicity that their first output has managed to get from online bashers.

In this R 'n' B ballad, the country crooner and the rapper sing about a more romantic subject as they profess love for a special lady. Paisley sings the hook R 'n' B style as he returns the favor to LL Cool J, who first rapped about being an African-American in modern-day America for the country music star's track off his album "".

"I basically brought Brad into my world," LL Cool J revealed. "It's not gimmicky; it's not some kind of song that isn't true to who I am as an artist. It's very current and fresh, in terms of who I am. But it's not gimmicky," he explained about their unlikely combination. The rapper/actor will also team up with , , and for his upcoming studio LP.
