For her latest project, the New Jersey singer says that she will return to her rap root by working with LL Cool J and Dr. Dre. “Dre helped me write some stuff. He wrote some stuff with me and Ludacris wrote a record for me,” Latifah says.

Latifah calls the new album (due in December) “banging” and plans to hit the road next year.
