1995's Mr. Smith marked the end of LL Cool J's ill-advised mid-'90s tough guy period (although he had one last hurrah with "I Shot Ya" and its star-studded remix). "Loungin'" was a sexed up song for the ladies that featured R&B duo Terri & Monica and sampled the Al B. Sure! new jack swing classic "Night and Day." It wasn't a terrible song, but LL's remix with Trackmasters and Total was a hit so big that very few people are aware of the album version's existence.
