"Phenomenon" was the first single by LL Cool J from his seventh studio album Phenomenon. It was released on September 23, 1997 (with "Hot Hot Hot" on the B-side). It samples the song "Who Is He and What Is He To You" by Creative Source and interpolates bits of Liquid Liquid's song "Cavern". The lyrics "something like a phenomenon" and the beat are taken from the song "White Lines" by Melle Mel.
