Bonjour Yellamaraju, J'aime l'écouter is correct. There are a few French verbs where the preposition required in English is in a sense built into the French verb. Écouter means "to listen to," regarder means "to look at," chercher means "to look for," etc. So even though we need a preposition in English, we don't in French.
