J. Cole

While all artists appreciate their fans, J. Cole really loves them. How else can you interpret the Valentine’s Day release of the latest Born Sinner singler, other than as a present?  On second thought, maybe I’m wrong, because judging from the buzz-worthy selection, it sounds like Cole might already have a Valentine in mind.  On Power Trip, one of his strongest single selections to date, the Roc Nation emcee gets back to his vivid storytelling tip, weaving a tale of a girl who has him wrapped around her finger. Cole’s energetic, powerful flow combined with his colorful wordplay will surely be music to the ears of those who favor Cole’s older work, with a vibe reminiscent of Dreams, another tale of Cole’s obsessive love. Grammy winner Miguel Golden Gates the tune lending his silky vocals to the bridge, adding yet another element to the dense effort. Born Sinner has been pushed back to an April 30, but the buzz for the album should pick up with the release of this tune and his Truly Yours EP, featuring a handful of cuts that did not make the album.
