Kanye‘s The New Workout Plan was a dope song to be sure, but you know what would be really dope? If someone came along and flipped it so that, instead of being about exercise, it was about casual sex. What’s that? That’s what it was about to begin with? Oh… actually, that explains a lot. Jokes aside, the long-awaited lead single off J. Cole‘s debut single finds the Roc Nation standard-bearer making the risque subtext of Yeezy’s single (more) overt, asking a one-night stand toWork Out for his viewing pleasure. Cole collides with frequent production partner Elite behind the boards, crafting a minimal beat prominently sampling the Roger Troutman-inspired vocoder outro to Ye’s jam (clearing which reportedly caused the delay of the single’s release). Simba keeps it casual on the mic, exercising his female appeal in flirtatious bars and quoting Paula Abdul’s Straight Up on the hook. So, readers, was this single worth the wait? Debatezaway—and keep it locked for all the latest on J. Cole’s yet-untitled Cole World: Sideline Story, yet-unscheduled

debut set for release on September 27.
