J. Cole has released the visuals for his new single “Power Trip,” featuring R&B singer Miguel, from the North Carolina rapper’s highly anticipated upcoming sophomore album ‘Born Sinner.’ — due out June 25th.
Cole compares the single, which, like most of his music, he produced himself, to Justin Timberlake’s 2002 hit “Cry Me A River.”
“I get excited about that; it’s an opportunity to change things,” the 28-year-old said about producing the track. “It’s almost like the first time I heard ‘Cry Me a River,’ Justin Timberlake. The minute that came on … It hit you a certain kinda way. That was the exciting part.”
I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a new J. Cole album! He’s one of the few lyrically talented rappers out today that can tell a real story through his raps … and I just love that about him. Hurry up June 25th!
