J. Cole Album Single Within A Week!

J. Cole Album Single Within A Week!

At the BET Awards nominations press conference earlier this week, Cole told Ms. Drama TV that he will release the album’s first single within a few days. “We finally married a single and we picked it, so that’s next week. There’s no more holdup,” J. Cole explained. “As of next week, you’ll see me on full-fledged promo mode.”

Declining to reveal the title of the song, Cole did give a few scarce details. “It’s summertime, it’s incredible,” he said. “It samples one of my favorite albums from my growing up experience.”

In April, feeling pressure from fans to give a release date for the long-delayed album, Cole addressed the issue. “I know my fans are frustrated with me, because I won’t give a date,” he said in an interview. “I only gave a date one time in my career last year, and I smacked myself in the face because it was so unrealistic. Now I say it’s coming soon, and it’s really true, because we’re in the final stages right now.” Source
