Rapper J. Cole Urban, Hip Hop, R&B, Music Weekly Wrap-Up
Rapper J. Cole has thrown Promotion of his second album Born Sinner into high gear. He started the week off right by releasing the album’s second single “Crooked Smile” featuring TLC. From our assessment, it is a song about having confidence in the unique characteristics that help define you. Cole talks about this issue by using his own actual “crooked smile” smile as an example of something that once served as a source of insecurity, and later grew into a source of identity for him. We couldn’t help but be reminded of TLC’s own hit in the year 2000 called “Unpretty.” It is of course just a bit grittier though.
Cole also took to Twitter on Wednesday announcing what we considered to be an aggressive preview stream sharing plan that was pushed simultaneously in different regions around the globe. To check out all the specifics on that, plus the songs themselves, click here.
