AMP Music Minute: J. Cole Already On Second Album, Lady Gaga Performing At Grammy Noms Show And Dev Pushes Album Back
North Carolinian and Roc Nation signee Jermaine Cole, better known to his audience as [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]J. Cole[/lastfm] has not stopped the hustle train even a little bit since the release of his debut album this past September.
Cole World: The Sideline Story has spawned the hit singles “Can’t Get Enough” featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Trey Songz[/lastfm] and the Kanye-sampled track “Work Out.” He already has plans to release a third single featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Missy Elliot[/lastfm] called “Nobody’s Perfect.” You can say whatever you want about Cole but his work ethic is impeccable.
Even though his debut album has been out for just barely a month, Cole says he has plans to release his sophomore effort in the middle of next year, “June. End of June, maybe June,” he sold the interviewer tentatively.
So far the album contains songs that didn’t make the first album, “I don’t know how many, but I got songs that didn’t make the last album that are automatically going to make this one,” said Cole. If you haven’t checked out the album yet, get to it. For those that have, I think this spells good things for his next album.
