J. Cole

With his new album, Born Sinner, due June 25, J. Cole is aiming to prove that his first, Cole World: The Sideline Story—which blew away expectations by debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200—wasn’t a fluke. First single “Power Trip,” featuring Miguel, has yet to really catch fire, so the pressure is building.
