"Sparks Will Fly" featuring Jhené Aiko

This is J. Cole's hit-making zone, and like his "Power Trip," "Sparks Will Fly" could make a few pop listeners want to know more about this mixtape-to-major rapper. Mostly, though, it does well-enough to reassure long-time fans that while he's not as inspired by the current mainstream, he will still do his best to sell out stadiums — but never his soul.
