J Cole Releases Truly Yours EP

by ike

Although Miss America essentially went unnoticed, it should be noted that it was strictly used as a promo single. Not sure that buzz was actually gained from the single compared to the viral trailer, but after disappointing fans with his sophomore album, Born Sinner, suffering a pushback, Cole attempts to repair that damage with a collection of free songs.

Lets hope it does just that and the same hype for his debut album returns. Regardless, I’m pretty sure the album will be a good one!

J Cole has been working diligently in the studio, stating that he has enough material to cover four separate albums and that track selection for his Born Sinner release is proving to be much harder than he originally anticipated.

However, while we all await, impatiently might I add, the release, Cole decides to give away a collection a free songs for fans in the interim. Titled Truly Yours, the EP features five brand new tracks that won’t be featured on his new LP project. The track list is as follows:

  1. Can I Holla At Ya
  2. Crunch Time
  3. Rise Above
  4. Tears for ODB
  5. Stay

J Cole concludes by penning a letter to fans, addressing the issue of his album push back, and as most artists state in regards to new album material, it is,

hands down [his] best work yet.

Below, make sure to read the entire letter, check out the EP artwork and download the free release here. Oh, and just a heads up, J Cole urges fans to look out for the first official single dropping this week. Looks like things are starting to get cold for Cole, so born sinners make sure to grab your blankets.

As always, enjoy!

It’s time.

I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have.
Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space) .

Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, nopolish.. just a lot of my soul..

The wait is over.

Truly Yours,

Born Sinner

Truly Yours

PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
