It’s official. Cole’s 3rd album has gone Platinum. This of course is following the recently adopted SPS (sales plus streaming) model, which is now the norm. Expect streaming to make up the majority of music consumption next year.
The album released December 9th of last year, which means Cole hit platinum in only 4 months. Not too shabby.
Dreamville artist Cozz got a little attention for his Cozz & Effect project last year, which included this standout with Cole. Following the Dreamville takeover at SXSW, they’ve rolled out the video.
If you listened to J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive front to back, which should be just about everybody at this point, you’ll remember the credits at the end of Note To Self. Cole shouts out NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. for giving him some seemingly life altering advice. As we heard it many of us were thinking “yo that’s crazy, I didn’t know Cole and Dale even fucked with each other like that.”, before Cole went on to reveal he was completely bullshitting, and said that they had never even met. Well, that’s changed as the duo cover ESPN’s latest issue together. Read what Cole had to say about the shoutout, and Dale’s reaction as well after the jump.
We gave you our top mixtapes and top albums of 2014, but now it’s time to get down to the individual songs. It took us a while to agree on 25 songs, as it’s always the hardest list to make every year. We’ve compiled what we believe to be both the best/biggest songs of the year. Check out the list after the jump, and let us know why you love or hate it in the comment section.
