J.Cole Speaks on His “Power Trip” Single

J. Cole is slowly returning to the spotlight after dropping his free EP Truly Yours and “Power Trip” that features Miguel. During NBA All-Star Weekend, Cole spoke with MTV News about the motivation behind the latest single off his sophomore effort, Born Sinner.

Cole explained that he had to choose between “Power Trip” and “bigger record,” but went with the former because it had a newer sound. He also relates his fresh direction to when Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” was released and how it was vastly different than anything on the radio during the time.
