J. Cole’s “Deja Vu” Is His First Top 10 Song on the Billboard Hot 100
"Deja Vu" is a track from Cole's latest full-length release, 4 Your Eyez Only. In fact, all 10 songs off the new album debuted on this week's Billboard Hot 100 chart. "Everybody Dies" and "False Prophets" also crack the list, giving Cole 12 total records in the Hot 100.
Earlier today, Billboard reported that 4 Your Eyez Only has moved 492,000 equivalent album units in its first week of sales, 363,000 of which were traditional album sales. Only Drake’s Views and Beyonce’s Lemonade had bigger opening weeks, which debuted by selling 1.04 million and 653,000 copies, respectively.
Chris Gibbons recently reviewed Eyez for XXL. In his conclusion, Gibbons writes, "4 Your Eyez Only is the kind of project that will satisfy die-hard J. Cole fans but won’t change the minds of his detractors. Those who criticize him for mundane subject matter or being 'boring' will likely have their feelings reinforced by something that sounds so similar to his previous work."
