Rumored J.Cole Predictions for Newest Album 4 Your Eyez Only

Unless you live under a rock, then you know about J. Cole’s 4th studio album 4 Your Eyez Only. What you might have not realized is how big this fire is spreading. Barley 24-hours into its release, Dec.9, rumors are already surfacing about its huge success.

According to HDD, album sells are being predicted to be between 400-500K copies just in the opening week. In comparison to Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive, which moved approximately 375K copies in its first week, Cole might be looking at a hundred grad increase this go round if all predictions become true.

Although its release has been short, it has already stirred the drama pot. Cole released the documentary Eyez which featured the tracks “False Prophets” and “Everybody Dies”. Those songs caused a commotion in the hip-hop community over veiled remarks he made about Wale and possibly Kanye West and Lil Yachty.

Like his previous album, 4 Your Eyez Only doesn’t have any features. The 10-song project contains production from Boi-1da, Frank Dukes, Cardiak, Vinylz, Childish Major, Elite, Ron Gilmore and others.

Eyez has flown up to take the #1 spot at iTunes immediately upon release, while track “Deja Vu” moved into the Top 5. The album also occupies the top two spots (in explicit and clean versions) on Apple Music’s streaming albums chart, while tracks occupy the Top 10 spots on the Top Songs leaderboard. If you still haven’t heard the album be sure to check it out here.

J. Cole Will Release His Fourth Studio Album In Eight Days

North Carolina emcee J.Cole has had scarce music appearances since his 2014 Forest Hills Drive album; and rightfully so. The album went platinum and spawned a world tour and HBO documentary of the same title. He’s been a busy man.

This morning an iTunes pre-order became available that is scripted as “The rappers highly anticipated fourth studio album” with not much more detail. The tentative title 4 Your Eyez Only is currently ten records long and appears to have no features. Fans everywhere took to Twitter to express their excitement.

There’s not much time left for the marketing frenzy that comes with announcements like this, but then again Cole has been anti-industry to say the least when it comes to his methods, even to the point of turning down shows for an undetermined hiatus of time recently.

Lock in you pre order on iTunes here.

J. Cole Takes a Break From Performing

Over the weekend, J. Cole performed at The Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens, New York. During his headlining set on day one of the festival, Cole announced, “This is my last show for a very long time.” It’s not clear why he’s taking a break, but as music fans, we can only hope it’s to work on the long-speculated joint project with Kendrick Lamar.

Check out his announcement below

Bassy Bas’ sophomore album, Too Hot To Riot, dropped this weekend! The album features Cozz, J. Cole and, on two tracks, The Hics. If you didn’t get a chance to hear Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers two of the songs, “Housewives” and “Night Job” also appear on the album.

Bas signed some copies in a NYC Best Buy. Hopefully he will sign some when he’s here in Austin for SXSW!

Yesterday, J. Cole dropped a live album, Forest Hills Drive: Live from Fayetteville, NC. Was is a coincidence that yesterday was also his birthday? Proabably not. One of the tracks was called “January 28th,” after all. Jermaine also released an HBO special earlier this month of his stop in his hometown on the 2015 summer tour, during which he performed his entire 2014 Forest Hills Drive album front to back and had some very special guests.

Today, Cole gives his fans a video for “Love Yourz.” The video features some footage from the special and the views from the shows. The song has a powerfully poignant message on its’ own, and the visual underlines it. Check it out below.
