J.Cole Pays Tribute To Aiyana Stanley-Jones In “Crooked Smile” Video

Instead of creating visuals that truly reflect the song, J. Cole pays tribute to Aiyana Stanley-Jones in his “Crooked Smile” video, the latest single from his album Born Sinner. In 2010, 7-year-old Aiyana was shot by a white police officer when the cops raided the home of a murder suspect.

In the video, J.Cole plays a drug dealer being watched by the DEA. One night with his family takes a turn for the worst when his home is raided by cops. I won’t give the entire video away, but I will say that it definitely feels like you’re watching a movie.

J. Cole’s Emotional “Lost Ones” Video

J. Cole released a video one of his most emotional songs on his album, “Lost Ones.”  The video was shot in 2008 when all J. Cole had was a “Dollar and a Dream.” The video (and song) sheds light on what a man and women go through when dealing with an unexpected pregnancy.  The video is very emotional and I’m sure there are a lot of people that can relate to this song.   

“With just a Dollar and a Dream,  this video was shot in 2008 before I even had a record deal. 3 years later, watching it still gives me the same emotions. This is dedicated to the Lost Ones.”  – Jermaine Cole

I love this video and I am a huge fan of J. Cole! If you don’t have his album, you are missing out!!!! Cole World: The Sideline Story is available in stores and on iTunes. For all of my DMV folks, check out some footage of his performance at The Filmore Silver Spring here.

NEW MUSIC: J. Cole “Work Out” Video

Last night J. Cole released the video for his first single “Work Out” off his anticipated album Cole World: The Sideline Story which hits stores September 27th.  The song samples Kanye West‘s 2004″The New Workout Plan” and Paula Abdul’s 1988 “Straight Up.”

The video is simple;  while playing basketball he spots a woman who catches his eye.  He later meets up with her at a party.  I don’t know why, but the video quality reminds me of something we would’ve seen in the late ’90s or early ’00s. And I love it!

I can’t wait for his album to drop! If you haven’t heard any of his mix tapes, do yourself a favor and download them.

NEW MUSIC: J.Cole feat. Drake “In The Morning” Video

J. Cole has FINALLY released a video for the popular and sexy track “In The Morning” from his mixtape Friday Night Lights. I’ll admit I was very anxious to check it out because I LOVE this song! I appreciate the video because it tells a simple story of J.Cole meeting a girl, hanging out and ultimately leaving something behind.  Fortunately for us, he decided to not take the overly sexualized video approach!

The Roc Nation marketing/promotional team needs to step it up because we definitely need to see and hear more of J. Cole. He is an artist the rap game could definitely benefit from right now.

NEW MUSIC: Miguel Feat. J. Cole “All I Want Is You”

In the DMV, “All I Want Is You” is considered new music, although the song has been out in other markets for awhile now.  I heard this song the other day on my way home and all I can say is that I absolultely LOVE it! I was sitting in the car thinking to myself, “who is this? This is nice!” 

Between “Unthinkable” being played 500 times in one hour to every song off of Usher’s most recent album being played, it’s about time we hear new R&B on mainstream radio.  Along with this song by Miguel feat J. Cole, a lot of R&B singles have been released.  I’m looking forward to hearing what’s in store this fall!

What do you think of the song and video? Which R&B artist are you looking forward to hearing this fall??
