F A Feature. J. Cole Is Rolling Solo Again
Less than a week after a fourth J. Cole album was announced, fans have more information. This week’s 4 Your Eyez Only (December 9) will be a 10-track effort, as originally reported after a pre-order posted. Based on the rear album artwork insert, it appears that like 2014 Forest Hills Drive (released two years to the day before 4.Y.E.O.), there are no guests. That album was the first Rap effort in 25 years to achieve double-platinum status without guests.
The effort will be released through Dreamville/Roc Nation, and distributed by Interscope Records. This will be the first J. Cole studio album with that distinction. While Dreamville artists such as Bas, Cozz, and Omen are distributed through Interscope, the label’s founder was previously backed through Columbia/Sony Records.
The artwork and 10 tracks, as confirmed by Dreamville on social media:
For Whom the Bell Tolls
She’s Mine Pt. 1
She’s Mine Pt. 2
4 Your Eyes Only
Notably, the two songs featured in last week’s documentary, “Everybody Gotta Die” and “False Prophets (Be Like This).” Cole also omits his own name (and any others) as executive producer or other credits.
