J. Cole Gives Update On New Album
J. Cole has updated fans on his highly anticipated album, The Fall Off. During the opening night for the It’s All a Blur – Big as the What? tour, the rapper announced it’s almost ready.
“Right now, I’m at the tail-end of working on this album I’ve been working on for a long time,” said Cole in a fan video of the concert. “It’s called The Fall Off.”
This news follows Cole’s second Grammy win for Best Melodic Rap Performance for “All My Life” with Lil Durk. Cole’s first Grammy win was Best Rap Song for his feature on 21 Savage’s “A Lot,” in 2020.
J. Cole Teases The Fall Off
J. Cole had an epic feature run in 2023, which included collaborations with Drake, Lil Yachty, Lil Durk, Summer Walker, and more. In his first collaboration of 2023, he teased The Fall Off on “To Summer From Cole (Audio Hug).”
“I’m thinkin’ about ya, I heard you just had you another lil baby/ Congratulations, I hope you got through it with no complications/ I find it amazing, the way that you juggle your kids, the biz, the fame, the bitches that’s hatin’/ They sit around waiting for you to fall off like the album I’m making,” he raps.
While fans might have heard the mention of The Fall Off for the first time on “To Summer From Cole (Audio Hug),” others know that this has been a long-awaited project.
The Fall Off was originally announced in 2018 on social media and is expected to be J. Cole’s last studio album before he drops the mic for good. Before The Fall Off is to be released, Cole has a lineup of projects that will eventually lead to the last album. He’s dubbed these projects “The Fall Off Era.” In that list of projects, he has already completed and released The Off-Season, which dropped in 2021.
