New Music: J.Cole x Miguel “Power Trip”

power trip-cover

Produced by himself, Jermaine reunites with Miguel for the new single off his sophomore album, Born Sinner. Don’t trip, Power 105 has a rip. Says Jermaine:

“I’ve always wanted to use my voice to shift culture, even if just a millimeter. This song is one of my strongest to date and I look forward to hearing fans reactions.”

  • lone

    singin..??.?.?..?.? come on! not good… the verses be good tho.. why does that nigga sing? just like before… work out wasnt good and this is same.. expected more… singin for the loss..

  • Chronic

    Beat was cool, he is coming into his own in production. And I didnt think that the singin really takes away from the song cause he didn’t really go on format long.

  • CaM

    Cole so dope he like a younger super smoth Game..

  • @tshiamofs

    An obvious assault to the urban charts, will take time to hit hot 100 though…I am impressed!

  • PHREASHest

    Cole World! We got one!!!

  • Darrius

    So Jcole and Drake decided to swap singles this year lol. Jcole shit smooth. Its back to the drawn boards for Drizzy

  • I shoot like ROBERT HORRY

    Swing and a MISS….

    I CAN’T GET JIGGY WITH THIS SHIT!

    J.Cole is the Hip-Hop Micheal Beasley…He has the all around talent to shit on these niggas but never rise to the occasion when it’s time.

  • matrix

    Shit is Fire!! Nigg produced this?? Damn…

  • Reef

    I love the flow

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    J. Cole will speak at Harvard University’s Hip Hop Archive on Feb 26. Entitled “The Mindstate of a Winner: A Conversation with J. Cole”….Niiiiicce !

  • DMVinyourchick

    Mmmmm I can get jiggy with this shit, nice production dope lyrics, I see some growth, this is all I asked for

  • youngtoona

    the beginning was kinda slow but it picked up as it went on. still dope tho.

  • Jax

    Cole World!!

  • jrak

    Dang! Cole WORLD!!

  • mint

    lovin this track. Good job Coley

  • LuxuryRap

    Looooove

  • jonnybusiness

    Like this joint a lot way better than Work out but won’t be as big as that joint or Lotus Flower Bomb.He needed to come correct cos to me Sideline Story was up there with Canibus as the most disappointing album from a debut with that much buzz.

  • http://oppositeofopposite.wordpress.com apvjr

    got this on repeat….this is my speed

  • Skinny

    This is definitely dope plus Cole proved he don’t need a major crossover hit to sell records as long as the music is as good as this is I will buy

  • Richard

    Damn this is “lights please” 2013, such a good tune!

  • Yessir

    This song is real dope. Tooo smoooth

  • zeee

    @lone thats miguel singing dummy

  • Jav

    I usually just comment on Wale post to hate on him for being such a sell out, but this song is tooooo good. #coleworld no snuggie.

  • onenutned

    album filler…its a cool song but nothing amazing.

  • Word

    COLE FUCKING WORLD! If this shit dont make its way into the radio rotation, I dunno what will.

    I dont mind the singing/harmonizing. Kendrick did the same on a couple songs too. The production aint bad, its actually pretty good. Can anyone confirm who produced it?

    Lyrics wise, sharp as usual. After listening to Truly Yours, I knew this album wouldnt disappoint and it looks that way so far. Song should do well.

    For what its worth, this song is better than Work Out for sure. Lmao and it doesn seem like he and Drake decided to swap singles this year haha.

  • Skinny

    This song is the best single Cole ever made and it doesn’t feel reached at all congrats on this one cole

  • chillthrill

    the melody is right,,,the beat is suspect drum programming sounds young,,,,,,the flow is current,,,,content is fresh,,,,,12am 6am backs get blown,,lolol

  • priime dawg

    fresh sound

  • Cruel Thing

    Cole sounds like Hit-Boy in this song on the verses

  • The Rob

    Anyone else think Cole’s voice sounds strange/different on the first verse? Like I almost don’t recognize it as Cole.. Song is straight fire though

  • Word

    As someone else said, this song sounds great because it doesn’t sound like hes reaching with this sound. He doesn’t sound uncomfortable to me like he did on Work Out and a couple other songs off Sideline

  • whereyourseabass

    none of you know anything about how to make music.

    this song is going to explode.

    hope your mom’s basement is comfy.

  • reall

    this is 9/10… 11/10 because he choose it to be a single

  • Respect

    The Best Out

  • http://loch121.wix.com/loch Loch

    Cole on his grind.Dropped an EP out of no where and a song w/ like the hottest Rnb dude out
    Loch Drake Started from the Bottom Freestyle: http://youtu.be/TMmOpNbb2J8 via @youtube

  • the brain trust

    FINALLY! Cole releases a 1st single worthy of his talent.

    The issue with ‘Work Out’ was that it sounded like silly commercial pandering, with absolutely no substance.
    ‘Miss America’ on the other hand, had the issue of being all over the place (in terms of subject matter).

    But, THIS is really dope. Great production (wonder what the sample is), witty, honest verses & a long awaited collab with Miguel on the hook.

    I might be wrong, but this sounds like a huge hit to me.

  • CK

    brilliant. hope the video is as good. he needs bbgun back his videos

  • BlippityBloop

    I don’t like this shit cuz it aint aimed at me. This is why I didn’t buy his 1st album. Won’t be buying this one either cuz when you got a song like this, you don’t know what to expect from the project as a whole. It’s a shame cuz he’s one of my top 3 fav. artists right now

  • ECU

    Verses were great and so was the production.

    STRAIGHT FIRE

  • ski

    This is DOPEEEE!!!!! Pure fire cole….I’m impress…

  • Honestly

    COLEY FUCKIN SHIT!!!!!! THIS IS AN EVOLUTION. INDEED one his strongest to date. The reference back to the “dreams track killed. My god . This albums gonna make noise. And to top it off this is the single. I hope the PD’s heard Dat

  • jinx

    Great Comeback Cole Keep Shxting on the Industry. #BornSinner #PowerTrip #Coleworld

  • Mo

    This is the perfect single for Cole. Appeals to the mainstream crowd but it isn’t watered down unlike Work Out. Born Sinner is gonna be incredible

  • Vins

    Cant believed yall suprised he is ”singing all of a sudden”… He was already singing on his first tape The Come Up

  • Word

    @CK Cosign. He needs to borrow a page from Drake and have a private director film his videos using those high quality lenses and cameras that make the videos look better. Drakes last two videos, Started from the Bottom and HYFR, were directed by Director X. Safe to say ppl loved those videos and he may keep using that guy when hes doing something simple like that. Maybe different guys when he actually needs all the special effects like the Take Care video. But Cole should keep using BBGUN like he did on Lost Ones and Sideline Story I think.

  • BIG BIRD

    Cole Flying with this RITE HERE

  • NEED THAT

    COLE WORLD NO MORE SAID

  • Snoop

    So much better than his last flop single. THIS A FUCKING HIT!! Dope

  • CJ

    First of all it’s Miguel singing, not Cole. Honestly, Cole might be the best producer in the game. Can’t wait for this album. ColeWorld

  • 3rdRail

    He just slowed down the melody from Daft Punk “One More Time”. Hope it’s accredited…
