J. Cole Explains Why ‘Power Trip’ Was His First Single Off Born Sinner

MTV sat down with J. Cole himself this past NBA All Star Weekend to chat about his brand new single ‘Power Trip‘ off his upcoming sophomore album Born Sinner. He gives the reasoning behind picking the single and even compares it to a classic Justin Timberlake song. We’re looking forward to more from Cole in the near future.


“It sounds like nothing that is out. You know what I mean, it was between that and another record that may be a bigger record, but ‘Power Trip’ had that newer sound. They both got a new sound, but ‘Power Trip’ absolutely, you couldn’t point to any other song on the radio, and be like oh this sounds like that.” – J. Cole
