J. Cole surprises his fans with an album update on Summer Walker’s new project, “CLEAR 2: SOFT LIFE EP.” Fans have been waiting for the artist’s highly anticipated release of “The Fall Off” for a while. So, J. Cole gives an album update on the first song of Walker’s EP “To Summer, From Cole (Audio Hug).”
“To Summer, From Cole (Audio Hug)” Breakdown
The song is a bop and has been on repeat since I first played it. Cole’s exact lyrics about his upcoming album are, “The b****es that’s hatin’, they sit around waitin’ for you to fall off, like the album I’m makin’.”
It was a nice play on words, as usual from the emcee, and great news for J. Cole’s fans. Plus, great news for the Hip-Hop industry as the artist is known to be one of the greats, and it is also the 50th anniversary of the genre this year.
The Cole’s feature on Walker’s record was a very emotional letter written to the Atlanta native, which also seemed to be long overdue based on J. Cole’s first line: “Thank you for wantin’ a verse from me. Apologies for the wait…”
The Emotional Journey Of Fatherhood
Cole’s note of admiration for Summer Walker is raw and beautiful. He commends Summer for getting through the struggles of life while being a mom: from dudes who have done her wrong to the family who has done the same.
J. Cole reflects on his own journey through fatherhood and how he can’t stop crying since having kids. The North Carolina native also mentions support for R&B girlies SZA and Ari Lennox. The “Crooked Smile” rapper then concludes his verse, saying, “You ever need somethin’ from me, don’t hesitate, please. Just hit me, and I’ll be around.”
Summer Walker’s Soft Girl Era
Summer Walker’s EP definitely highlights her soft girl period in life. The album cover completely sets the tone as she is pregnant in all white, also cradling her growing baby bump.
