J. Cole Is a Storyteller in ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’ Video
With visuals for 'Work Out' and 'Can't Get Enough' already making an impact with fans, J. Cole delivers his newest video for 'Daddy's Little Girl,' a track off his debut album, 'Cole World: The Sideline Story,' which drops Tuesday (Sept. 27).
In the clip, the North Carolina native serves as storyteller, delivering lyrics of a woman who once had ambitions of becoming a ballerina but followed a road to a different kind of dance. At the start, a young girl breaks out into her ballerina moves, taking center stage as she shows off her talents. Yet, the same girl, a young adult now, is working a pole as an exotic dancer, using the skills she learned on the come-up to dance provocatively for men who shower her with dollar bills.
"Her mind is on a different level," Cole raps. "Plus the teachers couldn't reach her, always been the rebel/ Hit the club, watch our boy, you're dancing with the devil/ She f---, she suck, she swallow, man, it's like a triple devil."
The woman the 26-year-old rhymes about throws back shots of alcohol to numb the pain and sheds tears as she realizes what her life has become.
Cole's debut album features collaborations with Jay-Z on the self-produced 'Mr. Nice Watch' and Missy Elliott on the '90s-inspired tune 'Nobody's Perfect.' Check The BoomBox's first listen of the effort here.
