J. Cole Delivers TLC-Assisted Song ‘Crooked Smile’
J. Cole’s sophomore album, “Born Sinner,” is one of the most anticipated album releases of this summer. Before the effort arrives later this month, the North Carolina rapper releases a new track from the effort, which features the lauded R&B stars of TLC.
T-Boz and Chilli show up for “Crooked Smile,” a piano-driven, head-nodding banger centered on Cole’s self-love raps.
“We ain’t picture perfect but we worth the picture still/ I got smart, I got rich and I got bitches still/ And they all look like my eyebrows, thick as hell,” the Roc Nation rapper rhymes.
He advises women to embrace what they see in the mirror rather than fixing what “god already put his paintbrush on.”
TLC offer the track’s hook. “On my way down, like the sun, you know I’ll find my way down,” they sing.
“Born Sinner” arrives June 18.
