J. Cole Makes Billboard Hot 100 History With ‘KOD’
J. Cole continues his winning streak.
In addition to breaking Spotify and Apple streaming records, the North Carolina rapper/producer has made Billboard Hot 100 history by becoming the first artist ever to debut three titles in the top 10 in the same week, according to Billboard.
The three songs that debuted on the Hot 100 Top 10 are as follows: "ATM" at No. 6, "Kevin's Heart" at No. 8 and "KOD" at No. 10. Cole's latest feat pushes him past Ed Sheeran and Drake, who both were at two. With his latest album KOD, Cole also earned his fifth #1 album on the Billboard 200.
In other J. Cole news, he revealed in a Twitter Q&A that he's planning to release a follow-up to KOD called The Fall Off soon. In addition, Cole revealed that he is working on an album as his alter-ego, KiLL Edward. “Was working on the fall off,” he tweeted. “And helping kiLL edward with his album. @killhisways but he don’t tweet a lot.”
He also just announced that he's launching the Dreamville Festival to take place in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 15. As of now, no artists have been announced for the line-up but his manager and Dreamville Records president Ibrahim ‘Ib’ Hamad told the Washington Post to expect "a variety of different acts that we love or excite us."
