J. Cole’s 2013 Album ‘Born Sinner’ Is Back on the Billboard 200 Chart
Nearly five years after its release, J. Cole's 2013 album, Born Sinner has returned to the Billboard 200 Chart.
The album hit the chart in the No. 104 slot, as reported by Chart Data. It's spent a total of 102 weeks on the chart and peaked at No. 1. The album featured “Crooked Smile” with TLC, “Power Trip” featuring Miguel, and the now-cult classic “Forbidden Fruit” featuring an assist by Kendrick Lamar.
The recent re-entry on the chart is just latest news concerning J. Cole's since the release of his new album, KOD. In addition to breaking Spotify and Apple streaming records with the album, the North Carolina rapper/producer made Billboard Hot 100 history earlier this week by becoming the first artist ever to debut three titles in the top 10 in the same week, according to Billboard. Cole also earned his fifth #1 album on the Billboard 200 with KOD.
Cole recently revealed in a Twitter Q&A that he's planning to release a follow-up to KOD called The Fall Offsoon. In addition, Cole revealed that he is working on an album as his alter-ego, KiLL Edward.
He also just announced that he's launching the Dreamville Festival to take place in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 15.
