In what looks like a battle of the album release date, J. Cole is rumoured to have moved his Born Sinner release up by a week, which coincides with Kanye West’s new album scheduled to drop on June 18.
A source close to the rapper told THR that Cole has changed his release date to one week earlier than previously announced. Adding that Jay-Z’s protégé wants to compete with Kanye West’s next album which is set to be released around the same time, the source said: “J. has been working nonstop to put out his album a week earlier—living in the studio, bringing in full orchestras and a choir.”
Will be interesting to see how the two albums will battle it out in terms of album sales and the charts, should they both be released the same week.
