J. Cole surprised fans with the release of his new single ‘Procrastination (Broke)’.
The track was produced by Bvtman, who unveiled the song along with a text message from Cole, in which he notes that the song wasn’t meant to be released. He made the decision of dropping it as a “thank you” to Bvtman and “every producer out there cooking up and sharing their work with the world.”
“It’s a million artists out there right now just like me, hungry and searching every day for something to spark a word, a melody, a hook, a verse, a punchline, a way to vent, or a way to cut through,” the message said. “On a day when I couldn’t find much motivation, I was looking for anything to inspire me. Out of curiosity, I typed in ‘J. Cole type beat’ into YouTube. Yours was the first I saw. I pressed play, focused, and wrote this.”
He ended the message by writing, “This is some s— that would normally stay in the vault, but I don’t want to hold onto the music like that no more. This is for you and whoever else need to hear it. God bless bro and keep doing what you do!”
J. Cole dropped his last studio album, ‘The Off-Season’ in 2021.
