Miguel Records Song for J. Cole’s Album

Miguel and J. Cole

J. Cole guested on Miguel’s breakout hit “All I Want Is You,” and now he’s returning the favor. The R&B crooner is adding his vocals to a new record for the Roc Nation rapper’s debut.

Fresh off releasing his first album and opening for Usher, Miguel has been keeping busy off the stage. He hopes to bang out a few tracks for J. Cole to choose from, but for now, he’s focusing on one particular record. “Actually, I’ve been working on something specifically for [J. Cole's album],” he tells Rap-Up.com. “He sent me something maybe a month ago.”

The Los Angeles native detailed what fans can expect from the tune, on which he’ll sing the chorus. “It sounds exactly like what his fans love him for—storytelling, wit, and just a really smooth flow,” he shares. “As far as what I’ve done to it, it’s really playful. The chorus reminds me of a Passion Pit song. I don’t know why. I haven’t sent it back yet. It’s more melodies than a full voice.”

If the song is anything like the collaborators’ past work on “All I Want Is You,” their supporters are in for a treat. But what will listeners call the song once it’s complete? “I think the title he sent was ‘Gina,’” reveals Miguel.

Find out if their latest collaboration makes the cut when J. Cole’s debut album arrives this spring.
