J. Cole to Open for Rihanna’s ‘LOUD’ Tour

Rihanna and J. Cole

The Roc will be in the building at Rihanna’s “LOUD” tour. J. Cole has been added as an opening act for the singer’s upcoming North American trek.

The pop princess made the announcement on Twitter. “J.Cole will be joining me to hit the road in N.America and Canada this SUMMER #LOUDtour,” she tweeted to her 4.1 million followers.

Rihanna is managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Cole is signed to the label. The North Carolina rapper released a remix to RiRi’s raunchy hit “S&M” and shared his admiration for her in a previous interview with Rap-Up.com. “I’m a Rihanna fan. She’s really dope,” he said.

The Roc stars will hit the road, along with previously announced supporting act Cee Lo Green, starting June 4 in Baltimore, traveling to Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and more, before wrapping in late July.

Are you excited to see J. Cole on Rihanna’s “LOUD” tour? Let us know!

    to all the people saying this is how they are going to sell rihanna’s tickets.
    1. her ticket sales aren’t even bad, she’s close to selling out alot of places
    2. clearly he’s not being added on just to help ticket sales, since rihanna is 4284230948x more well known than he is. he’s being added to extend his fanbase because it is a tour that alot of people are already going to

    Love J. Cole but I’m not the biggest Rih fan so I’m not trying to waste money for the Loud Tour just to see J. :(

    J.Cole is a beast but he cant help her sell tickets…..she needs some stage presence.

  22. Reasonable Voice

    He wasn’t added to help her ticket sales, he isnt even well known.

    I’m over Roc Nation shoving this boring flop down our throats. And i mean J.Cole, not RiRi.

    @The Prophet Blog, I don’t see Roc Nation even promoting him that well, so I don’t get what you mean by “down our throats.”

    Are U Stupid ? Reply:

    If you knew and listen J.Cole you would be fan of his. This is going build his fan base and give him a chance to show people who he is. She said it her self she want him on her tour and Cole released a remix to R&B superstar Rihanna’s third single, S&M, off of her fifth studio album, Loud.J. Cole is currently promoting his next project under the Roc Nation’s brand. He is one of the most underrrated rapper and he can actually rap.

    I like Rihannas song but I saw her live once and it was awful.. and I was dissapointed and after watching her live on tv i just realized that she isnt that good of a live performer .. so even though she makes hits im not surprised she struggles to sell out shows.

    J.Cole will def help I think. I fuckin love him but still wont waste $ on the Loud Tour .. damn shame

    [Reply]

  26. wtf

    lol at people thinking j cole is bigger than rihanna. He has no hits. Let’s see what hapens when the album drops and m not even a rihanna fan ppl just kill me with da hating making delusional statements.
    obviously this was set up to help j cole not rihanna and he probably wont see much from the sells. Gotta start somewhere.

    OMG!!! Pple are RIHdiculously stupid!! Are u kidding me?? Joe Cole helping Rihanna’s tickets sell??? That shows how dumb u lessers are!!!, who knows Joe Cole?? Very few pple know his songs most pple just had to go check out his songs wen they heard he was touring wid Rihanna,its more like RiRi is giving Joe Cole a lift for his career…I like him tho but I definitely won’t pay to see him on stage EXCEPT in this case where I’ll have to buy the ticket becos of Rihanna! Can’t stop laffing at someone being foolish enuf to even think Cole was added to make Ri’s tickets sell wen dude has just a handful of fans! *haters will always remain less and stupid wid no sense of reasoning*

    @Prettiedove,
    i might take what you had to say seriously if you knew how to fucking spell. *followers will always remain stupid under the influence of ignorance*

    Maybe if you listen to J.Cole you will learn to appreciate real music..but i can tell “oh na na” is the smartest term in your vocabulary. good for you

    J.Cole need to drop the album because I cant wait any longer.

    [Reply]

  30. FAN

    I want to hear and see his new album because he a true real rapper and their not a lot of people you can said that about.I also feel his mixtapes are good enough to be a album. Also nowadays a lot of rappers are putting out mixtapes before their first album so the fans will know what to expect. I think J.Cole need to do more features and put out singles that need to be drop before he put out his 1st album.

  31. The Truth

    J.Cole is the Truth. He raps about real stuff and life. He does not rap about smoking weed ,how many girls he did and money.

  32. mavvericks66

    I was Not going pay money to see Rhi pose on stage, but I’m damn sure buying four tickets to see J Cole open for her.. so Rhi will get dollars from a J Cole fan… point proven. :-/
