New Music: J. Cole f/ Missy Elliott – ‘Nobody’s Perfect’

J. Cole and Missy Elliott

J. Cole reflects on how his life has changed on “Nobody’s Perfect,” rapping about traveling to Barbados, partying with Jay-Z, and hanging out with chicks like Rihanna. “Remember when I used to be stressed over Diwanna/ Now a ni**a only texting, get stressed over Rihannas,” he rhymes on one of the standout cuts off his Roc Nation debut Cole World: The Sideline Story.

The elusive Missy Elliott steps back to the mic, but instead of busting out a verse, she sings the sexy hook (“Nobody’s perfect, but you’re perfect for me”).

September 27 can’t come soon enough.

  24. Triniti

    Cole posted the song title, “Nobody’s Perfect” on twitter a couple days ago. I thought he might be dropping it soon since he’s not done so with the Any Given Sundays in a while. Guess I was wrong. Sorry the album leaked, but I’ve already got mine pre-ordered.

  35. MrUnhateable

    Really? I’m not hating honest because I’m not gonna say j Cole sucks or anything but I just don’t see what y’all see. Sorry but missy really carried this song but to me, it wasn’t enough. I’ve really been disappointed from work out, to mr nice watch, and now this. =\

    @MrUnhateable, I’m guessing you haven’t heard the album yet…it leaked late last night and it’s flames

    Lioness Reply:

    @MrUnhateable, i have to agree with u…the bars were really weak and lazy…and that rihanna line was actually kind of corny…i couldve taken the beat and missy over coles verses.

    i really think that Friday Night Lights is going to be better

  36. mofan95

    Ever since the VH1 behind the music special Missy has really been making efforts to get back in the spot light!!!! Hopefully that means she will be serving up a single of her own soon!!! Good song too I like this collabo!!!

    this song is simple just HOOOOOOTTTTTT! this is what hip hop is missing.. the type of vibe this track is projecting.. wonderful colab… fits just perfect.

    Yall saying how hard Cole is but im sure yall are not going to buy his album so your opinions doesnt matter! & He will never be a Wayne or Drake so yall can cut that out! YMCMB!

    Philly Reply:

    @Royaleeeee, Yea u right! Cole actually raps about real shit. I just bought C4 and I was listening to an album full of punchlines with no cohesiveness at all. I could watch battle rap for that!
