Video: J. Cole f/ Miguel – ‘Power Trip’

J. Cole’s obsession turns deadly in the dark video for “Power Trip,” the first single off his sophomore album Born Sinner, due June 25. The Roc Nation MC puts a whole new perspective on his love song as he commits murder in the grim visuals.

The chilling clip opens with a nervous-looking Cole at the strip club, cutting to him parked outside a girl’s house as her boyfriend, Miguel, gets ready to go out. Cole and a friend are later seen driving with wood and plastic bags on top of their car. A cop pulls them over along the highway, but lets them go after finding just a shovel in their trunk.

They continue to the forest, where we discover that Cole has acted out on his murderous plans as he unloads a body from the roof. But just who was the victim?

Watch the tragic end to his love story below.
