Cole World all week? Jermaine gifted fans with Yours Truly three days ago, sharing a few tracks that wouldn’t make his sophomore album Born Sinner, and just in time for Valentine’s Day he returns with an official single.
“Power Trip,” which features R&B darling Miguel finds the Roc Nation rapper waxing poetic about his ‘longest crush ever’ over a beat that he crafted himself. “I’ve always wanted to use my voice to shift culture, even if just a millimeter,” he says of the new release. This song is one of my strongest to date and I look forward to hearing fans reactions.”
And, he’s just as enthusiastic about the rest of the album. “I don’t think it’s gonna be hard to top my first album. I don’t think that’s gonna be tough,” he told MTV News of Born Sinner. “I think I got that.”
What makes him so sure? “Freedom, just [having] no pressure,” he said. “As soon as my first album dropped, all of this weight was off me and everything was flowing out and that lasted a long time, months and months. So just the freedom of not having to please the label, the machine, that was very inspiring.”
