Rapper J. Cole has delayed the release of his second album to allow himself time to perfect his new material.
Born Sinner, the follow-up to the star's 2011 debut Cole World: The Sideline Story, was set to hit stores on 28 January (13), but it has now been pushed back.
Cole, who is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation record label, has reached out to fans to explain he needs extra time to work on his new tracks.
Speaking to PopStopTV.com, he says, "It's not going to make January 28th. It's going to be a little later than that. I needed more time to get it done. I don't even know what (fans are) going to feel. I hope they're going to love it, but I don't know if it's going to be the production or the stories."
