The fifth studio album from J. Cole, KOD, follows his critically acclaimed platinum-selling 2016 album 4 Your Eyez Only. In its first week, KOD reached 21,309 consumption in Canada, including 1,307 physical units, while its songs amassed 322 million audio streams around the world. That makes J. Cole only the third artist in history to surpass 300 million audio streams in its debut week—an achievement that’s especially remarkable considering that KOD only contains 12 songs. 


A North Carolina native, J. Cole was the first artist signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label, which released his official debut Cole World: The Sideline Story in 2011. To date, he’s received five Grammy Award nominations including Best New Artist and Best Rap Album (for 2014’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive). Arriving in December 2016, 4 Your Eyez Only debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and gained acclaim from outlets like The New York Times (who praised it as “spartan but sumptuous, emotionally acute but plain-spoken… one of the year’s most finely drawn [albums]”). 4 Your Eyez Only was J. Cole’s first release for Dreamville, the label he launched in 2007. Like each of J. Cole’s first four albums, it’s certified platinum.
