The wait for J. Cole‘s next studio effort, The Fall Off, will persist for the foreseeable future, but the quick-witted rapper won’t make listeners wait too long to gain a sense of what’s to come. After announcing that the release date for his forthcoming LP had yet to be set Instagram on July 21, Cole informed fans that the lead singles from the project, “The Climb Back” and “Lion King on Ice” would land on July 22.
Of note, “The Climb Back” is produced by Cole himself, and “Lion King on Ice,” by Cole, T-Minus, and Jetson. Stream the double-pack of The Fall Off previews below.

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much.
