CHART UPDATE: J. Cole’s On The Road To #1

After releasing his highly anticipated debut album, it looks like J. Cole’s “Cole World: The Sideline Story”, will debut at #1 next week on Billboard’s Top 200 with a projected 250,000 copies sold. As it has been difficult for artists to sell records in the recent past, J. Cole shows no signs of running into this issue. I can only hope that he continues to produce classics as he did on September 27th.  If he continues on this track, we may see him on a paralleled success path as his mentor and Roc Nation boss Jay-Z, but only time will tell. For more on J.Cole visit his website at www.jcolemusic.com and follow him on Twitter @jcolenc.
