J. Cole and Janet Jackson have linked up to perform their 2015 collaborative record “No Sleeep” at Atlanta’s annual ONE Music Fest.
On Saturday (October 28), the Grammy Award-winning singer and Cole World hit the stage together at the celebratory festival.
Janet Jackson, who donned an all-Black outfit, was interacting with the crowd before she brought J. Cole on stage.
He then began to spit his verse with sheer precision.
“I go my way, you go yours/ You taste real life, I taste tours (alright)/ Sweet at first, but after a while/ Too much sugar, they say, is bad for your smile,“ J. Cole raps over the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-driven production.
Other performers at ONE Music Fest include Kendrick Lamar, Megan The Stallion, and Brent Faiyaz, to name a few.
Aside from performing at ONE Music Fest, Janet Jackson was on the road throughout the summer for her Together Again Tour.
During a June outing, she had a steamy encounter with a backup dancer on stage that left fans buzzing.
At that time, a video clip of the show surfaced online, showing Jackson tonguing down her presumably much younger dancer.
The crowd immediately roared with excitement as Jackson continued on with her sensual performance.
Likewise, the dancer, who was been identified as Dario Boatner, seemed more than pleased to be the muse of Ms. Jackson.
Meanwhile, J. Cole recently had to set the record straight on the rumored tension between himself and NBA YoungBoy.
The Dreamville leader appeared on Drake‘s newest album For All the Dogs, marking their first collaboration in a decade following 2013’s “Jodeci Freestyle.”
On the track “First Person Shooter,” Cole addresses the speculation surrounding himself and the Baton Rouge rap star, clarifying that there’s no bad blood between them and that he still wants to work with him.
“N-ggas so thirsty to put me in beef/ Dissectin’ my words and start lookin’ too deep/ I look at the tweets and start suckin’ my teeth/ I’m lettin’ it rock ’cause I love the mystique,” he raps.
His verse continues: “I still wanna get me a song with YB/ Can’t trust everything that you saw on IG/ Just know if I diss you, I made sure you know that I hit you like I’m on your caller ID.”
