J. Cole’s “Work Out” single goes Platinum | Music News

With his debut album reaching the top spot on the charts just weeks after it’s release, Roc Nation saviour J.Cole has even more to celebrate. The North Carolina rapper’s top-charting debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story hit gold not too long ago in December, and now his self-produced second single “Work Out” has just gone platinum.

Sampling Paula Abdul​’s “Straight Up” and Kanye West‘s “The New Workout Plan,” the upbeat single was met with mixed reviews when it first hit the airwaves last year, before it’s rise to platinum status.

Congratulations is definitely in order for the North Carolina rapper. It has been reported that the next single to come from the album will be “Nobody’s Perfect” featuring Missy Elliot. We will be looking forward to the visual for that one…
