The Cole wide world is listening.

As the second weekend of Coachella gets closer, make the most of this massive musical madness before you reach the festival. Here are the albums and singles you need to check out on digital services and in stores this Friday:

J. COLE – KOD (iTunes)
With his first album since 4 Your Eyez Only, which topped the Billboard 200 in December 2016, the popular hip-hop performer should get his fifth #1 title next week, with a very healthy boost from streaming-equivalent units. No radio single has been announced as of yet, but its cuts should receive quite a few spins at Rhythmic and Urban radio over the weekend, as well as plenty of playlist love.
