Audio: J. Cole x Afropop = "Can't Get Enough" ft. Trey Songz
Whoa. This treat from J. Cole dropped a few days ago, in the form of a new joint titled "Can't Get Enough," featuring Trey Songz (above). We've been fan-girls (+ boys) of J. Cole for a minute, chomping at the bit for new music off his much anticipated forthcoming debut album. However we didn't expect that he'd be sampling sounds out of West Africa. It turns out on this new track Cole sampled a song entitled "Paulette" by Balla et ses Balladins - a rarity of a find from a nearly forgotten group out of Guinea. We're lucky TIA unearthed the story behind this group from Guinea's musical golden era - check out ThisIsAfrica.com for the full scoop on Balla et ses Balladins, and listen to the original "Paulette" below.
