    hahaha he starts singin paula abdul at the end that's some funny shit.

  • Anonymous

    I hope this isnt on the album, it doesnt have a classic song feel at all. Its great for a mixtape but for a album id skip this one. Big sean learned the differences between a mixtape and a album, the music on his album sounded very well produced and official, this sounds like a good mixtape song. I hope cole isnt producing most of his album, he needs to get some big boys on that shit, the drumma boys or no id's, hes a decent producer but his beats are pretty sleepy, and dull.

  • I HATE DRAKE & HIS FANS

    I don't mind if you got rnb guys on a rappers track. Even an rnb cutie would do ( Val young, 2pac - To live n die in L.A)...but IF your gonna do that, DO IT RIGHT DAMNIT!!! Don't sacrifice the production, don't sacrifice the lyrics, don't sacrifice the project. It still supposed to be hiphop, thats what the 90's did properly! No matter the collaboration, it stayed hiphop, n the hardest dudes wud be bumpin' that shit.... Now....???You got pop artists being called rnb, pop artists being called rappers!!!Thats y dudes like j.cole r headed in the right direction, hopefully that will stay, regardless if trey songz, chris brown, wheover gonna be on it....keep it real, keep it hip hop, keep it bumpin n let's keep doin it forever n ever!

    This track is sick!!! A dude below sad it reminded him of 90's, hella hella tru! Also tru that it won't likely get any radio play coz there is no CORNY idiot singing the chorus.

    • Anonymous

      Yessir homey, Cole reminds us of 90's cuz he raps like rappers used to rap, with skills. Most of his production is tight too. A majority of cats in the game now are RnB, Rap N Bullshit, skills take a back seat and all the production sounds the same, bunch of copy cat mother fuckers. Cole has been breathing life back into Hip Hop.

    • TrueTHAT

      Hit the nail on the motherfuckin head my man! But Cole is supposed to have Trey Songz on a hook on his next single. I hope that joint isn't corny!!

  • TheRealTruth

    Yeah it's not going to be a hit because it doesn't have a corny female singer on the chorus. The song is hot. it's reminiscent of a 90s hit rap song.

    • Meh

      Yeah, 90's. That was what? Over a decade ago. I bet any "corny female singer" could have helped him to put together a better first single...

      Sad to see how people think the need to become popular or blow up justifies mediocre music. This is trash, and while I get that it's a radio track or whatever, that doesn't take away from lack of quality (lyrically). The beat is flames though.

    lol j.coles fans are probably the biggest posers in rap. You talked all this stuff about j.cole changing the game... then he comes out with a typical radio record and you say "he needs to conform to appeal to the masses"> what happen to game changer? S---M----MF---H.. I dont care that he made a radio song.... I'm shaking my head and you stans and your contradictions. If I song is good Ill support it... but this aint all that. sorry.

    • Brother Teresa

      ON THE REAL: J. Cole might not be "changing" the game, but he sure as hell is progressing it. He's got a collegiate flare mixed with hood sentimentality (which is why he's been getting LOVE by both urban & suburban kids). An obvious student of the game with Great storytelling (Slick Rick), witty vernacular (Jay-Z), and the ability to spit his heart onto a track (2Pac). Am I a dick rider? Maybe by your juvenile definition, sure. BUT the truth of the matter is: IF you're as good as Cole, you deserve to get your dick rode. So keep cussing, keep name calling, STAY ANONYMOUS. The rest of us adults will be sharing perspectives that actually matter. Peace child.

    • AllDueRespect

      Listen J.Cole is a game changer. He's changing the game back to lyrics but at the same time you have to understand he's on a major label. He's has to generate revenue and get air play. Once he has peoples ears via radio people will start to pick his album where the lyrics are. A lot times we say the label didn't push the artists songs but if you can't get on radio where people hear music there is nothing to push. This song is like a cover to a book don't judge it too quickly.

    • will

      this guy does have a bit of a point ^ even if he was too scared to share his real name

  • Shane

    Autotune. Singing. Then the rhymes start - and they are pretty shit. No doubt this type of hip pop appeals to plenty, but not to me. Count me out of the J. Cole hype.

    • Drew420

      Try listening to Come up, Warm up, and Friday Night Lights (along with his recent releases) and maybe you'll understand the "J. Cole hype". This is just a single so you might wanna do your homework before you start hatin' on the best upcoming rapper.

    • Anonymous

      yeah, talkbox is not autotune in anyway. And the beat is cool. BUT I have to agree it's not really that great. a lot of singing, its a main-stream record.

    • Evan Nielson

      School up. It is a travesty to call the talkbox autotune. Fail.

    He flipped this Kanye track perfectly. I didn't know how he was gonna do it but this is serious. He is easily one of my top 5 now. He makes the music that any1 can relate to. Don't have to bang, sell anything illegal, go ridiculously hard for the new generation or step outside of his character for attention in the media. He's a true musician. I'm giving this man a 5.

  • ali

    okay , hes got a load of muthfckers on his arse right now telling him to get that album out . now one thing for sure this aint his lyrical shit buh gay-z needs to make money of this dude and in reality if he puts out lyricall shit poeple dont buy no more people wana buy these club tunes etc , j cole had done good here because its a radio tune but still he kept it real , dont expect to see alot of lyricall shit in the album either

  • rapstar

    to be a rap star, to blow up like Cole wants to---you gotta make a couple radio joints. This ain't corny. This ish is fresh. I dunno why a lot of people are hating. He can bring it lyrically like Return of Simba and Killers but he isn't allowed to make a fun radio hit????? Niggas be trippin.

  • cameron

    if you think about it this would be Coles 4th single. Lights please, Whot dat, In the morning and now Work out. I think he tried the previous three "singles" to get a radio play or maybe not radio play but to build that bigger fan base who aren't into the lyrical and emotional songs cole known for. J cole knows this and from a marketing view this work out song will get him more new fans that will dive into his music or let alone buy the debut album and realize cole is more than just a catchy radio pop star.

    i knew people would hate no matter what. your retarted if thought a song like "killers" or "return of simba" was going to be the first single. this song is fun, catchy and has a nice vibe to it that isnt annoying, and the song isnt even as bad and stupid as these new boyz, pitbull shit you hear on the radio - like this isnt some repetitive over-synthed crap with a gay pop singer featured - lost ones JUST leaked this week so dont get close to calling him a sellout, also this isnt a wicked brand new cole either he already had you got it, in the morning, higher -- now just becuz this is his SINGLE dusnt mean to hate

  • Joe Ramirez

    "Imagine what my shit gon' sound like if I told you that The Warm Up was just a sound bite." my ass!

  • Christian

    Before Cole released this single, all you fans were against the mainstream and now that he went down the route, it's being defended? The fact is that this the same way Wayne went mainstream because his fans would support whatever he went with. If this album was truely "game-changing" he wouldn't be dumbing down his lyrics like this. I mean even Drake brings out more lyrical singles and look what they are, HITS. The song is catchy, I will not deny that, and it will likely get play in my car and the club, but c'mon now if we continually support singles like this all it does is tell labels that this is what the core J. Cole fans want since we are pushing it too. I hope the album is much more lyrical then this, and I will support this album once it comes out. I'm a J. Cole fan but I'm just telling it like it is.

    • Drew420

      Couldn't agree more with that analysis, and second Maciel's comment. I can take one radio friendly single, but it worries me about the integrity of the album. I can't find one Cole track to date that I can say I dislike so I mean I'm sure he'll deliver to the true fans in the end.

    • Christian Maciel

      @Ricardo Yes I understand that. Only thing is that didn't know him before are now going to know him for this song, for this dumbed down style. @Slik A single is supposed to be a window into your album. A representation to the content, the approach of your album. Of course it's supposed to attract attention, but is this how you want the album to sound like? I know it won't sound like this single, but I'm just giving you what a single is supposed to be.

    • slik

      its a fuckin SINGLE, its supposed to ATTRACT people to the album, learn yo shit nigga

Premeditated murder, too deep before the intro, 2face, who that, in the morning > work out… I know cole fans gon hate what im about to say but if he want that smash hit, he def need to call drake n 40, boi1da n t-minus for that monster single n y’all know it. If he think he can do it on his own he is looking at 100k – 150k first week. Wiz did 250k and he had black n yellow. What does cole have, workout? I want him to succeed and i ain’t a huge fan plus he is a good rapper not all that talented. Lets be honest, when it comes to lyrics he ain’t the best now. Slaughterhouse will shit on cole with ease and fart in his mouth on a track, he ain’t even near dedication 2 weezy and his stans make it seem he is the greatest ever

    a fun song for the ladies and playas. he's swaggin it out on this track and the sample is bananas! U know he finna blow up with all this hate. hate fuels success. lyrically he'll shit on your favorite modern rapper and he can flip a sample to make it dope. Cole World!

  • Slop

    i'd have to call this song flat out wack.

  • Slop

    holy prehistoric dinosaur shit... that was pretty fuckin' wack. SMH

  • Realist

    The way he flipped the sample is ridiculous. And lets be honest, he has already leaked plenty of tracks for the hip-hop heads/internet nerds to be satisfied with. Now its the radio songs, its what Jay-Z signed him for. I mean truthfully hip-hop heads/internet nerds don't buy albums, middle class white girls do.

    most people here dont know shit about how business or the industry works..small minded people who dont look at the big picture..COLE gives us 100 great mothafuckin tracks, & people start calling him a sellout cause he wants to blow up and be rich by getting on the radio?? bitches please, get a life and stop hatin..this song aint no sellout

    doesnt deserve a four, j cole already sellin out.

    • FuckYouSay?

      What the fuck did you just say? Sellout? How? He wants to blow up. To blow up you have to cater to everyone. This song is for the radio and it's not corny like most of the shit that gets played in the top 40. If he had Britney Spears and Katy Perry signing that hook then yeah it'd be selling out. But this is a solo joint and it's dope so fuck off you anti-mainstream douche bag

  • Kenny Cartman

    dope shit, more radio-friendly, but could be a good single.

  • alexillmatic82

    And another thing (off topic slightly) Does anyone else think 'Lights Please' is his best song? If you listen, the song is about talking to a girl about global warming or whatever, but also maybe it is a metaphor for the girl not listening to lyrics? 'I told her all about how we been livin' a lie And that they'd love to see us all go to prison or die Like baby look at how they show us on the TV screen But all she ever want me to do is unzip her jeans' What ya'll think??

    • Lol

      Lol Global Warming? It's about how people never listen to anything someone is telling them and will always go for what they want.In the songs case,it's sex. He's trying to tell her in the entire song that they depict african americans in a poor light and we should rise and overcome that, but all she can think about is sex. Once he gives in, he is basically saying that everyone is susceptible to what they want, not what they need. Getting lost in the moment instead of looking at the big picture.

  • This is the single.....

    The Beats dope but lyrically lost ones has a better performance from Cole...but it's still hot

  • alexillmatic82

    Sounds a lot like 'Best friend' by 50. Better than 99% of the singles rap artists put out these days... Massive fan of J. Cole looking forward to his album. Oh and dont act like you 'hip-hop heads' aint never danced to 'Mo Money, Mo Problems' or 'Hey Ya'. They are as poppy as this.

  • Ruben

    He obviously simplified the verses...for the radio. still had a few nice lines though. Beat is ill, chorus is dope. We got a hit record on our hands. Danjahandz track will be the lyrically dope and catchy hook from Trey Songz that will get Cole even more radio play.

  • Eric Smith

    There's really nothing to be disappointed about with this song. Lyrically extensive or not, It's STILL (Real) Hip-Hop and not some Hip-Pop/Pop-Hop/Pop-Rap MTV/Top 40 Bullsh*beep* that plagues the industry today.

  • Jcolefans.com

    This is just the beginning people. For all your J.Cole needs: JColefans.com ...don't be a stranger.

  • CaliKushBlunt

    Cole is a MotherFucking Beast!!! And from the sound of it he probably made this beat as well.

  • Hasman

    My thoughts on the single. Firstly, I may have been saying I liked the single more than I really did when the live version dropped. I don't know if that was a result of waiting for the track as long as we did, or I was grasping at anything I could to finally see this album's promo and release to be set in motion. However, when the CDQ version dropped, I could hear that Cole had a legitimate hit in his hands. Hov said he and Cole had the one-two punch for this album. Well the first punch was just thrown, and it immediately connected. Before I get in to the track however, let it be clear, that if you were expecting Cole to put out a 'Return of Simba-esque' track as a single to shut down the radio and push this album to commercial success, you need to get the fuck out. Seriously. Many commented on the weak lyrics when the live version leaked. This I agree with, and despite a lot of the mistakes being cleared up with his higher quality leak, the lyrics are still shit. For a rapper praised to bring lyricism back in to rap, this track is embarrassing. But the poor writing can be easily forgiven by the music itself - that infectious melody and that catchy hook is the reason why I've already amassed 16 plays on my iTunes. I think this may be Cole's most layered and extensive beat to date. I'm finding it hard to articulate this point and really bring it home, but while the beat sounds 'simple', the depth in the music is so easy to hear (especially with headphones on). Whatever the instrument is from 3:30 onwards, I want more of it. Whoever produced this did a great job. I think Cole was trying to put out a hit, and he has all the right ingredients for it in this song. If anyone still thinks he's putting out a modern day Illmatic, he's not. Hip hop heads, forgive this cut. Casual music fans (and girls), enjoy. TBH, it irks me when I read blog comments of dumb ass Cole fans saying he should have put Return of Simba or Lost Ones out as a single. Cole is trying to hit it big in the mainstream and pave a path to stardom, not stay a internet mixtape rapper. This song is great. If you don't hear that, sorry.

    • Dope^

      Well put, I especially agree with the headphones comment. I wasn't really feeling this coming out of my laptop speakers >connect sick headphones >beat sounds a lot better and I can dig it

    • JoeM

      Fuck you! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPE!

    • slik

      i agree with everything, up until the part where you said he is not putting out a modern day illmatic...singles are supposed to attract people to buy the album..the album itself will contain the real shit, like lost ones and return of simba kind of stuff..in my opinion, friday night lights was the illmatic

  • MCthirty

    Sample is dope, catchy... Hot Track, F*ck off haters

  • SMHathaters

    solid for a single. RADIO and PARTY song. ease up, haters. It will create BUZZ. Most people who hate this song are used to hearing Cole spit straight fire (Simba songs, Lost Ones). The average listener (and people who don't have sticks up their fucking asses) who isn't familiar with Cole will feel this track. Oh and you know god damn well Cole is going to bring fire on the album (Lost Ones is proof). The track was strictly made to create buzz and get radio and club play. He succeeded with it. Fuck off haters

    • Catchy

      i think Work Out is catchy. it'll get radio play. he's trying to get laid so he's hyping himself up on this joint. simple track but it's catchy and easy to vibe to. don't over think it. he'll have deep shit on his album. Disgusting was a satirical joint. if u didn't get it then listen to it again if u have to.

      its just that nothing about this shit is catchy.. the hook, then he doesn't say anything particularly special in the verse. sounds more like disgusting.. idk

      my point exactly mike code take carter 3 for example whether you like wayne or not it would never have sold what it did without a song like lollipop, lollipop set up sonngs like a milli to do what they did. Cole's trying to gain new fans he doesnt wanna be overlooked by the masses - example nas, lyrically on another planet to 95% of mc's today but ask the average music fan about nas? they struggle

    • MikeCode

      That's the point galway's making, that true J. Cole fans that listen to his music knows this isn't his best work but music fans who will here it on the radio first will like it more. I'm pretty sure we all heard this first on a site and no the radio and we all know music always sounds better in your car. I just hope you there's a difference between radio singles and album songs. This is a song for the radio, How High & Return of Simba aren't.

      This ain't for us honestly. Return of Simba would just go over everybody's head. Plus you can't release a song without a hook nowadays.

    • Jluv

      I agree...return is wayyy better

    • Yeezy

      relax there young simba lol you taking this too serioous lol

    • What?

      What? Return of Simba isn't single worthy. It won't even be on his album. It's a great jam but it's just the third part of the Simba trilogy that was made to hold fans over. Work Out is a radio friendly hit. A good quality radio hit at that. It's not corny like Wiz Khalifa's Roll Up and other radio rap these days. This is a straight banger. Be satisfied that Cole made a radio friendly hit that's of good quality like the radio rap was in the 90s.

  • DeeJay S.

    It's like I cant get enough of Cole's music. If his album sells like a Eminem or Wayne album put together I won't be suprised.

    • Simba

      This is meant to be a fun radio hit/club banger/song for the ladies. It's not supposed to have amazing rhymes like Simba, Return of Simba, etc... It's a catchy radio hit for the ladies a la How Do U Want It by Pac and One More Chance Remix by Biggie. Fuck off. Cole World.

      HAHAHA! CHOSE ONE?! look at his first verse... She like them bar with the big old chains Ride around town in the big old Range I knew her when I riding big old chains Now the little nigga doing big old things Would you look at that, I came back for her Just to give it to her, like you asked for it Man that thing in them jeans too fat for her It rebounds so I caught it off the backboard I told her, baby girl come here Know I run the town even when I aint from there And I brag hardly but just to show up at this party I made What your nigga make in one year, thats unfair but So is life, take a chance roll a dice Money can’t buy you love cause it’s over priced Don’t overthink just hope it’s right I’m only here for the night TAKE A SECOND TO JUST READ THROUGH THAT VERSE. THE ONLY DECENTLY GOOD RHYME IN THERE WAS THE LOVE IS OVERPRICED LINE. I WROTE BETTER RAPS THAN THIS WHEN I STARTED RAPPING
