J. Cole has announced the delay of his sophomore album Born Sinner, originally slated for release on January 28th.

While on the red carpet for his New Year’s Eve performance at Las Vegas, Nevada’s Tao, the Roc Nation rapper revealed to PopStopTV that the album won’t make the deadline and that fans can expect it later in the year.

“Nah, it’s not going to make January 28th. It’s going to be a little later than that. I needed more time to get it done,” he said. “I don’t even know what [fans are] going to feel. I hope they’re going to love it, but I don’t know if it’s going to be the production or the stories.”
