It's been a tough two weeks for fans of J. Cole's debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story who were used to religiously streaming the album. Fret not, Jermaine fans. The album has now returned and is available for your streaming pleasure.
Dreamville president Ibrahim "Ib" Hamad announced the re-arrival on Saturday (Oct. 13) on Twitter. He didn't give details on the head-scratching removal. "Back by popular demand, it’s a long story why it got taken down but just know it’s back. Enjoy," he tweeted.
Hamad's DMs are surely thankful. He apparently felt the brunt of fans' frustrations when the project was pulled on Sept. 28. On Tuesday (Oct. 2), he responded to the overflow of requests by announcing the LP would be back up soon. "To everyone tweeting me about sideline story, I’m aware of what happen and we will get it back up soon," he tweeted. "You can stop tweeting me now."
It took a couple of weeks, but fans can now breathe a sigh of relief and go back to bumping bangers like "Lights Please," "Mr. Nice Watch," "In the Morning" and more.
Cole just wrapped his lengthy KOD Tour. He recently had to reschedule his inaugural Dreamville Festival due to Hurricane Florence. Initially slated to go down on Sept. 15, the event, which will take place in Raleigh, N.C., will now happen on April 6, 2019.
