DJ Drama’s next album will contain a track called ‘Undercover’ that teams up hip-hop and R&B stars Chris Brown andJ. Cole. And the main reason Drama paired them together is simply because they’ve never worked together before.
“We were searching for tracks for Chris,” Drama told MTV News. “I really needed to get something that felt right. We got him something, Chris went in. I thought about it for a minute. Who hasn’t he worked with, who hasn’t he been on a record with?”
Drama eventually settled on Cole for ‘Undercover,’ which was produced by V12 the Hitman. “It’s a good record. I think the ladies are gonna like this one,” Drama promises. The track will appear on the DJ’s ‘Third Power’ record, which drops Oct. 11.
Though MTV notes that Cole and Brown did appear together on a little-known remix, ‘Undercover’ is their first significant collaboration. Drama is one of the many people in the J. Cole fan club lately. “J. Cole has definitely been doing his thing,” he says. “That’s another guy that I have a lot of respect for and I’m excited for what he’s accomplishing.”
Cole’s debut, ‘Cole World: The Sideline Story,‘ was just released this week and is on track to enter the album chart at No. 1.
