J. Cole and Miguel came back with another power collab. Following the supreme “Power Trip,” the duo joined forces again with “Come Through and Chill” off Miguel’s forthcoming album War & Leisure.
Produced by Salaam Remi, Miguel is the aggressor in this scenario. “Hello, stranger,” he sings. “It’s been a minute since we last kicked it / By the way, I just got in town / And I won’t let cumulus clouds all in the sky ruin my vibe / Usually, I don’t do this often / But since we’re coolin’, is it an option?”
Jermaine offers a similar proposition in only way he could. “Know you’ve been on my mind like Kaepernick kneelin’ / Or police killings, or Trump sayin’ slick shit,” he raps. “Manipulatin’ poor white folks because they ignant / Blind to the struggles of the ones that got the pigment / Lately I’ve been stressin’ ’cause it seems so malignant.”
Miguel gushed about the reunion during an interview with Beats 1. “He’s good energy,” he said. “I think that’s one of things that as fans of music, we really care when someone can capture our energy and take what they’re feeling and translate it. He’s always been exceptional at that. And so when he comes on, as like you said, when I first heard his verse too, I was like see. And then what he’s saying is just spot on. I think that’s what it is. Beyond music, I fuck with Cole, he’s fucking with me. We’re friends on the outside of this. Yeah. It’s an honor to have him as a friend, not only in music, but in general.”
