J.Cole Explains The Meaning Behind 'Love Yourz' With Tavis Smiley
J.Cole explains the meaning behind his record "Love Yourz" with Tavis Smiley.
J.Cole surprised fans at the end of 2014 with his widely praised album 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The 13-track opus covered a bevy of topics including learning to appreciate loved ones and the life you've been given.
The 30-year-old Roc Nation artist stopped by PBS for a sit-down with seasoned host Tavis Smiley and explained the meaning behind his hit "Love Yourz," a track Cole says sums up the entire album.
"When I was young, I thought that success was all I needed. That was going to bring the happiness. Buying my mom a house, the fame, the accolades having people say 'Yo, you really are the best in the game.' I thought those things would bring the happiness. Then when those things came, the happiness wasn't there."
