Jay-Z has finally blessed his Roc Nation artist Jay-Z with a verse on his new single “Mr. Nice Watch” off his upcoming album Cole World: A Sideline Story, due September 27.
Cole told Vibe.com that he initially lost hope for the collaboration , but Hov came through in the end.
“I knew Jay was gonna be on [that song]. I knew he was going to do that. I knew as soon as we made it [like] ‘Watch Jay get on this. He was in L.A. and I got [there] that day around the VMAs or whatever. He actually pushed back the mastering, we went to mastering with no Jay-Z verse. I was like ‘oh okay cool, I guess he can’t do it. They were mastering the last song, and this is such a Jay-Z move, he called in and stopped the mastering and pushed it back like a week. Only he can do that. Everything worked out, I’m a true believer that everything happens for a reason.”
