J. Cole Enlists Melanie Fiona For Upcoming Album

Melanie Fiona Used 'MF Life' Delay To Bring In Nas, Drake, J. Cole

Aside from their collaboration, "This Time," off her sophomore album, "The MF Life," (March 20), Fiona told The Juice that the two recently got in the studio in L.A. to lace a song for Cole's next project.

"I did a track for him which will probably be on his new album... His song [has] a real positive message," Melanie Fiona revealed. "It's about a competition he was having with young girls and boys about keeping your head up and staying positive. I actually haven't heard a final version of it yet."

Fiona couldn't pass up on collaborating, yet again, with fellow Roc Nation labelmate, especially on a track that showcases one of Cole's strong points. Enlightening lyricism. "It felt good that he had reached out to me to be on a record like that, you know? I think that says a lot about how he sees me as an artist and that's cool. That's exactly how I want to be represented," Fiona told The Juice.
