J. Cole performs at Ebrington Square in Northern Ireland on May 24, 2013. 

A reaffirmation to his hit “Nobody’s Perfect,” J. Cole’s “Crooked Smile” spent 16 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. The No. 27 hit features '’s T-Boz and Chili and has the same message of love as Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are.” The Hot 100 Music Festival performer uplifts women to recognize their inner beauty in a culture that defines beauty by unattainable standards.
