It’s been just a little more than a week since J. Cole announced his latest record, KOD, but since then he’s already dropped it and released two videos. The first, the wild, cash-crazy “ATM”, arrived last Friday, and today he’s shared a clip for KOD’s “Kevin’s Heart”.
Directed by regular collaborator Scott Lazer, the video stars Kevin Hart himself as the comedian and actor is alternately judged and beckoned by a variety of women. It’s a clear reference to Hart’s own infidelity, which made headlines late last year, and a situation that dovetails with the song’s themes. It’s a bold move on Hart’s part, for sure. Cole cameos roughly halfway through the song, mirroring Hart’s struggles with a stroller in a way that suggests he’s all too familiar with Hart’s other, more personal struggles.
