New York City’s newest festival, The Meadows, made its debut yesterday featuring a stacked lineup despite The Weeknd dropping out at the last minute. The headliner spot for the first day went to J. Cole, who also dropped a big surprise. Shortly before finishing his set, he revealed to the audience, “Before I get out of here, listen. This is my last show for a very long time.” Though he didn’t go on to specify why, maybe the artist is taking a well-deserved break. It’s been almost two years since Cole put out his last full-length album Forest Hills Drive and in that time he’s been touring, headlining festivals and shooting concert documentaries. Check out some of the reactions to J. Cole’s sudden news.
