More Jermaine x L. Boogie! The Truly Yours 2 EP opener sees Cole sliding over Lauryn's "Nothing Even Matters"; it's too good to exist.
One of the best songs of Cole's career starting floating around, solo, two years before it showed up on his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story. It's a couple's difficult abortion argument told from his and her perspectives. The production's divine, the bars are beautiful, but the emotions spilling out are just so unforgettably affecting.
A horn-sprinkled Christmas song that plays well year-round. The fact Cole can toss off songs like this and never use them on an album has always been astonishing. "Home for the Holidays" reportedly features Beyoncé vocals, too.
Scoring the very choosy, frequently MIA Missy Elliott for the debut album was a big move, but having the track be this essential was huge.
