Platinum listed, hip-hop producer and recording artist, and Grammy nominee J. Cole is announced to perform at the du Arena on Friday 24th November, completing a full four-day line-up of world-class entertainment at the 2017 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX.
Raised in North Carolina, Cole initially gained recognition as a rapper following the release of his debut mixtape, The Come Up, in early 2007. Intent on further pursuing a solo career as a rapper, he went on to release two additional mixtapes after signing to Jay Z's Roc Nation imprint in 2009. In 2014, Cole’s album 2014 Forest Hills Drive was certified platinum in the US and went on to earn him his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album.
The Grammy nominee promises to set the crowd alight with tracks including those from his latest album ‘4 Your Eyez Only’, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified platinum in April 2017.
Cole replaces previous Friday night headliner Kendrick Lamar who is unable to perform due to personal reasons.
