J. Cole has unveiled “Power Trip,” his collaboration with Miguel from his forthcoming Born Sinner LP. Unlike the last album cut we heard — the thumping rant that was “Miss America” — this one is all head-bobbing cool.

“Power Trip” starts with some throwback soul and a retro flute loop, with Miguel singing, “She got me up all night,” and sounding fittingly tired (we mean that in a good way). Then comes the gummy bass line, turning the song into a nimble display of retro-futurism, as Cole raps about a woman who has him under her (possibly nefarious) spell.

What do you think of the collaboration? Let us know below, or by hitting us up on Facebook and Twitter! And be sure to check out the song’s lyrics over at Direct Lyrics.
