Hip-Hop star J. Cole has a lot to smile about these days.  His up-coming album is gaining momentum, he is gearing up for a new tour and he just released his second track on Monday entitled, “Crooked Smile.”

Cole is joined by 90’s trio turned duo TLC for a light-hearted tune that pokes fun at his dental issues. Ironically, the song is very similar to the TLC single, “Unpretty” which also deals with issues of self-image and unrealistic concepts of beauty.  Check out the lyrics below:

“Killin’ yourself to find a man that’ll kill for you/ You wake up, put make up on/ Stare in the mirror/ But it’s clear that you can’t face what’s wrong/ No need to fix what God already put his paintbrush on,”  he raps.
