J. Cole Replacing Cee Lo On Rihanna’s LOUD Tour

Roc Nation rapper  J.Cole is the official opener for Rihanna’s summer LOUD tour.

Green dropped out of the tour due to his commitments with NBC’s The Voice, as well as working on a new album and writing a book.

“He always puts 100 percent into his work and with the requirements and time commitment to ‘The Voice,’ on top of heading back into the recording studio and an upcoming book, he feels that he wouldn’t give his fans the show that they deserve” says his publicist.

J. Cole is set to release his album Cole World: The Sideline Story September 27.
