On April 20, J. Cole released his fifth studio album "KOD" without much notice - a record with which the American rapper and producer broke two streaming world records at once: "KOD", the title song, overtook Taylor Swift's " Look What You Made Me Do ”for most Spotify streams on the day of release, while the entire album is the most streamed long player on Apple Music to date (Drake was the front runner here with his album“ Views ”). J. Cole already shared a music video for the song "ATM" - now he has released the successor "Kevin‘s Heart".

Fortunately, the song is better than the lame pun on the video protagonist Kevin Hart. Hart, known from commercially successful Hollywood comedies such as "Ride Along", "Pets" and "Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle", made headlines last December with his confession of cheating on his pregnant wife. "KOD", an abbreviation for "Kids On Drugs" or "King Overdose", is a loose concept album about addiction, so Cole deals with hypersexuality and its effects in "Kevin‘s Heart".
