Songfacts®:

  • Here, J. Cole raps about finding a beautiful female's picture on social media. Despite not knowing anything about the girl, he falls in love with her to the extent that his obsession messes with his health.

    Fell in love through photograph
    I don't even know your name
    Wonder if you'd follow back
    I hope to see you one day
    I won't show my niggas now
    I'II keep this one for myself
    Love today's gone digital
    And it's messing with my health


    One of the acronyms for KOD is Kids On Drugs, and Cole is exposing on "Photograph" how addictive social media has become in our culture.
