The hype surrounding J. Cole's debut album,  Cole World: The Sideline Story , is hitting a new gear, with only 12 days before it drops. On Wednesday, he dropped a video and a song - the vibrant clip for his radio-friendly-but-still-good single "Can't Get Enough" featuring Trey Songz and a rap-nerd's dream collaboration "Mr. Nice Watch" with his Roc Nation boss, Jay-Z. The "Can't Get Enough" video is standard fare, bolstered by the natural beauty of Barbados and a cameo from Rihanna.

Host Guatemala, an outsider in a CONCACAF qualifying group that also includes Barbados and Costa Rica, is doing everything it can to make today's opener difficult, including shifting the site from the capital city to isolated Mazatenango.
