The Roc Nation rapper says that he decides to reshoot the music video because the first version doesn't 'come out exactly' how he wants.

Fans will have to wait a little bit longer until drops the music video for "Crooked Smile". In a recent interview with Miss Info, the 28-year-old rapper said that he decided to reshoot the whole music video as he was unhappy with the first version.

"We have to re-shoot it," Cole told the site. "It came out nice but it just didn't come out exactly how I wanted. It's such an important song so I want the visual to match. If this was my first video then I would have panicked. We had to re-shoot 'Work Out' too."

In addition to still featuring 's Chilli, the new version will have a story concept. Fans can expect it to be released in a few weeks.

Cole went on to talk about how the success of & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" enabled his "Crooked Smile" to appear on Pop radio.

"['Crooked Smile'] deserves to be the number one record in the country. I think Macklemore's 'Thrift Shop' gave me hope for a song like this," the Roc Nation rapper said. "I think he kinda... as weird as it is, and it's always happens like this, the White boys got to open the door for Black people at White radio."

"It happened with [], , , , and now hopefully Macklemore with a song like 'Thrift Shop' can allow 'Crooked Smile' to get its proper shine at Pop radio," he added.
