The Chicago R&B smoothie Jeremih, alongside producer Shlohmo, is half of the tandem that put together the No More EP, one of the year’s better free mixtapes. But that tape came out only a week ago, and Jeremih has already snapped back into solo mode. His as-yet-untitled third album is due this fall from Def Jam, and first single “Don’t Tell ’Em” absolutely bangs. And now he’s announced that he’ll release Not On My Album a new mixtape of stuff that we shouldn’t look for on that LP, next month. Given that Jeremih’s last solo tape was Late Nights, an excellent slow burner, this is good news indeed. The first track we’ve heard from the tape is “She Know It,” a casually badass collaboration with the Chicago rapper Chi Hoover, and it’s already got its own low-budget penthouse-party video from directors Kevin & Tionne. Watch it below.
Not On My Album is due 8/4.
