The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I'm sorry, guys, but I think the new Björk video is pretty boring. I was all set to love it, but I don't love it. It's not on this list. There were plenty of better videos that came along in the past week, and five of them are below. More »

Bobby Brackins – “My Jam” (Feat. Zendaya & Jeremih) Video

When "My Jam" first dropped, not only did I laud it as the next inescapable song of the summer, I also fervently wished it would get a dance-ready, colorful video. My wish has been granted. Bobby Brackins, Zendaya, and Jeremih all cleared their schedules, hopped a flight to Puerto Rico, and captured the day-drunk,… More »

Bobby Brackins – “My Jam” (Feat. Zendaya & Jeremih)

One of my favorite songwriting maneuvers is the song-about-the-song. It's practically a whole subgenre of songwriting, and who doesn't love that meta feeling of vibing to a song that's ostensibly about a totally different one? The new Bobby Brackins track "My Jam" falls into this category, and it's also about to be one of those… More »

Jeremih – “Planes” (Feat. J. Cole)

Jeremih threw shots at his label home Def Jam in his recent "Big Dawg Shit," alluding to behind-the-scenes conflicts keeping his long-promised Late Nights album from coming out. Those tensions do not seem to be resolved. Yesterday Jeremih posted a marvelous new single called "Planes" to his SoundCloud, tweeting that an unfinished versio… More »

Jeremih – “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana) Video

It is rare you see an R&B crooner wear more chains than a rapper in a video, but Jeremih one-ups both Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana in the video for the remix of Jeremih's summer hit "Don't Tell 'Em." The video is a peek into the lavish life, set in a decadent mansio… More »

The Week In Pop’s Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2014

Two weeks ago we looked at the year's biggest pop songs; now let's run down the best ones. There will be a lot of overlap, of course, partly because sometimes great songs get popular and partly because sometimes popular songs that initially strike you as insufferable end up wearing you down through sheer persistence.

Jeremih Arrested For Trying To Board A Locked Flight

Jeremih – “Big Dawg Shit” (Feat. Chi Hoover) Video

The release of Chicago R&B singer Jeremih's anticipated Late Nights album keeps getting pushed back, but I guess if you're a big dawg you can't afford to worry about petty shit like that. Instead, in the video for "Big Dawg Shit," a new collaboration with rapper Chi Hoover, Jeremih is spending his time driving fancy… More »

Watch Lorde Cover Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell Em” On BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge

The Chicago R&B singer Jeremih's YG/DJ Mustard collab "Don't Tell 'Em" is one of 2014's great stealth hits, a smooth and wormy fuck-anthem that worked in a brilliant Snap! interpolation and hit its chart peak months after it appeared on Soundcloud. It's maybe not the most likely song for teenage pop phenom Lorde to… More »

Snootie Wild – “Made Me (Remix)” Video (Feat. Jeremih & Lil Boosie)

"Made Me," from the previously unknown Memphis rapper Snootie Wild, was a serious windows-down banger even before the Chicago R&B singer Jeremih and the wiry, emotive Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie threw great verses on the remix. Both of them show up for the new "Made Me (Remix)" video, as does Snootie's label bo… More »

Jeremih – “Nobody But U”

The Chicago R&B star Jeremih, one of his genre's most exciting voices right now, released two very good mixtapes this summer, and "Don't Tell 'Em," his great single with YG, just squeezed its way into Billboard's top 10 this week. Unfortunately, we still don't know when his album Late Night is coming… More »

The Week In Pop: Tove Lo Is About To Release The Best Pop Album Of 2014 (So Far)

Tove Ebba Elsa Nilsson, the pop singer known as Tove Lo, emerged out of Sweden last year with "Habits (Stay High)," a song that pulled no punches in its description of coping with a breakup in the messiest possible way. "I eat my dinner in my bathtub/ Then I go to sex clubs/ Watching… More »

Snootie Wild – “Made Me (Remix)” (Feat. Jeremih & Lil Boosie)

Snootie Wild is a North Memphis rapper and a part of Yo Gotti's CMG crew, and his twinkling, rumbling K Camp collab "Made Me" has lately been making the transition from regional hit to national hit. The new remix should seriously hasten that process. The two guests on the remix -- slippery Chicago R&B… More »

Jeremih – “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” (Feat. Migos)

Earlier this week, we heard a remix of Jeremih's explicit club anthem "Don't Tell 'Em," which featured new verses by Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana. Now, another remix of "Don't Tell 'Em" is released, this time accompanied by verses from Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset, the three Atlanta natives who comprise hip-hop group Migos. More »

Jeremih – “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana) + “Fuck You All The Time (Remix)” Video

Jeremih's Snap!-interpolating illicit sex jam "Don't Tell 'Em" is significant for multiple reasons. For one thing, it's one of the Chicago R&B singer's biggest hits to date, ruling R&B radio, nearing the top 10 of the pop singles chart, and helping to put the novelty curio "Birthday Sex" (still his highest-charting song) further i… More »

Omarion & Jeremih – “Show Me”

Lately Chicago singer Jeremih has been emerging as one of the most exciting voices in R&B. As Tom noted last week, he's gone from a B- or C-list loverman crooner to a guy who comfortably slides all over the spectrum from radio-ready hits to internet-friendly experimental stuff. In fact, Jeremih has become… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Jeremih N.O.M.A. (Not On My Album)

A few years ago, Jeremih came off like Trey Songz' younger cousin, or like a poor man's Usher: A slick young R&B loverman who sounded happiest when he was playing songs that could conceivably get played in the club. Some of his songs were great -- I loved the way he glided over the track… More »

Download Jeremih N.O.M.A. (Not On My Album) Mixtape

A couple of weeks ago, the great Chicago R&B singer Jeremih teamed up with the bass music producer Shlohmo to release No More, an EP-length mixtape that stands as one of the year's strongest mixtapes. But as we're still absorbing that one, Jeremih has already moved onto his next tape. The seven-song new solo… More »

Jeremih – “She Know It” (Feat. Chi Hoover) Video

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… More »
