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 version had leaked earlier in the day, but Def Jam deleted the song within minutes. That’s too bad because the sleek, sultry production functions as an expert showcase for the Chicago singer’s neon-bright vocal talents, tired sex-on-planes motif and clunky J. Cole guest verse be damned. Listen below.
Late Nights will hopefully be out sometime soon on Def Jam.
