It’s been four years since Jeremih has dropped an album; his last LP, All About You, was released in 2010. In 2012 the Chicago-based R&B singer released his very popular mixtape Late Nights with Jeremih featuring Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Fabolous and hit record “Fuck You All The Time” featuring Natasha Mosley.
Now as his album release date gets closer (Sept. 30), Jeremih has changed the name of his third LP from Thumpy Johnson to Late Nights: The Album. XXL recently caught up with the “Don’t Tell ‘Em” crooner who explained why he changed the album title.
“The last body of work I put out was Late Nights,” said Jeremih. “I still feel like how I was feeling when I recorded that. I was traveling, up late nights, recording all the time. It just felt like every record was catering to… I imagined if it was a big bed in the club, everybody would be in one big ass orgy off of all the songs [on the LP]. My first two albums I was making sad songs. I don’t feel like that no more. I was in a relationship then. I’m single as hell right now. You’re getting the best of my last single years.” [Laughs]
Jeremih just dropped his EP—No More—with L.A. bass music producer Shlohmo last week and is preparing to release a new mixtape titled N.O.M.A (Not On My Album) on Aug.4.—Emmanuel C.M.
