Though he has proven himself to be one of the industry’s most reliable hitmakers, Jeremih’s third studio album has seemingly been mired in purgatory. Now, all that is changing. According to his label, Def Jam, the Chicago crooner’s Late Nights: The Album will hit shelves on July 17, just in time to heat up radio waves during the Midwest summer’s dog days. The album will feature “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” his inescapable YG-featuring, DJ Mustard-produced hit from last year, as well as recent singles “Planes” and “Tonight Belongs to U.” (The former sports a contribution from J. Cole, the latter from Flo-Rida.) Late Nights will be rounded out by appearances from Trey Songz and Fabolous (“Got Damn”), Juicy J (“Can’t Go No Mo”) and French Montana and Johnny Cinco (“She No Good”).
Jeremih burst onto the scene in 2009 with his debut single, “Birthday Sex.” His self-titled debut album rose to #6 on Billboard, topping the R&B chart in the process. The following year, he dropped the follow-up All About You, which was anchored by the singles “I Like” and “Down on Me,” which featured rappers Ludacris and 50 Cent, respectively. That album did not fare as well commercially, which became a contributing factor in sidelining Jeremih for the next five years.
