About the Artist

Def Jam's latest sensation, Jeremih, was born with rhythm pulsing through his veins. Growing up on Chicago's infamous Southside, the 21 year-old singer/songwriter behind the nationwide breakout hit "Birthday Sex" started making big noise when he was just a little boy. "When I was three my mom and dad gave me a drum set for Christmas," recalls Jeremih. "It was a little Sears set and I ended up busting every head on it that year. That's when it hit them and me that I was really into percussion. At a very young age I really fell in love with making music."

As a student at Chicago's Morgan Park high school, Jeremih joined the marching band where he learned to play a multiple instruments including the saxophone, bass drum, cymbals, and quads. "I gradually started picking up the keys too `cause they had everything in the band room," he says. "I would listen to the radio and I learned to play by ear. I tried to take classes but the teacher would always yell at me because I wouldn't read the music. I would close my eyes and feel it and that's how I taught myself. Because he also excelled academically, Jeremih skipped his junior year and graduated high school when he was 16. With his mom and dad's encouragement, he enrolled in the University of Illinois' engineering science program. "I went there for a semester and had no problem," says Jeremih. "I was fully focused but then I started getting involved with the on-campus talent shows. That's when music really started taking control. I would be in class just writing lyrics. So I told my mom I wanted to enroll in Columbia College in Chicago because it was an art school and that's what I was into." In 2007, Jeremih began working towards a music business degree at Columbia College. He also started participating in the school's talent shows. In order to differentiate himself from the masses of aspiring rappers, Jeremih started to sing. After developing a reputation as a talented crooner on campus, Jeremih began collaborating with another one of Columbia's musically inclined students named Mick. "He was studying engineering and he knew how to use protools," says Jeremih. Soon Mick and Jeremih spent all of their free time laying down new music in Mick's homemade studio. They recorded a demo in 2008 and got the idea to bring it to Power 92, their local radio station in Chicago. Their first song to hit the airwaves was the catchy car-centric song called "My Ride" which first played on the station's local radio hour. But the song they recorded next would become their golden ticket, "Birthday Sex." Power 92's music director Bam fell in love with the sultry track and added it into the station's regular rotation. "That very next week, on October 30, 2008, I was in my car listening to the radio and next thing I knew, `Birthday Sex' came on," remembers Jeremih. "They were like, `Man, this is the new kid on the block, Chi-town's own Jeremih! They played it back to back like it was a new R. Kelly song." In February of 2009 Jeremih flew to New York City, to perform in front of Island Def Jam President LA Reid. L.A. was so blown away by the budding superstar's live performance and wide-ranging sound, he quickly made him part of the notorious label's roster. "I feel like I can hang with these artists at Def Jam," says Jeremih. Now the young soul singer is getting ready to release his self-titled debut album that he describes as "Urban pop." Produced entirely by his producer Mick, Jeremih's debut album blurs the traditional lines of musical genres. Tyra Bank's fierce swagger was his inspiration for the sonic stylings of "Runway" where he sings about captivating women who work the catwalk. Jeremih cranks up the energy on the up-tempo "Jumpin'" that will have clubs rocking nationwide. On "My Sunshine" Jeremih finds light on a gloomy day in the company of his loved ones. Then on "Starting All Over" the multi-talented songwriter channels Stevie Wonder's classic soul by crafting a song about new love. "Sometimes one of the hardest things to do in a relationship is to start over," says Jeremih. "You really have to get to know this new girl and her brand new lips, or brand new scent. I feel like it's one of the timeless records off the album that can be played 20 or 30 years from now." Even with his debut album mixed, mastered and ready to be released to the masses, Jeremih is still hard at work in the studio exercising his gift for making music. "I have no boundaries," he says. "It excites me to see what there is to come. I'm a writer, I'm a singer, I'm a producer, and I can play instruments. I feel like that's what sets me apart from all the other artists out there." Hallelujah.

Customer Reviews

Anyway, great beats, nice vocals.
SGT. Morgan
My ride is a good cruising song with your lady, but the first track "That body", has the best "club scene" beat and lyrics to boot.
J. Powell
I'm going to listen to the rest just so I can say I've listened to the entire thing.

Jeremih took the R&B world by storm by seemingly coming out of nowhere with one of the best songs of the year in Birthday Sex. Everyone and their momma remixed that song. Hailing from Chicago, The Windy City, it was clear from the first time I heard that song that Jeremih was something unique. This was confirmed when I saw him perform live and absolutely command the stage and crowd simultaneously singing for real(sounded exactly like the recorded track) and playing the piano. This kid was something to be reckoned with. Following that live performance he reminded me of another young artist in the 90's by the name of Tevin Campbell. I know that's a pretty lofty comparison (Tevin Campbell in his prime was arguably the most vocally talented 90's singer) but that's who he reminded me of.

Anyway I was interested as anyone else to see what he could bring to the table. His self titled debut turns out to be a hit and miss affair. Instead of exercising his inner Tevin, on the album he more closely resembles a younger The-Dream (not a bad comparison either because The Dream already has two classics in my opinion and has been the R&B genres cream of the crop since he debuted). Other standouts where he maximizes his talent besides the excellent Birthday Sex include Raindrops, That Body, Imma Star (2nd single), Starting Over (this is a great song should be third or 4th single...has some Stevie Wonder/MJ influence), My Sunshine, My Ride, and Buh Bye.

I believe Jeremih falls into the trap of trying to make club bangers and crossover pop tunes and that's exactly where he falters. He's not good at it...what he is good at is pure singing. Ballads, midtempos, and slow jams and it's what he should stick to in my opinion.

If you thought the "Birthday Sex" singer was a 1 hit wonder, you weren't alone. The top 40 hit is embarrassing (but catchy) and seemed to me more of an accidental success than due to any real talent. So no one was more surprised than me when I started listening to this album and.. (Lord have mercy) liked it! If you're a hater, don't fret, there are some definite tracks that should be skipped and aren't very enjoyable.. but sadly enough, even those tracks are actually a lot better than the duds by Jeremih's R&B competitors! Here's a track-by-track rundown of Jeremih's debut album:

01. That Body - With lyrics like "I like it naughty" and lots more drunk sex suggestions, this is your typical dirty mid tempo R&B track. It's nothing to write home about, but provides a good introduction to the album. 3/5

02. Birthday Sex - The guilty pleasure. You know it's dumb, but you can't help singing it. 4/5

03. Break Up to Make Up - Really fun synthy production, pretty enjoyable to listen to, one of my faves. 4/5

04. Runway - Great production, but the melody doesn't match the vocals, when it hits it hits, but when it misses it's bad. 2/5

05. Raindrops - Best song on the album, this is a smooth groove at it's finest, the whole production works really well. 5/5

06. Starting All Over - Boring, but I must admit his voice sounds good. 3/5

07. Imma Star - A melodic "I'm rich.. blah blah blah" track that doesn't sound bad but doesn't offer anything to the table. 2/5

08. Jumpin - Party stopper, skip this one. 1/5

09. Hatin on Me - Skip part 2. 1/5

10. My Sunshine - Not exactly R&B, this track is way more pop. The genre mixup doesn't really go with Jeremih's voice, but it's an alright song.

Another hip-hop album about money, sex, women and cars - How unoriginal

That Body - Just terrible. "let me work that body" - How many Times Have I heard that before. 0/5 PASS
Birthday Sex - another lame sex song. Now, if it were Birthday Cake, Maybe I'd like it better. The "Girl you know I-I-I, Girl you know I-I-I" is catchy and that's about it. 1/5
Break Up To Make Up - lyrically not bad. Vocally could use improvement 2.5/5
Runway - Another song about good looking women - 0/5 DONE BEFORE. NEXT
Raindrops - IE The sweat dripping from his forehead during intercourse. 0/5
Staring all Over - A song about starting all over with someone new - Vocally and lyrically the best song on the CD and unlike the others on the album, it's not full of sexual innuendos. 4.5/5
Imma Star (Everywhere we Are) - Another one of those "I got money, cars and Women" songs. 0/5
Jumpin - Song about how the party at the club is Jumpin. Destiny's Child's "Jumpin' Jumpin' ring a bell Anyone? 0/5
Hatin' On Me - Another song for the haters - Jill Scott (Hate on me), Nas (Hate me Now), Chamillionaire (Ridin) have done it before. TIME FOR SOMETHING NEW 0/5
My Sunshine - Another good song off the album about the sadness of a woman who left him 4/5
My Ride - Basically He's saying "If you don't find me sexy, my car is" - 0/5
Buh Bye - A decent song about no longer being in love - 3/5

PROS
1. Lack of samples

CONS
1. Lack of originality when it comes to the story telling.

Songs Tell Stories and Jeremih's stories pretty much say the same thing every thing else Hip-Hop says these days
