Jeremih (born 17 June 1987) – aka Jeremih Felton – is an R&B singer-songwriter as well as a music producer hailing from Chicago, Illinois, US.
Jeremih has been experimenting with music since the early age of three. As a child he taught himself how to play various instruments and participated in marching band and a Latin jazz band while in high school. He continued his musical ambitions while attending college and collaborated with producer Mick Schultz to create the song “My Ride”. As Jeremih was starting to gain more prominence with his music he was soon able to audition for the A&R department at Def Jam Recordings, who immediately signed him to the label after the audition.
His debut self-titled album was released in 2009 and gained him both critical and commercial acclaim. The album was quick to gain a following and reached the No. 6 slot on the Billboard 200 charts. The album featured hit singles such as “Birthday Sex” and “Imma Star (Everywhere We Are)”, which are constant staples in Jeremih’s setlists. “Birthday Sex” reached the No. 4 slot in the Billboard Hot 100 charts and has been certified platinum. The single contained smooth bass lines and Jeremih’s soft, silky voice that gained him comparison to one of his major influences, R. Kelly.
Jeremih’s second album “All About You” showed him continuing with his soulful take on music as well as collaborating with notable artists such as Ludacris and 50 Cent. His song “Down on Me”, which featured 50 Cent contained a more energetic hip hop vibe and included a music video that was innovatively presented in 3D.
Jeremih has collaborated with a diverse group of artists during his career including Busta Rhymes, French Montana, T.I., Wale, and Rick Ross. Jeremih has also performed with the R&B legend Lionel Richie on the song “Just Go” for the ABC show “One Life to Live”. Jeremih’s tour schedule is often very hectic and he is likely to pack out the venue wherever he tours. Whenever he tours he is likely to be sharing the bill with other notable performers. In the past he has toured with the likes of Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, and Soulja Boy. His music continues to grow deeper and richer in sound with each release and his soulful music will always seem to find itself at the top of the charts.
