Jeremih’s latest album ‘All About You’ is in stores now and the singer stopped by Fox All Access to give them the scoop on the new record. The 23-year-old also talked about being a people person, what it was like working alongside 50 Cent on his new single ‘Down on Me’, his label boss L.A. Reid, and more. “It’s just about love, it’s about life, it’s about partying and having fun,” Jeremih said about ‘All About You’. “It’s about relationships. You feel like you’re going through anything, one of those, then ‘All About You’ is for you. The ‘you’ in ‘All About You’ is my fans. It’s just a dedication to y’all.” Watch the interview via YouTube below.

Jeremih checked in with his Twitter followers (@jeremih) earlier today, upset with his new Apple iPhone 4, not because of the much publicized reception issue, but the screen. The ‘Birthday Sex’ singer writes:

The R&B singer spoke about being raised on the south side of Chicago, being interested in electronics, his parents being there for him, the success of his breakout single ‘Birthday Sex’, the feature he had with Fabolous on ‘It’s My Time’, his new album and more. “I listen to all types of music, from the old Stevie Wonder which I was raised I listened to as a musician himself to growing up and listening to a lot of Musiq Soulchild and Donnell Jones who I credit a lot his tone and everything to a lot of my vocal ability,” Jeremih said of his influences. “I listen to that range to all types of rap. I just feel with those records, they needed that power.” Watch the interview via YouTube below the cut. (more…)
Jeremih appeared on Tim Westwood’s 1Xtra show in London to drop an acapella recently. The Chicago R&B singer talked about the fun he’s had recording ‘Birthday Sex’ and having more “shhh” everywhere he goes since it blew up on the radio before singing along to the track. As for Justin Bieber winning BET’s Best New Artist, Jeremih said “I think he deserves it. I think he’s talented man. You really can’t beat that. Young and talented.” Watch it via YouTube below the cut. (more…)
Jeremih was on hand for the 23rd annual ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards on June 25 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Friday (June 25). The singer, who was nominated for ‘Birthday Sex’ for Top R&B/Hip-Hop Song, which went to Jamie Foxx for ‘Blame It’, offered words to his Twitter followers (@jeremih) for the Founders Award winner:
Big ups to Dr. Dre for being honored tonite at the ASCAP awards!! Amazing to see & hear how he’s supplied us with decades of timeless music
If your Birthday falls on Valentine’s Day does that mean you get double birthday sex? Jenn of andPOP, who has a birthday on Valentine’s Day, posed the question to Jeremih. “I’m single now but I’ve always been pretty much with someone – a woman,” he told Jenn. “I was always pretty good with the ladies. I wouldn’t say the ‘Birthday Sex’ got me a different – it did get me a whole new wave, probably a different level. I might get a celeb now and then hopefully down the line.” He cited Keri Hilson and Halle Berry as examples. Watch it via YouTube below.
