Produced by ascendent beat-maker DJ Mustard and featuring lyrics from Snap!’s 1992 club hit “Rhythm Is a Dancer,” Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em” has spent the last three months rising up the charts. Now, the tune is the biggest R&B song in the country and approaching the pop Top 10, and the Chicago singer is celebrating with a bi-coastal remix featuring a pair of guest verses.
Ty Dolla $ign, a West Coast R&B affiliate of original featured artist YG, opens the new version, singing about L.A. and the World Cup. Jeremih’s second verse holds over from the original, and New York rapper French Montana closes it out by doubling the song’s number of Bobby Brown references, rapping the lines “You know I act a fool, Bobby Brown with it/Got her leg shaking, James Brown with it.”
The song is the first single off Jeremih’s forthcoming Late Nights: the Album.
