R&B hit-maker Jeremih has surprise-released his long-delayed third LP, Late Nights: The Album, via Spotify and Apple Music. The 15-track album, which follows 2010’s All About You, features sultry singles “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” “Planes,” “Oui,” “Royalty” and “Pass Dat,” along with guest appearances from J. Cole, Future, Big Sean, Migos, Ty Dolla $ign and more.
Jeremih’s label, Def Jam Records, pushed back the album’s release several times last year, and an official date was never confirmed. The singer told Billboard that delays were tied to mixing and mastering problems, along with sample and clearance issues connected to “Planes” (on which J. Cole replaced original guest Chance the Rapper).
He also directly blamed Def Jam: “My label is hesitating and not being on my side,” he told the publication. “I see other artists and how they’re supported. It’s hard when I’m on a roster with Rihanna, Rick Ross and Kanye West.”
Though Late Nights: The Album is Jeremih’s first official LP since 2010, he’s kept momentum with a steady steam of releases – including the 2012 Late Nights mixtape and the 2014 EP No More, a collaboration with producer Shlohmo which cracked Rolling Stone’s list of the year’s 20 Best R&B Albums.
