In addition to topping our Top Picks chart for six straight weeks (tied with Drake, Weezy, & Bun‘s Uptown for the Booth record), R&B phenom Jeremih‘s smash hit single Birthday Sex recently climbed to the #9 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, knocking Jamie Foxx & T-Pain‘s Blame It off its fourteen-week pedestal. Riding high off this string of unexpected successes, the Chi-Town native is currently meeting with his label team and manager/producer Mick Schultz to select an equally appealing follow-up. Set for inclusion on a Def Jam album sampler (out now at select stores), one of the leading contenders sees Shultz providing a Timbo-esque beat as Jeremih and his special lady make some Raindrops together. Why isn’t the guest rapper credited? Well, Jeremih is that rapper, and his solid verse on the back end may leave listeners wondering if he’ll be doing any emceeing on his forthcoming debut album. For the answer to this question and many more, check back with us next month, when Jeremih will step into the Booth for an exclusive interview.
