5 years ago I don’t think anyone could have predicted so many electronic producers openly embracing an R&B crooner like Jeremih – exciting collaborations like this are a testament to how far it’s all come (specifically referring to R&B here). Just a few years ago R&B was generally considered a dirty word, untouchable by near enough everyone – even at times long-time fans; But having gone through a semi-URL-rebirth over the past few years it’s back on the tips of everyones tongue and in a good way. #Cyclelife.
Shlohmo mentioned in an interview we did with him in Seattle late last year that his favourite song of 2012 was Jeremih’s ‘F*ck U All the Time’ (which you’ll remember he remixed) and that he wanted to work with him properly in the studio – well here’s the fruits of that wish. ‘Bo Peep’ (Do U Right)’ was recorded as part of Yours Truly & Adidas’ ‘Songs from Scratch’ series, the drowsy slow jam sees Shlohmo delve deep into his multilayered influences (is that a ‘Tainted Love’ sample?) and has Jeremih singing a typically come-hither set of verses.
