Jeremih's Late Nights: Like The Weeknd Without the Druggy and Pretentious Horseshit

_jeremih.jpg
There's no way I should tell you to be on the lookout for Jeremih. Dude made "Birthday Sex." His last hit had 50 Cent on it, and that dude has eardrums made out of tin. Again, he made "Birthday Sex." That's one way of looking at it, at least.

The real reason I shouldn't have to tell you to be on the lookout for Jeremih is you should already be in love with him. With a single mixtape, the Chicago singer managed to resuscitate his reputation amongst knowing R&B fans, proving himself versatile, daring, smooth, and most importantly, just straight-up capable of creating great-ass music.

The mixtape in question is Late Nights, Jeremih's August offering that was --amongst those who gave it a chance -- one of the most beloved of 2012, showcasing a Jeremih that we'd seen only glimpses of on his first two albums, All About You and Jeremih. On those tapes he revealed himself to be a talented but derivative singer and songwriter, showing flashes of artists such as The-Dream, R. Kelly, Lloyd, and Raphael Saadiq. He scored hits, yes, but they were written off as piffle; mere flukes from a thin-voiced pretender who benefited from the same system that allowed Pitbull to eke out an existence in the glittery gutters of hip-house. In between 2010's All About You and his recent resurgence, however, something happened to Jeremih that happens to every actual artist: He ceased to sound like a mishmash of others, and instead began to sound like uniquely himself.

....uhm.

I'm sorry but the review is executed poorly and misconstrues Jeremih's desire for a mainstream sound. There's also no mention of Rated R and F*ck U All the Time which with regard to this release are absolutely worth mentioning for their direction.

"Jeremih's Late Nights: Like The Weeknd Without the Druggy and Pretentious Horseshit" 

ARE YOU SERIOUS?

As a reader of VV & a fan of BOTH VV AND The Weeknd I am APPALLED at this article / title.

WHAT WOULD MAKE YOU SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT?

WHY ARE YOU EVEN COMPARING AN ARTIST TO ANOTHER ARTIST?

Just you putting DOWN The Weeknd in FAVOR of this artist makes me NEVER want to listen to him.

"The real reason I shouldn't have to tell you to be on the lookout for Jeremih is you should already be in love with him"...really? If THAT'S the case than WHY do you need to compare and / or disrespect another artist in order to promote him if he's REALLY that worth listening to? You mean this guy can't get ANY fans, listeners, ect WITHOUT being compared to another artist / or having another artist be disrespected in honor of him? Because if that is the case / why you would say these things than I HIGHLY DOUBT his music career will go ANYWHERE with promoters like YOU.

And btw, The Weeknd's music is NOT druggy, pretentious NOR is it "horsehit" IN ANY WAY.

THE WEEKND'S MUSIC IS SIMPLY AMAZING.

Period.

And if you cannot understand, hear or realize that...than WHY should anyone listen to you, your advise or who you think is a great artist?  

And since your comparing them, WHY should anyone take your opinions seriously?

Oh & for the record...JEREMIH & THE WEEKND SOUND NOTHING ALIKE.

If ANYTHING Jeremih's music is completely INFERIOR to the EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY of The Weeknd's music which MAKES him stand out from so many others like Jeremih who are completely generic & forgettable.

This is NOT a biased opinion from me based on YOUR biased opinions within this article, NO. I am only being 100% honest & I USUALLY don't like comparing artists in the 1st place, however for this ONE moment it was necessary. Especially since I highly doubt I will even remember that guys name after I'm done writing this comment.

How DARE you even COMPARE Jeremih to The Weeknd?

Are you TRYING to embarrass Jeremih or do you just want ppl to hate you? 

What kind of PATHETIC writer are you?

Hey, Drew Miller you are one piece of shit, hating ass, sorry excuse for a writer / journalist or WHATEVER you consider yourself to be.

Basically, FUCK YOU
