A couple of months ago this image appeared online having been Instagrammed by Friends of Friends labelhead Leeor Brown. It shows L.A. producer Shlohmo and Chicago’s R&B singer Jeremih both with their feet up in the studio. Speculation circulated as to what they were planing and it appears that releasing a remix of ‘Fuck U All The Time’ to worldwide critical acclaim and over 650,000 Soundcloud plays leads to getting the singer in the studio.
Yours Truly and Adidas Originals has been bringing this type of duo together recently, with partnerships including Lunice & Angel Haze and AraabMuzik & Danny Brown, as part of its ‘Songs From Scratch’ series and it’s now paired up these two.
The result is ‘Bo Peep (Do U Right)’. The song pairs up Shlohmo’s mechanical style of drums and laid back feel with Jeremih crooning a series of ‘come hither’ verses over the top. The combination sees Shlohmo’s beats finally showing their potential to be accessible to a more pop-orientated audience and Jeremih heading down a purple R&B route that has brought huge success to guys like The Weeknd and JMSN in recent years.
