Chance the Rapper was the musical guest on last night's episode of "Saturday Night Live" with actor Chris Hemsworth as the host. Chance the Rapper performed two songs, including a new track entitled "Somewhere in Paradise" featuring fellow Chicagoan Jeremih. You can watch the full performance after the jump.
After linking up with Big Sean and Future for "Royalty" and Fabolous and Red Cafe on "Peace Sign," Jeremih marks his solo return with "Pass Dat". Although the release date for his long-gestating Late Nights album remains shrouded in mystery, Jeremih is giving his fans a few treats before the new year rolls in. Listen to "Pass Dat" after the jump.
The reclusive Jeremih has come out of the shadows today, revealing not one, but two new tracks. It must be a beautiful day wherever Jeremih is today. To be treated to a pair of Jeremih songs in a single day seems improbable, and not at all hyperbolic -- this is the guy who hasn't released a full length project since 2012 with his excellent Late Nights With Jeremih mixtape. Add in one cup of hit single (2014's "Don't Tell Em") and a dash of album anticipation (Late Nights, his first since 2010) and Jeremih has quickly generated a lot of hype. Here he's got Future and Big Sean to help give "Royalty" that extra oomph. It's a solid track, and along with "Oui" we're also hyped for the new Jeremih album here at iHipHop. Although it'll be some time until there's new info for Late Nights, we have "Royalty" to hold us over -- after the jump!
R. Kelly is linking up with two star-studden names in music for a cut from his new album, Buffet. ''Switch Up'', the latest offering from Kelly's forthcoming studio album -- his thirteenth overall -- features Lil Wayne and Jeremih, both who stop-by to assist the R&B legend. Check out ''Switch Up'' from R. Kelly after the jump, and mark your calendars for Buffet, dropping November 20th.
Lil Durk is sitting on a hit with "Like Me" from his debut album, Remember My Name. The kid's come a long, long way -- from the streets of Chicago to the big stage -- and it's nice to see someone getting out of trouble. Unfortunately the album isn't all that hot and I'm not feeling the new direction Durk has gone in. I prefer his work on Life Ain't Joke or the first installment to his Signed to the Streets mixtape series. Either way, "Like Me" is a pleasant enough track, and the additions of Jeremih, Lil Wayne and bona fide superstar Fetty Wap are good to set the track over. Listen to the remix of Durk's "Like Me" after the jump.
An unlikely feature for sure, Jeremih recruits man-of-the-hour J. Cole for his new single "Planes." Hot off the success of his DJ Mustard-produced "Don't Tell Em" (which now also has an official music video) Jeremih returns with "Planes" a track that will potentially be on his forthcoming, highly-anticipated Late Nights album. And although J. Cole is on "Planes" rumor has it that the feature spot initially belonged to Chance the Rapper. Do you think J. Cole fits here or would you rather have had Chance? You be the judge after the jump.
