Release Date: October 7
Label: Def Jam

Despite Jeremih cooking up heat for himself and others, a well-balanced album has eluded him. Late Nights: The Album, an extension of his excellent 2012 mixtape, is prepped to be that project. The album’s lead single, “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” peaked at No. 9 on the Hot 100 and has gotten steady play in clubs across the country. But he’s been on a roll all year: He blessed fellow Chicagoan Tink with the best song of her career so far and dropped an amazing EP with Calif. producer Shlohmo. It may finally be Jeremih's time to eat. —Damien Scott
