"This is like Late Nights: The Mixtape, Volume 2.0. I just wanted to hit the same emotions and blend the different sonics of hip-hop and R&B in a similar way." Late Nights is Jeremih's 3rd studio album, originally released in December of 2015. At 15 tracks long, the record is characterized by a velvety & seductive after-hours vibes ("so, so, so fuckin' wasted / so, so, so fuckin' high, it's amazing that we made it, we gon' take this past the sky."), with Jeremih turning out irresistible falsetto melodies and big guests adding their signature touches. The the chart-topping singles are obviously great: "Don't Tell 'Em," "Planez," "Pass Dat" and "Oui." But there is not a filler on this meticulously put together effort, as tracks like "Planez," "Impatient," "Royalty," "Paradise" and "Worthy" showcase Jeremih's versatility and confirm his status as one of the best, catchiest voices in R&B. J.Cole, Ty Dolla $ign, Migos, Future, Big Sean, YG, Juicy J, Twista, & Jhene Aiko make guest appearances.
