Hear Jeremih and Shlohmo Deliver Dark R&B on ‘Bo Peep (Do U Right)’
Pair shine on impromptu song recorded for video series
At the top of the month, we shared studio footage of Chicago R&B singer Jeremih and Los Angeles bedroom beatist Shlohmo crafting a “Song From Scratch” for San Francisco video visionaries Yours Truly. Past entries to the series have found Danny Brown linking up with AraabMuzik, and Angel Haze collaborating with TNGHT’s Lunice, but this latest installment is by far the most soulful. The pair’s impromptu succulent slow jam can now be heard in full below, and it makes a clear case for these two working together on the regular. Shlohmo, who lovingly remixed Jeremih’s “Fuck U All the Time” last year, provides a cavernous space filled with drippy effects, dramatic synths and skittering drums. Meanwhile, Jeremih lays down layers and layers of gorgeously swirling vocals promising the titular “Bo Peep” that he’s gonna do her (“U”) right. In other news, Shlohmo just released an excellent EP called Laid Up (featuring How to Dress Well) and Jeremih is due to drop his his Thumpy Johnson LP sometime this year.
