Jeremih & YG Serve Up Sexy Club Hit with ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’
One of the biggest questions on rap fans’ minds right now is how long can DJ Mustard keep recycling the same beat before everyone gets bored? The answer: for a little while longer, especially if he keeps churning out heaters like this.
The latest in the burly West Coast hitmaker’s plan for club dominance features his trusty receiver-of-hot-beats YG, and also Chicago crooner Jeremih, who finally looks ready to assume his rightful title as one of R&B’s brightest stars.
The pair join forces for ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em,’ a sizzling platter of hyphy-trance which interpolates Snap!’s 1992 dance hit, ‘Rhythm is a Dancer‘ (this isn’t the first time this year Jeremih has pulled this stunt; he reworked Aqua’s insufferable ‘Barbie Girls’ hook on Ludacris’ ‘Party Girls‘).
YG shows up for the customary obnoxious rap verse, which sounds like a natural follow-on from ‘My Krazy Life’ cuts such as ‘Who Do You Love?,’ but it’s Jeremih and his sweet-as-South American sugarcane vocals that’ll be placing the song on the Billboard Hot 100.
