Jeremih’s ‘The Chocolate Box’ EP Is Sweet and Soulful [STREAM]
We haven’t heard from Jeremih in awhile, but he’s back with a new EP titled The Chocolate Box. Although the collection is short and sweet with just only four songs, it’s worthy of your attention.
The R&B loverman takes listeners back to the ‘90s on two of the standout tracks on the EP. On “Cards Right,” Jeremih samples Bobby Brown’s “Rock Wit’Cha,” to deliver a sumptuous love ballad that caters to the ladies. On "Forever I'm Ready," he reworks H-Town's "Knockin' Da Boots" into his own love anthem.
But Jeremih also delivers contemporary songs like "SMTS" (Suck Me to Sleep), where he salutes his lover's fellatio skills over a melodic, trap music-inspired beat. On "Nympho," the Chicago crooner sing sexy talk over a minimalistic bass-heavy production.
In addition to The Chocolate Box EP, Jeremih also has plans to drop a 21-song collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign called MihTy.
There's no word on a release date for the project, but Ty Dolla $ign told Billboard that it's "basically done" and they are waiting for sample clearances to be approve before moving forward. Studio wizard Hitmaka (aka Yung Berg), who produced the project, told Joe Budden on his podcast that the joint project features "21 songs of greatness."
