Jeremih continues his comeback sprint following his collaboration with producer Shlomo on the No More EP, being featured on "Party Girls" with Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa and Cashmere Cat, and his other recent, and successful singles. Today we get Jeremih's nex single with a song featuring J. Cole, titled "Planes".
This song originally surfaced months back at a Chance The Rapper show; the track was supposed to see a feature from Chance himself but it looks like things have changed and J. Cole has taken on the role. I can imagine based off the clip we featured of the original Chance version that it must have been dope, but J. Cole did manage to step up here and kills it. This song blends hip-hop and R&B seamlessly for a song bringing out the best of both artists. Listen below and we will keep you updated on the official release. Enjoy!

Today we get the latest from the rapper / singer / actor for one of his most recent songs “Sober” off the Kauai EP. He brings the song to life singing to a girl waiting for her take-out food. It borders the line of cheesy and comedy featuring some outrageous dance moves from Gambino. The setting also reminds us of the diner in the ‘Sweatpants’ music video, making us wonder if that was Donald’s intention for connecting his videos. Enjoy!
