Jeremih has pulled a smart move and renamed his third album which was originally titled Thumpy Johnson. The Def Jam singer, who is enjoying the success of his hit single ‘Don’t Tell Em’, told XXL that the LP will now be called Late Nights: The Album. It is inspired by his hugely popular 2012 mixtape Late Nights.
“The last body of work I put out was Late Nights,” said Jeremih. “I still feel like how I was feeling when I recorded that. I was traveling, up late nights, recording all the time. It just felt like every record was catering to… I imagined if it was a big bed in the club, everybody would be in one big ass orgy off of all the songs [on the LP]. My first two albums I was making sad songs. I don’t feel like that no more. I was in a relationship then. I’m single as hell right now. You’re getting the best of my last single years.” [Laughs]
Late Nights: The Album is due on September 30th.
