‘Don’t Tell Em’: Jeremih Flies Flag For R&B With Top 40 Single

Published: Sunday 10th Aug 2014 by David


Congratulations are most certainly in order for Universal’s Def Jam!

That’s right, after taking Iggy Azalea‘s ‘Fancy’ to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and making a commercially viable star out of the once obscure Jhene Aiko, the label have bagged themselves another smash hit with Jeremih‘s latest effort!

How the R&B star is flying the flag for the genre on the ‘Hot 100’?

Good news below!

Thanks to support secured by ‘Top 40’ and ‘Rhythmic’ stations, the singer’s ‘Don’t Tell Em’ has slithered up the chart and now sits at #30, rising 10 spots in the last week and now sees him stand as the highest charting R&B male on the tally as it stands today.

Lifted from his third LP ‘Late Nights‘, the single marks the latest R&B jam to push the genre’s commercial revival, coming after Ciara‘s 2013 hit ‘Body Party’ surpassed sales of half a million units in the US alone and Jhene Aiko‘s ‘Sail Out’ spawned the unavoidable number ‘The Worst.’

Elsewhere, proving that her star power extends far beyond British walls is Rita Ora, whose Iggy Azalea-led ‘Black Widow’ rises ten spots to claim the #19 spot, now just 18 positions from showing up at #1’s door!

Should ‘Widow’ top the chart, it would stand as Rita’s first US #1 single and Iggy’s second, following the release of ‘Fancy‘, which peaked atop the chart with a little help from Clear Channel’s ‘On the Verge’ program.

      Tinashe still dancing like the Tin Man?

    • Darien Azalea August 10, 2014

      Rita’s album slayed in the UK and she has four #1 singles in her domestic market. What does Tinashe have? Rita is a household name in her country and has her own clothing line and has gotten all of this in just two years. Tinashe can’t even go through one performance without f****** up a dance move.

      • SipTheTruth August 10, 2014

        I could get 4 number ones in the uk with the backing of jay z. Where is she in the usa? Boop.

      • chiiile August 10, 2014

        Yeah PAYOLA hits. Why isn’t she an arena artist yet?

        Nicki was an arena artist in the UK after 2 albums. Drake is an arena artist in the UK.

        Where is Rita’s arena tour? How many albums has she sold???

        SEllout Jayz should put his money in more rap artists. Real rappers sell albums…. not just singles

    SO Def Jam ( hip hop label) decided to push a black artist now. LOL

    Well good luck to him but we know Def Jam aint booking him for no awards shows anytime soon. His music is too black for Def Jam now. LOL

    Oh and Rita is not a star. Good voice but norhing more than a Gwen copycat artist. Smart girl tho. She is making money from her 15 minutes

    Jeremih definitely deserves more recognition. This song is a banger.

    At one point, the label isn’t going to do everything, it’s time for him to go out there and make a name for himself. Most people know his songs but don’t know him.

    He always comes out with a hit or 2 when he releases an album.
