“Don’t Tell ‘Em” is one of the hottest songs on radio, so it was only right we caught up with Jeremih…
HHW: Are you single right now?
JEREMIH: Yeah I’m single.
HHW: What are the qualities you look for in a woman?
JEREMIH: I just want a real one. I really ain’t on one type. I’m not really looking, you know. If she’s the one for me then she’ll just have to fall in my lap.
HHW: Ok so the “Hold You Down” video shoot with Chris Brown, Dj Khaled, and August Alsina — what memories come to mind when you think of that shoot?
JEREMIH: Just Khaled … that whole day, the vibe was dope! I saw what he was on with the acting tip, and the scenes that made it to the video were of course funny, but man, some of the ones that didn’t had the whole set cracking up!
HHW: We got to see you on Love & Hip-Hop. Given the chance, would you have done anything different and would you do reality tv again?
JEREMIH: I wouldn’t do anything different, but I didn’t know I would be on that show. I must admit it was a highlight as far as my fans being able to see me. So if it was a plus for the show I wouldn’t mind doing it again, it’ll be dope.
HHW: Now being from Chicago, you had the greats like Common, Kanye, and even R. Kelly to look up to. Tell us about theinfluences that came from your city…
JEREMIH: The world is classifying me as a singer right now because thats what I do, but from Ye to Twista, everybody influenced me. I couldn’t help but listen to what the city had embraced at the time. Now Kells, he was a heavy influence to not only me, but in my opinion everybody’s music, and if you look at it no one since has come within the R&B genre and made it to his plateau. I can’t really think of anyone [else], so just to be next since Kells is a good feeling.
