Zitat des Tages von Jeremih:
I work well under pressure. Actually, I love pressure.
Def Jam, they've shown nothing but love as far as supporting my records. We haven't missed yet, radio-wise, and every song that they've actually tried to support has been No. 1.
My competition keeps me driven. My family and son and being home in Chicago keeps me humble, and my fans. They're the reason why I'm going hard and making sure everyone knows how to say my name.
Chicago, we always had it. People just shied away because it's nothing businesswise from the industry. Everybody from Chi will go to N.Y.C. or L.A. - R. Kelly to Kanye to even Twista. Everybody is great from there, but it's nothing downtown.
Would I have signed to Def Jam if I knew they was deaf? Nah.
I can sing, don't get me wrong, but it's no belting singing.
If it was up to me, every show would start at midnight, and I'd give people the best of me.
I want to show people all of me, because that's what I haven't been doing. To be able to play so many instruments, and no one's ever seen me play, it seems like someone who's bluffing.
That's my ultimate goal: to get people to say my name right.
When I first got signed, I used to literally pick up a pen and pad. Write bars in my notes, even whole songs. Nowadays, I just go off the feeling.
I'm confident as hell when I step in front of the mic.
People send me records, and if don't like them, I won't do them; I don't care how much money you offer.
What I can offer the game is creating a sound that, when you hear it, you know it's mine.
I'm curious to know how many newborn babies will be named Jeremih after my second album.
Effortlessly, I feel like my records have longevity.
It messes me up sometimes when I go on stage and people say my name wrong. Say my name wrong with all these different syllables. I've heard everything. My name is easy as 1-2-3. Jer-eh-mih, syllable-wise.
I got archives of records. I have records from when I was 17 that I still think are pretty dope.
I'm from Chicago, so you know we come from juking and footwork.
I took about four or five years of French in high school, but I definitely don't speak French as well as I thought I did then.
I got my first set of drums when I was around 3. I went from band to marching band to Latin jazz band - it's like riding a bike.
