The best of Jeremih's "Late Nights" period.

From lustrous, catchy Late Nights to the private jet sex vibes of Late Nights: The Album to trappy, indulgent Late Nights: Europe, Jeremih has bestowed upon humanity a R&B trilogy that will bask in internet glory forever.

The Chicago crooner has more than a nice voice and a nice pen (R&B game Keats with the pen) -- he possess a unique sonic vision that exists in conversation with the modern pop zeitgeist. 

Click through the gallery to revisit highlights from Jeremih's "Late Nights" trilogy. 


"Fuck U All The Time" feat. Natasha Mosley

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

Jeremih's music is often slow-paced but there is never a dull moment because he likes to take risks. Mosley's slammed vibrato on the chorus is what makes this song. 

"Ahh Shit" feat. Fabolous

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

Ah shit.

Never has the phrase "Ahh shit" been delivered with such tonal dexterity. Within those two syllables, Jeremih takes about six different melodic turns and in the process communicates utter confidence.

"Go To The Mo"

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

"Go To The Mo" encapsulates what is so great about Jeremih. He sings about such topics as dirty, disgusting, motel sex with nothing but dignity and poise.

"773 Love"

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

In case you thought Mike WiLL Made-It wasn't the most versatile producer in the game.

"Planez" feat. J Cole (prod. Frank Dukes and Vinylz)

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

Maybe Jeremih's best song ever, despite J Cole's best attempts to ruin everything. "Dick so big it's like a foot is in your mouth"... dude.

"oui"

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

"oui" is bursting with life, full of ideas, and a bit all over the place. Jeremih's velveteen voice, motivated partly by true love, partly by raw carnal desire, rests at the song's core and holds its pieces together with ease.

"Impatient" feat. Ty Dolla $ign

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

"Impatient" is a song of extremes -- the 808s below, the roiling winter of Jeremih's discontent that he is not presently getting laid, and his falestto hook that drifts like an innocent vapor high above.

"Don't Tell Em" feat. YG

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

"Don't Tell Em" was originally released in June 2014, eighteen months before Late Nights: The Album. It may be a glossy, radio-friendly club anthem but it never fails to get the blood pumping.

"British Headboards"

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

Combining the expertly deployed harmonies of "773 Love" with the intimate minimalism of "woosah," British Headboards" is kinda like its lecherous cousin, Ty$'s "Or Nah," but with more game.

"Copenhagen" feat. Sonyae

The 10 Best Songs From Jeremih's "Late Nights" Trilogy

Late Nights: Europe was conceived in the stripped-down tradition of LN: The Album. "Copenhagen" is a standout in part because it is comparatively lush, a pleasing change of pace as Jeremih enters into an uptempo flow, giving listeners more to love.
