“Dope”- Jeremih & Shlohmo

Jams

I’m pretty sure Jeremih is still best known for his birthday presents, but over the last year couple of years he’s been making a quiet resurgence by popping up on the radio hits here and there while releasing mixtapes. “Dope” comes from the collaborative EP No More with L.A. producer Shlohmo behind the soundscapes. The concept of a lover being addictive like a drug you need a needle for isn’t new but it’s usually effective. This is another one of those cases. Distorted background vocals follow Jeremih’s yearning lyrics across the sparse beat for a little under three minutes. By the end of the song it sounds like a lonely creepy obsession but the guy happens to have a sly voice with a falsetto hook. An unsuspecting victim of when the good good is too good.
