Shlohmo And Jeremih Collaborate On “Bo Peep (Do U Right)”

When we first heard Shlohmo’s remix of Jeremih’s “Fuck U All The Time” back in October of last year, we were admittedly more than a little giddy to hear one of our favorite producers (and a transcendent talent) take on one of the most dynamic bedroom tracks from one of the best albums (fuck a mixtape) of 2012. When we heard that the two were actually collaborating though, lawdy lawdy did our jaws drop. Coming together as part of Yours Truly’s Songs From Scratch series, Shlohmo and Jeremih got together at Daddy Kev and Nocando’s brand new Cosmic Zoo studio in Los Angeles for a session and produced the immaculate “Bo Peep (Do U Right)”. Beyond the absolutely brilliant melody and shmanging production, the most remarkable aspect of “Bo Peep (Do U Right)” is that neither artist is forced to bend or change their style one bit. The track could have easily fit on Shlohmo’s recent Laid Out EP and even more fittingly on Jeremih’s Late Nights tape. Shlohmo’s dense, dissociative beat work and jarring percussion meshes instantly with Jeremih’s soaring falsetto and longing choruses and the results are as emotive as anything we’ve heard from the R&B realm in the past few years. Anything short of a full length collaboration between these two would be a travesty. Before we get to that though, you can stream and download “Bo Peep (Do U Right)” below and catch the two performing in San Francisco and Los Angeles next weekend (April 5 and 6.
