When Jaguar Productions and the University of South Alabama’s Student Government Association were considering who to book for their spring concert, they surveyed the student body — which chose the smooth rhythm and blues sounds of Jeremih to highlight their spring event.

This Chicago-based artist has played many roles in his career, including singer-songwriter, producer, rapper and producer. Jeremih broke into the public spotlight through his catchy, sensual anthem “Birthday Sex.”

Jeremih is giving lovers another reason to get close, turn the lights down low and groove through the night. His latest single, “I Think of You” (featuring Chris Brown and Big Sean), is highlighted by lighthearted funk rhythms and Jeremih’s sweet vocal flow.

In addition to steady rotation on radio, Jeremih is giving his fans a chance to enhance their “I Think of You” experience through a contest. Those who stream “I Think of You” will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a “pantygram” from the vocalist himself.
