Jeremih Says He Has ‘No Issues’ With PARTYNEXTDOOR’ After Joint Tour Fiasco
Last year, Jeremih and PARTYNEXTDOOR embarked on a co-headlining 'Summer’s Over Tour' that quickly turned into a disaster. The friction between Jeremih and PND led to two strange incidents on the trek. In Houston, a stunt double was badly lip-syncing Jeremih’s songs and at another show, Jeremih left the stage after performing two songs. Finally, Jeremih called out PND at a show in Dallas, Texas, and was later booted off the tour.
Since then, Jeremih has been quiet about what really happened during his joint trek with PND - until now. In an interview with Complex, the "Oui" singer sets the record straight.
"I don't have no issues with Party. That was my first tour, besides the J. Cole tour, that I had been on. There's a lot that I had to learn," Jeremih tells Complex about his disagreement with PND. "And it was one of those things where our teams had differences, not necessarily me and him. Ain't nothing against me or Party right now. If I bumped into him right now, I don't think it'd be too much of any beef. It's just kind of one of those situations where, you know, there's a lot of— show by show, it was starting to be a lot of differences that I started to notice, and I just couldn't take that anymore."
Despite his tour fiasco with PND, Jeremih is still opened to do a joint tour with any artist.
"I'm definitely open to co-tour with anyone that I'm rockin with," he said. "If it was up to me, my essential tour this year would be me, Big Sean, and Chris Brown. We could probably kill for the whole year. But that's just me."
Jeremih is currently working on his new project Later That Night, which has no release date as of yet. The 29-year-old singer just dropped "I Think of You," the set's first single. The infectious song features a bassline that's somewhat resembles Montell Jordan's "Get It On Tonite" but isn't a sample.
"You know what, I saw that but I never heard Montell [on the song]," said Jeremih. "I've been seeing people post [about Montell Jordan], and I had to go back and listen to the song myself and I could hear similarities with the beat, but it's actually not a Montell Jordan sample. I'm curious to see how that's going to work out, as far as his camp goes and what they might believe. As for my understanding, it's not a Montell Jordan sample."
