Watch Jeremih’s music video for new single “Changes”

Jeremih is bringing back his luxurious R&B chops with “Changes,” his first new solo single in two years. “Read Your Mind,” the 2003 single from Avant, provides the basis for the beat from frequent Jeremih collaborator Hitmaka; the Chicago singer-songwriter slides comfortably back into his zone, bemoaning the distance he asked for in a relationship he didn’t realize was special until it was too late. It’s a buttery and smooth track even if Jeremih’s character is a bit of a cad. Hear it in the music video above.

“We all go back & forth sometimes with relationships and the various changes they can have,” Jeremih says of the song in a statement. “The ups, the downs, but the best change is having someone that’ll make you stop doing what you’re doing to focus on just that.”

“Changes” is the first single from Jeremih’s upcoming fourth studio album. Last August, he celebrated the 10th anniversary of his breakout project Late Nights With Jeremih. In 2020, Jeremih survived a life-threatening COVID-19 infection.
