The Grammy nominated singer was surprised with a dinner party to celebrate his third studio album becoming RIAA Certified Gold.

Jeremih’s manager, J. Erving, gathered the singer’s friends, family, and business associates for an intimate dinner to celebrate the singer’s accomplishment.

A great deal of the album’s success is attributed the Chicago native’s RIAA Double Platinum song, “Don’t Tell Em” featuring YG.

It’s been quite a successful year for Jeremih as he also found success with his single, “Planes” featuring J. Cole.

His manager J. Erving commented last night saying it was an honor to work with Jeremih.

“It’s an honor to manage an artist like Jeremih. I feel like he has proven that his sound can transcend across different genres of music and sell in this digital age,” Erving said.

Late Nights was released in December of 2015 via Def Jam Recordings and has done relatively well despite, early concerns from Jeremih’s camp that the the project wasn’t getting the proper publicity.

@DeafJamRecords y’all don’t even deserve my voice,” Jeremih said in December via Tweets that have since been deleted. “It’s not the fact that mi album was actually priced 18.99.”

“There’s actually no CD’s in the stores to even buy, that’s the main point. each Best Buy was shipped 6-7 copies a peice,” he continued on. “We checked in to the Corperate offices at Best Buy in Chicago and they told us LateNights wasn’t on this wks added shipment list ,nor next weeks ?? #MyAlbumJustDroppedLastWeek” Jeremih said from his Twitter in mid-December.

For the time being, things appear to be going better with Def Jam and Jeremih as the R&B singer’s commercial for Apple TV appears to be picking up.

Jeremih’s track “Oui” made the Apple TV commercial entitled “The Kiss” that has over 3 million views on YouTube alone.
