Two years ago, Def Jam introduced the world to Jeremih. Early in the spring of 2009, he released his debut single, "Birthday Sex." The song quickly became a hit on the radio, but Jeremih's follow-ups did little-to-nothing to make an impact. Before the summer of 2009, he was all but forgotten.

Despite the poor reception in 2009, Jeremih returned to the studio and he began recording his next album. The album was set for a 2010 release. He released the "Down on Me" single, but it had little traction. But, 50 Cent soon recorded verses for the song and it took off, becoming the official version.

The song was released in December and is currently one of the biggest hits of the spring season. Previously, 50 Cent took credit for saving Jeremih's career. According to the G-Unit CEO, Def Jam was going to drop Jeremih from the label if he could not come up with a hit. Seeing what was going to happen, 50 Cent decided to step up and save his career.

Regardless of what happened, Jeremih has enjoyed nearly five months of consistent radio play with only one single. With this type of staying power, imagine what the future holds for Jeremih's next single.
