Nigerian Afrobeats artist Fireboy DML is wrapping up his first headline tour in the United States. After having a successful 2021 with his record “Peru” garnering over 30 million streams, the singer-songwriter kept the momentum going by having shows all throughout the country. So far the tour has attracted a lot of attention with Fireboy DML selling out multiple venues and surprising his audience with guest appearances including Afrobeat stars Omah Lay and Rotimi. Despite having only a few shows left, fans still have the opportunity to see him perform in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.
Fireboy DML released his first project Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps back in 2019. Two years later he dropped the single “Peru" leading his music to be recognized worldwide. In addition to “Peru " becoming a viral song on TikTok, the international hit record helped him secure a remix with Ed Sheeran and another version of the song featuring 21 Savage and Blxst.
“Peru” highlights Fireboy’s ability to make a Afrobeats love song, while other tracks like “Need You” and “Vibration" showcase his range in creating some songs centered on slow soothing chords and others that are up-tempo club anthems. Despite his solo success, the singer-songwriter expressed in a recent Hot 97 interview that his music ultimately contributes to a "selfless cause to push the sound of [African] culture to the world. " All and all, we anticipate that there is more to come from Fireboy DML and we are excited to hear it.
