Fireboy DML has released a new version of his song “Peru,” which now includes Ed Sheeran. The original version of the hit single was released by the Nigerian singer-songwriter in July. Take a look at their collaboration below.
“Knowing Ed Sheeran is a fan of my sound and having him jump on a song that was inspired by my travels around the world has been a dream,” Fireboy DML said in a press release. “This is an exciting time not only for me, but also for Afrobeats.” I hope this is the first of many collaborations with Ed and other artists from around the world, and I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy this song over the holidays.”
Fireboy DML’s breakout sophomore album Apollo was released last year. Since then, he’s appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform a special medley and collaborated with D Smoke on the single “Champion.”
Fireboy DML will embark on his first headlining tour in the United States early next year. The Apollo Tour begins on February 3 in Providence, Rhode Island and will take him to major cities before concluding on February 28 in Seattle, Washington.
