Fireboy is a musical genius, most especially in the area of songwriting, for which he is most known.
In this article, you will find top 5 songs on which Fireboy DML flexes his lyrical skills.
‘Jealous‘ was the song that made Fireboy a star. It was also his first official song as a YBNL act. ‘Jealous’ is a love song centered around obsession. On it, Fireboy sings about a girl who has enchanted him with her charms. ‘Just one taste and am wanting more, Shawty’, he sings obsessively about the girl in the first verse.
Quotable lyrics: ‘Ghana girl with the melanin, take it easy sho fe pami ni, I wanna have you forever omo your loving is all I need, girl am falling, falling for you o falling, yeh and am calling, calling on you o calling’.
Released in 2021, ‘Peru‘ was the career-changing song for Fireboy; it would eventually get a remix from British singer Ed Sheeran. Produced by ace Nigerian producer Shizzi, ‘Peru’ is a feel-good song whose lyrics are different from other songs by Fireboy. In an interview he revealed that he recorded ‘Peru’ while tipsy.
Quotable lyrics: ‘won ni won wa mi, won ni won wa mi, I’m in San Francisco jamming, won ni won wa mi, won ni won wa mi, I just flew in from Miami’.
3. Need You
‘Need You‘ is a song off Fireboy’s debut album. It’s about wanting to be with one’s lover desperately. Fireboy expresses love in a unique way on this song. On the pre-chorus he sings, ‘pe mi l’oruko, fa mi n’irugbon, nko ton so koma ni itumo, don’t listen to them you don’t need rumors’. It’s no surprise why this song was everybody’s favorite when LTG dropped.
Quotable lyrics: ‘You know I miss you like an idiot, misses the point I need you like eko needs moi moi, can’t do without you girl like two sides of a coin oh coin oh ahh, we made love more than memories, but in my song you’re my melody, you’re the only one that can be there for me, I need you now more than ever’.
2. Champion (Featuring D Smoke)
‘Champion’, featuring American rapper D Smoke, came off Fireboy’s sophomore album titled ‘Apollo‘. On ‘Champion’ Fireboy speaks about how he breaks suddenly into the music industry and how he has been smashing every song he got on. The lyrics of the song center on self-confidence, self-assurance, and hope’.
Quotable lyrics: ‘I be King, I’m the best my generation ever seen, I came suddenly I be like NEPA bill, and ever since, I never miss, I’ve been smashing I’ve been killing everything, from Ikeja to Ojuelegba beach, to the many places that I’ve never been’.
‘Glory‘ is the outro of ‘Playboy‘, the latest album from Fireboy. ‘Glory’ is so, so emotional. The lyrics give a sneak peek into Fireboy’s life before fame and at the same time, his struggles as a superstar, like working through pain. In addition, they give every hustler the feel that it’s not over until it’s over! In one word, this is a motivational song.
Quotable lyrics: ‘cause I remember when I dey hustle inside Lagos, I remember me and my brothers omo we been dey together, all the suffer wey we suffer for the cheddar, never say never, oh when I remember all the motherfucking liars and pretenders, dem dey try me but I tell them back to sender, now I did it and I’m gonna live forever’.
