Singer and YBNL signee, Adedamola Adefolahan, known professionally as Fireboy DML, has revealed that he was under the influence of alcohol on the night he recorded his hit single, ‘Peru.’
The 25-year-old said this during an interview with Deezer, which was published on Wednesday.
Fireboy said, “Peru was written and recorded in San Francisco, California.
"It was my first time in the United States and I was supposed to go and see my associates at the empire and just vibe; pay a courtesy visit to Shizzi who produced the song in his studio.
“At the studio that night, I was tipsy and I just got in the booth. He played the beat. I was like, ‘Um, that’s a vibe.’ And in 30 minutes to 35 minutes, I was literally just singing my story.
"It’s just a young boy that found himself in a new place and is willing to just try out new stuff.”
Fireboy also noted that British singer Ed Sheeran was excited about making the remix of the song with him.
‘Peru’ remix currently peaks at Number one on the UK Apple Music, beating Mariah Carey’s’ All I Want for Christmas’ song and Adele’s ‘Easy On Me.’
