Nigerian singer-songwriter Fireboy DML released his hit track "Peru" over the summer that would catch the attention of megastar Ed Sheeran. The British singer spoke with Elton John on the Pop icon's "Rocket Hour," saying that he found "Peru" to be "very intriguing." Sheeran and Fireboy collaborated on the track's remix where Sheeran is heard singing a few words in Yorùbá. “It has been a dream knowing Ed Sheeran is a fan of my sound and having him jump on a song that was inspired by me travelling the world,” Fireboy DML remarked in a press release. “Not only is this an exciting moment for me, but also Afrobeats. I hope this is the first of many collaborations with Ed and other artists around the globe, and I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy this song during the holidays.” Last year, Fireboy DML released his breakout sophomore album Apollo. Since then, he’s stopped by "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" to perform a special medley and teamed up with D Smoke for the single “Champion.” Fireboy DML will embark on his first U.S. headlining tour early next year. The Apollo Tour kicks off on February 3 in Providence, Rhode Island and sees him performing in major cities before wrapping up on February 28 in Seattle, Washington.
