During a chat via Apple Music’s ‘Rocket Hour’ platform with Elton John, Ed Sheeran revealed that he is obsessed with Fireboy DML’s ‘Peru’ and would hop on the remix this December.
Ed Sheeran stated that a friend sent the original song to him, telling him that Fireboy would love to have him on the remix. He said that though he has recorded his verse, the original song has been on constant repeat.
Speaking on how he got to work with Fireboy, Sheeran says that, “So I got sent this a week ago, to remix it. Someone, a friend of mine, Jamal [Edwards] who runs SBTV sent it to me.
“”He said, “Fireboy DML would love you on the remix of this song.” And I’ve just found it really intriguing. So I recorded a verse for it… and it’s a song that’s blowing up in Nigeria and Ghana at the moment and their club scene runs over Christmas.
“So you basically put a song to the club in the middle of December, which would seem a weird thing to do in England. But yeah, so I’ve done the remix for this song, but this is the original and it’s just, it’s an earworm, and it’s addictive, and I’m obsessed with it. I mean, Cherry will tell you, I’ve had this song on repeat constantly in the house for the last week.”
Meanwhile, Fireboy DML has narrated how he struggled to finish his studies at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) because of his music career.
