2019 was the year Fireboy broke out with a single that had existed months before it afforded him fame, a well-delayed blessing you might call it. Jealous and it’s offshoots were a catalyst for the singer and in no time, he shared with us his debut album, Laughter, Tears and Goosebumps- a 2019 standout. Leading the 13-track album is Need You and while the entire project continues to make waves, he shares the video for the fan-favorite.
The Clarence Peters directed video which visualizes more than the track’s narratives and goes deep into Fireboy’s journey opens with a scene that captures the abbreviation ‘YBNL’ on a car’s plate and then morphs into another that highlights the name ‘Fireboy DML’ before it proceeds to the main theme with Fireboy and his muse jetting off into sunset and a plot twist that leaves his viewers stunned for the rest of the dramatic video.
Cast in warm and retro hues, Fireboy delivers a performance that indicates his penchant for heartfelt performances.
