Late last year, when he shared his stunning thirteen-track debut album, Laughter, Tears, And Goosebumps, Fireboy DML completely redefined the way debuts from rookies are perceived, slinging his critically appraised vocals and sensational delivery style as his weapons of choice to fully break into mainstream. While he’s kept the album alive with videos for some of its standouts, he’s been silent on the music front. In what is considered an unprecedented move, however, he returns today in typical Fireboy DML fashion, aloof to the demands of mainstream music and of course, singing about love on New York City Girl.
Produced by Typical A, the Afropop love ballad is a resonant plea to a woman who has smitten to elope with him. New York City Girl is packed with all the elements of a summer anthem, from it’s engaging lyrics to it’s vibrant percussions and Foreboy’s signature charm.
