Fireboy DML - ELI [Single]
Today, Nigerian singer, songwriter, Fireboy DML, releases new single “ELI” produced by Pheelz via YBNL/EMPIRE Records. Described as the ‘future’ of Afrobeats, ELI is the follow up to the hit record “New York City Girl” and is the second single from Fireboy’s upcoming sophomore album Apollo releasing later next month.
“ELI” is a mid-tempo track that is carried by an Asian inspired flute and rounded out with an electric guitar giving an unexpected edge, unlike your typical Afrobeats flow. Fireboy, who is known to stand out, toggles between a soft, soothing beat and experimental elements lending to a new modern sound that emphasizes his vocal strength. The lyrics illustrate the longing he has for a woman different than anyone he has met before, how drawn he is to her and unable to pull himself away.
