Fireboy has had a phenomenal year; he’s broken records and set new trends even with no new album.
When he released Peru on July 21, 2021, it was initially a freestyle for fun. But the song soon sparked a fire globally, racking up almost 200 million streams home and abroad.
The song also inspired a viral trend on TikTok, with fans doing a new version of the ‘swipe’ challenge that reigned during the quarantine period.
Of course, we all know Peru caught the attention of four-time Grammy winner Ed Sheeran who told legendary singer John Elton in an interview that he ‘plays the song all the time at home’ and ‘couldn’t get it out of his head.’
That obsession led to the Peru Remix, which Fireboy has blessed us with. We’d already heard a snippet earlier in the week, but the full version is way better than anyone could have expected. And African fans are not just loving it; they’re giving Ed kudos for a job nicely done and warming up to him again many years after he first became a big deal here through the massive hit ‘Shape of You’.
What do you think about the remix?
