Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran Join Forces: It’s the collaboration you didn’t know you needed. Nigerian artist Fireboy DML and multi-Grammy winning singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran have released a great new single called “Peru.”

The song makes beautiful use of both of their emotive voices, over an Afrobeat backdrop. “It has been a dream knowing Ed Sheeran is a fan of my sound and having him jump on a song that was inspired by me traveling the world,” said Fireboy DML in a statement. “Not only is this an exciting moment for me, but also for Afrobeats. I hope this is the first of many collaborations with Ed and other artists around the globe, and I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy this song during the holidays.”

According to the press release, “Introduced with a rhythmic and mid-tempo touch of percussion, Fireboy echoes in singing ‘Peru, para.’ He tells the story of a woman that captures his soul then continues to grab his attention around the world as he travels from Jozi, Miami to San Francisco. With visuals directed by Gabriella Kingsley, Fireboy and Sheeran meet up at an exclusive warehouse party in London as Sheeran enters through a staircase singing, ‘pour up the bottle I wanna level up. When I’m with you I never get enough. Slow whine, I’m not in a rush”’offering a subtle dancehall influence to his signature vocals. Throughout the video the two feed off each other’s positive energy to create an unlikely but endearing duo.”
