Peru Remix: Fireboy DML features Ed Sheeran
Grammy-winning British singer, Ed Sheeran has been featured on the remix of Nigerian singer, Fireboy DML’s hit single, Peru.
Sheeran made this known while speaking with music legend, Elton John on Rocket Hour on Apple Music 1.
The Shape of You hitmaker was invited to discuss the release of the pair’s brand-new Christmas single, ‘Merry Christmas’ and how they first decided to collaborate on a festive track.
Speaking on how he got to work with Fireboy, Sheeran said that a friend reached out to him to record a verse on the song.
“So I got sent this a week ago, to remix it. Someone, a friend of mine, Jamal [Edwards] who runs SBTV sent it to me.
“He said, “Fireboy DML would love you on the remix of this song.” And I’ve just found it really intriguing. So I recorded a verse for it… and it’s a song that’s blowing up in Nigeria and Ghana at the moment and their club scene runs over Christmas.
“So you basically put a song to the club in the middle of December, which would seem a weird thing to do in England. But yeah, so I’ve done the remix for this song, but this is the original and it’s just, it’s an earworm, and it’s addictive, and I’m obsessed with it. I mean, Cherry will tell you, I’ve had this song on repeat constantly in the house for the last week,” he said.
