Lagos based singer songwriter Fireboy DML has come through with his first release of the year, ‘Someone’, via YBNL and Empire. The track explores the artist’s connection to love and relationships, whilst Fireboy also embarks on a new sound, combining his effortlessly smooth vocals with more club-ready production.

The track has also been released alongside a music video from Bruno Marin which features an acting cameo from the artist himself. The video follows Fireboy on his European tour and shows the trials and tribulations of maintaining a relationship with the tour lifestyle. The video does a good job of bringing to life the subject matter of the track, as Fireboy looks to step out of his comfort zone with a dialogue between him and his love interest.

After releasing his third studio album last year, the Nigerian native has achieved huge international success thanks to his breakout hit, ‘Peru’. The track has been streamed over 1.6 billion times and saw Fireboy receive a nomination for Best International Act at the BET Awards. Bringing in 2023 with a fresh new sound, Fireboy DML has the world at his feet, and it looks as if there will be no stopping his upward trajectory for the remainder of the year.
