British singer Ed Sheeran got fans thrilled when he decided to team up with Nigerian singer Fireboy DML as he sang the Yoruba part of the viral “Peru” song.
The Grammy Award-winning singer had earlier announced that he will appear on Fireboy DML’s ‘Peru’ remix in December
Ed Sheeran revealed this during a 15-minute chat with Elton John on Apple Music’s ‘Rocket Hour’ platform, adding that he’s obsessed with ‘Peru’ and finds it addictive.
Sheeran explained how he came to work with Fireboy, saying, “So I got sent his song ‘Peru’ a week ago, to remix it.” Someone, a friend of mine named Jamal [Edwards], who runs SBTV, forwarded it to me.
“He said, ‘Fireboy DML would love you on the remix of this song,’ and I found it intriguing.” So I recorded a verse for it, and it’s a song that’s currently blowing up in Nigeria and Ghana, and their club scene runs through Christmas.”
“So you put a song to the club in the middle of December, which seems unusual in England. But yeah, so I did the remix for this song, but the original is just an earworm, it’s addictive, and I’m obsessed with it.
“I mean, Cherry will tell you, I’ve had this song on repeat in the house for the last week.”
In a recent video, Ed Sheeran is seen singing in Yoruba as he and Fireboy prepare to release the remix version of Peru.
