Nigerian Afrobeats sensation Fireboy DML returns with his third studio album, Playboy, following the success of his hit singles “Peru,” amongst others.

With the release of his now-iconic album, Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps in 2019, the 26-year-old artist made his mark on the music industry, with hits like “Jealous” and “Scatter.” Fireboy’s latest album, possibly his finest to date, shows a lot of improvement.

Nigerian Afrobeats star Fireboy DML has released his third studio album, Playboy.

In a recent interview with OkayAfrica, Fireboy said: “Last year, I was practically lost creatively. I kept on making music sporadically, and in July, I took my first trip to the United States. I took a walk in New York City with a cigarette stick in my hand, didn’t smoke it, just kept walking for about fifteen minutes; nobody recognised or looked at me twice, or gave a fuck about me, and that walk of freedom opened my mind I just felt so free.”

Adding: “I took that energy with me to Miami, went to a strip club, had the time of my life and then to San Francisco where I made ‘Peru’. Recording [that song] opened my eyes and gave me a sense of direction and I knew it was time for a new album.”
