We are getting an Ed Sheeran remix to Fireboy DML’s “Peru”

The remix is coming soon

Since the release of his hit single, “Peru” earlier this year, Fireboy DML has been on a roll. Its near residency atop the Nigerian charts, since its release, has been more than enough proof of the song’s commercial viability and its growing reach in these parts.

Now, it seems that the song is getting a remix, just in time for the Christmas period with a surprising feature from British singer, Ed Sheeran. In a conversation with Elton John’s Rocket Hour on Apple Music 1 last weekend, Ed Sheeran teased details of his guest verse. Speaking about the new remix, the singer shared that he got sent the Fireboy DML single by a friend of his who runs SBTV. On hearing the track, Sheeran was instantly compelled to record a verse for the song and sent it over to the “Peru” artist.

“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.”

Sheeran’s “Peru” Remix will join a long line of recent cross-continental hits including Wizkid’s chart-topping Tems-assisted single “Essence” which caught the soulful ears of Justin Bieber and CKay’s “Love Nwantiti,” which has garnered several remixes since its viral moment earlier this summer. While there is no known release date for the “Peru” remix, fans can expect it any moment now as we currently enjoy the detty December szn. Watch this space!
