Fireboy DML taps 21 Savage & Blxst for another Peru Remix

Another befitting remix for a memorable track.

Fireboy DML’s “Peru” is the gift that keeps on giving. After taking over the Nigerian charts and warming its way into our hearts and ears last year, Fireboy DML has now followed up with the song’s second official remix, this time featuring American rappers, 21 Savage and Blxst. The illustrious singer released the song’s original version in July last year and treated fans to an early Christmas gift—releasing the second re-up featuring UK music icon Ed Sheeran—on Christmas Eve.

Since its release, the remix with Ed Sheeran enjoyed astounding success in the UK. Peaking at number one on Apple Music’s UK songs chart and making its way to several charts in the country, the remix also earned him a coveted debut on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this week.

The “Peru” singer is certainly not losing any steam as he teams up with two American artists to widen the reach of the song and bolster its current standing on the Billboard Hot 100. Without departing from the catchiness of the song’s original version, the new remix features stellar additions from Blxst and 21 Savage who make the song a more enjoyable listening experience. “Say she love me but I’m deaf/Lace front but she like her beats Afro,” raps 21 Savage on the song’s third verse, interspersing his gruffy hard-hitting flows with the song’s rhythmic production.

Interestingly, he’s currently on his debut US headlining tour—which started on February 3 in Providence Rhode Island and will come to a close on February 28 in Seattle, Washington.
