Listen To Fireboy DML’s New Single “Playboy”

Ahead of his forthcoming project

Since the release of his breakout single, “Jealous” in 2019, Fireboy DML’s growth has been nothing short of an astronomical success. He came into the game, ready and certain to showcase his skills while having a good time, as he did on his omnivorous debut album ‘Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps,’ and its 2020 follow-up ‘APOLLO’.

Back then, Fireboy DML shared in a NATIVE Exclusive interview that the output fans could see was hard work and dedication, 12 years in the making. Today, his dedication has not skipped a beat, as his work continues to flow with a strong belief in himself and his abilities, even earning him the title of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Rookie recently.

With just three months into the year, Fireboy DML is already teasing the release of his third studio album. Already, he’s given us a peak into this world with the release of the Ed Sheeran-assisted “Peru Remix” and its 21 Savage and BLXST-follow up. Hot off the back of his appearance on Madonna’s “Frozen” and his American tour, Fireboy DML shares new single “Playboy.” 

The Bizzouch-produced track is an uptempo record which sees the artist in a more relaxed light. He unfolds the playful and flirty side as he sings over the mellifluous production of the track, with lyrics such as, “girl, don’t flex with the boy, your body is a mad ting, she wanna roll with the mandem/when i drop, yunno it’s an anthem.” In the same breath, he subtly appreciates the physique of his muse while making braggadocious claims about his current standing in the game, how far he has come and how he should be respected. 

Just as we predicted back in 2020, Fireboy DML is ready for his next level. The artist himself echoed this in a tweet, sharing moments before the song’s release that he was at the beginning of a new era. Given his recent success, including “Peru” becoming certified gold in the UK, it’s clear that Fireboy DML has hacked the winning formula and is forging ahead in this new era with unshakeable confidence.
