Fireboy DML has been the frontman of Olamide’s YBNL label since the video for “Jealous” gave the single a new breath of life and engraved the song’s catchy melody into the subconscious of Nigerian music lovers. The singer has followed up with a new single, “What if I Say”, piling on the storm as he shows off his melodic chops and the romantic narrative he excels in.
His confident performance on “What If I Say” is a lesson on serenading your way into a love interest’s heart, cleverly leading with teasing questions before sweetly admitting, “I want you”, and asking, “Give me Love Oh”. His romantic performance is built atop a layered mid-tempo beat Pheelz produces mixing percussion, ambient synth harmonies, and a catchy drum riff. The song comes package with a TG Omori-directed video that follows Fireboy DML on his romantic persuits of his love interest, basking in the glow of romance and sunlight.
