Last summer, Fireboy stormed his way into mainstream appeal with his catchy single, “Jealous” and since then, he’s only proved his appeal with each new release. Since he dropped his debut album, Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps last year, he’s been relatively quiet even though the project’s standouts are still dominating the charts. Now, he’s released his first single since, “New York City Girl”, in keeping with his usual energy and it’s a bop.
In addition to his vocal prowess, Fireboy’s lyrical dexterity is what sets him apart and allows him the range to pull of many different sounds. He doesn’t fall short of his usual glory on this new track, and against a catchy Type A-produced beat, he confesses his feelings for a fine girl from New York City, appealing that she reciprocates before she leaves for the summertime. Much like “Jealous”, this track is primed to be the song of the summer and has been set up for the perfect singalong.
For the accompanying video, Fireboy is making his way around an animated New York City both alone and with his girl. The vibrant and innovative video matches the song’s appeal and makes it even more exciting to listen to, as we see the pair amorously engaged while he performs the affectionate song.
