Fireboy DML’s ‘Play Boy,’ is an emergence and full embrace of a newborn superstar.

At this point, Fireboy has nothing to prove. His new album completes the trifecta, with his debut album “Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps” that bore claims of his star power, his ability to croon compelling tracks, and with his second album “Apollo” he cemented his sound as one of the rising stars ready for superstardom. Now, he is proudly embracing his strengths and showing the world why he’s a superstar on the new album “Play Boy.”

Fireboy DML’s coast is expanding by the day as his records and the appeal now cuts across many countries, with one of those notable crossovers being “Peru,” which also had a more lovely remix with the global superstar Ed Sheeran. The song would later go on to become one of Fireboy’s biggest records in his career.

On the opener of his new album, on the track “Change,” Fireboy DML confesses that he won’t stop until it’s over, which entails his rise to superstardom, becoming a global superstar, and facing new challenges that come with his newfound star power. I wonder what the next phase of his career would be, perhaps what the next album would sound like for the 26-year-old, Adedamola Adefolahan popularly known as Fireboy DML.

On the Afro-pop inflected “Bandana,” assisted by Asake, the groove shines, and of course, they have chemistry but that unity can’t be compared to the Rema-assisted “Compromise.” The beauty of ‘Compromise‘ runs deep, it flares Rema’s ability to seamlessly take down any beat. It talks about a love interest that seems faithful to some extent. On, “Diana,” Chris Brown assisted track with Jamaican Shenseea, who brings a fresh mix of both English and Jamaican patios upon the wonderful Phantom-produced track. The song was influenced by another of Fireboy’s love interests called Diana, which he pleads to stay.

The P.Priime produced “Adore,” features the American Hip-hop fresh man Euro. Although it’s a beautiful track that can still appeal to the audience which it is set out to just as “Peru” remix with Ed Sheeran had done earlier, the latter might not be as big. Meanwhile, the album has a couple of stands outs which like “Ashawo,” that can become a club pleaser over time, which can possibly leave everyone present at the club including this writer to scream “no be my fault e oo/na shayo/na all of us be ashawo.”

Glory,” is also a beautiful closer indeed, it leaves DML threading on newer sonic waters and that would allow me to acclaim “Peru” and its remix with Ed Sheeran on this album as standouts also. Finally, per se, this album is just a man embracing his superstar, being himself fully and living in the moment alongside basking in the euphoria even as he steps into his superstardom moments.
