For his debut album “Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps”, Fireboy DML delivers a mixture of emotions – a lover boy capable of getting you in your feelings and as well as bringing the heat.
Fireboy has been winning hearts and charts ever since breaking onto the music scene with his hit single “Jealous”.
Not relenting from the success of “Jealous”, the 23-year old YBNL signee is a proven songwriter with releases of good music such as “What If I Say” and “King”. This is not surprising considering that the youngster is being mentored by Olamide one of the best and most prolific in the industry.
For a first studio album, Fireboy is daring as “Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps” comes with no guest features. This is a break from the norm that sees new artists tending to overkill their first major projects with guest appearances.
Fireboy is sure of the viability of his style in an industry that pits him against equally new sounds as those of his contemporaries such as Rema, Joeboy and Oxlade.
The 13-track album is a vibe of good feelings and present the Afro-life crooner as a hybrid of Wande Coal and Adekunle Gold.
On “Need You” Fireboy shows off the strength of his voice on gentle guitar riffs as he serenades his love interest with lines such as “You sweet pass mango, you sweet pass agbalumo/No know where I wan go, omo mi o ma gbadun mo”.
We see Olamide/Zanku’s influence on “Omo Ologo”. “Vibration” is that track that makes you grab your lover and get on the dancefloor.
Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps” without doubt would go down as one of the best Nigerian albums to come out in 2019.
