(+Lyrics+Meaning+Translataion) Peru by Fireboy DML “Sounds Wande Cole!”

I could have sworn that this song was by Wande Coal, especially in verse 2. I am sure that verse two was Wande Coal. It is too similar not to be his voice. What do you all think?

Who sang the song Peru?

Peru is a song by Nigerian raving artist of the moment, Fireboy DML.

But, where has he been though? He is right, we have indeed been looking for him.

The Review

Peru is a country in one of the continents in the world, South America. The other countries in Western South America include Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Argentina, Venezuela, Aruba, Uraguay, Paraquay, Trinidad and Tobago, check out other countries here-  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_America

What is the song Peru by Fireboy DML about?

Fireboy in this song confirms that people noticed his absence in the music industry for a while, and, they have been asking about his whereabouts which he replies Peru and also tells his loyal fans what he has been up to. He says he has been working on his forthcoming third album, traveling around the world, and has been “Living La Vida Loca.”

Fireboy is having fun and singing for people, performing at shows abroad, and they are dancing to it. 

This song was just all about the above until Fireboy decided to add the s-xual factor in verse two. 

View some lines that have s-xual undertone below

She say “me, I never see a guy like you” (like you) (She says she has ever seen a guy like me)

 Shey you like my tattoo? (Do you like my tattoo?)

Girl me I want to be inside you (inside you) (Girl, I want to be inside you.)

 She is my woman (woman)

 Inside p-na, na sweet like sugar (ahn-ahn)

 In my new van (new van)

What does Fireboy really mean by Peru don dey para?

I am thinking Fireboy used the word figuratively. Perhaps, the message he is trying to pass across is that he has overstayed in another country to the extent that the real owners and citizens of the country noticed him. He is touring different cities in Peru, San Franciso, Miami; he is having excessive fun that he is finding it difficult to leave the countries, especially Peru.

You can really tell that Fireboy is having massive fun. He did not even have time to compose up to 3 minutes of the song, just 2 minutes and 17 seconds. But, it is all good. The shorter the song, the sweeter I believe.

Lyrically:  The song is meaningful. Fireboy uses the song to explain what he has been doing since his temporary absence from the music scene. He has been working on his album. He also reminded his fans that he is still very much active in the music game. 

The song comes in three verses. The chorus “Peru para” was taken five times, and it predominated the song. The pre-chorus was taken thrice.

The pre-chorus is a response to his fans wondering about his whereabouts after his long absence and silence from the music industry. Fireboy went on lowkey after his second album, but, has now come out to tell all his fans worldwide that he is working on his third album. 

Verse 1 talks about a lady who has captured his heart and is trying to pin him down. Meanwhile, he just wants to mingle with her temporarily.

I can’t really relate this line to the entire song “They wan do me.” Any idea, feel free to share with us.

The artiste sang in pidgin and Yoruba. The lyrics are short and catchy. They are melodious to the ear.

Vocal: The artist sounded like Wande Coal. He has an appealing vocal.

Melody: This is a sweet melody. I really can’t stop singing this song. The instruments used to compose the song include Drum, Piano, Saxophone, and Violin.
