Fireboy DML, releases new single, Eli, today.
Fireboy DML took to his Instagram page in the early hours of Friday morning to announce the release of his new single.
Eli has the Party Scatter crooner singing from an angle, different from his some of his former songs. This song has a mellow tone, and a soothing vibe.
The beat features a lot of percussion that encourages a slow whine instead of a gbe se.
Taking inspiration from Christianity, Fireboy calls on someone to save him from Delilah (a villian in the Bible) who calls him like “Jah Eli Jah.”
The phrase “Jah Eli Jah” is reminiscent of the prayer said by members of Cherubim and Seprahim, a popular religious body in Nigeria.
