Song Review: 'Someone' By Fireboy Dml, Yours Truly, Reviews, April 13, 2024Fireboy DML, a Nigerian singer-songwriter renowned for his beautiful vocals and compelling lyrics, has once again made a solid musical statement with his most recent track, “Someone.” The lovely song, made available on May 3, 2023, is the performer’s first official single since the release of his widely praised third studio album, “Playboy,” in August 2022. The much-awaited song demonstrates Fireboy DML’s ongoing musical development and range, affirming his status as one of Nigeria’s most promising young musicians.

The fusion of Afrobeats, R&B, and soul in “Someone” demonstrates Fireboy DML’s unique talent for blending many musical genres into a fluid and convincing audio experience. The song has a memorable melody and touching, relatable lyrics that deeply connect with listeners. Every note of “Someone” displays Fireboy DML’s extraordinary ability to evoke feelings through music, making it a promising album and a fitting way to start the year.

With its alluring “Ye ye ye ye ye” chant, the song’s entrance captures the attention of the listener. Fireboy DML’s soulful vocal dominates the opening verse, accompanied by a mellow, rhythmic instrumental arrangement that sets the mood for the rest of the song. The singer’s vulnerability is noticeable as he sings about the anxiety of losing a loved one and the difficulty of finding someone else to love.

The heartfelt question, “Where do I find someone, someone, someone to love me?” is recited by Fireboy DML in the chorus. Anyone who has ever felt the heartache of a possible breakup is sure to relate to this refrain. A sequence of “uh-uh-uh” noises are used in the post-chorus to give the song more depth and passion.

The poignant storyline of the song “Someone,” directed by Bruno Marin, is well complemented by the music video. The emotional lyrics and soulful vocals of Fireboy DML are visually portrayed, enhancing the overall effect and creating a lasting impression on the audience.

“Someone” proves Fireboy DML’s tremendous ability and distinctive sound, which has won him a devoted fan base and critical acclaim since his breakout single “Jealous” in 2018. The Nigerian musician has a bright future ahead of him as he keeps pushing the limits of modern African music.

Fireboy DML’s “Someone” is a compelling and intensely personal song that shows the singer’s development as an artist. However, the track could have benefited from a more diverse instrumental arrangement, as it may feel repetitive for some. Nevertheless, “Someone” further solidifies Fireboy DML’s position as a promising artist in the contemporary African music scene and leaves us eager to hear what he will produce next. The song will wow audiences with its alluring melody, poignant lyrics, and flawless fusion of Afrobeats, R&B, and soul. It will also reinforce Fireboy DML’s reputation as one of the most promising emerging singers in the Nigerian music scene. Fans and haters alike have much to look forward to from Fireboy DML in the future if “Someone” is any indicator.
