When we thought the fun had ended for 2019, Olamide’s recent YBNL signee, Fireboy DML released his debut album Laughter, Tears and Goosebumps which people have deemed to be one of the best body of works put out this year.
Fireboy DML made waves earlier this year with the release of his Afro-life love song titled Jealous and has been on a steady roll since then. His album, Laughter, Tears and Goosebumps is comprised of 13 tracks and of the 13, one song stands out the most – the intro song Need You.
